Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are
by munchman

  • Scott Gold (UNDER THE DOME) is developing DEEP WEB, a drama series about a computer genius who, “with the help of his geeks gone wild posse, evolves into the overlord of the internet’s underworld,” for Spike. (Cuz BREAKING BAD. Nuff said?)
  • Tom Kapinos (CALIFORNICATION) is developing LUCIFER, yet another DC Comics-related series for Fox. (Flying in the face of the common wisdom that TV never does anything new, this time around we have a comic villain nobody’s ever heard of, a network that never does comics related material, and a dramedy creator, all working together on a series that, if it follows the not-very-popular comic book, will be about the devil deciding to abandon hell and open a piano bar in L.A. Hmm, that same old, same old starting to look a little better now?)
  • Scot Armstrong (THE HANGOVER II) is adapting the ancient film, PROBLEM CHILD, into a comedy series for NBC. (Uh-oh, now that yer munchikins reads that, I’m thinking LUCIFER won’t be so bad!)
  • Kevin Sussman (BIG BANG THEORY) has sold a comedy pilot script called WIFE OF CRIME to CBS, about “a straitlaced guy from Staten Island who marries into an Italian family with ties to the mob.” (Hey, I’m laughing already. I mean, what else can I say? Capish?)
  • Jordan Roter (newbie!) is writing the pilot for CBS’s LETTERS TO MY DAUGHTER’S FUTURE THERAPIST, a comedy in which a mother’s voiceover explains her actions to her daughter’s future therapist, confident that said daughter will blame her for everything bad in her life. (Yes, the muncher lurves this one. Especially where I got to write “newbie.” Way to go Jordan Roter!)

That’s it for now. Write in and tell munchilito what you’ve sold today. TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
