Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 11/22/12

Showbiz Secret Number Three: There is no Showbiz Secret Number Three

  • Nina Colman (DR. DOOLITTLE 3) is writing the pilot for BOOK CLUB, the CW’s adaptation of Hope Harman’s documentary about a young woman who starts a book club in New York (because the CW thinks its teen audience will go gaga over reading? What?).
  • Peter Calloway (BROTHERS & SISTERS) is writing the pilot for MTV’s adaptation of Gwenda Bond’s novel Blackwood, about a bunch of supernatural weirdness (because Kelsey Grammer’s company is producing and supernatural anything is hot now, don’tcha know?).
  • Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (ZOMBIELAND) are writing the pilot for HBO’s OUR FATHER, a drama about a “powerful pastor” who “fights to rediscover faith and connect with his family” (because God always opens well in middle America, where HBO’s audience is weakest, so…).
  • Ryan Murphy’s (LAST RESORT) adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart has died as a feature film project but is now at HBO as a miniseries (because dead big screen projects by writers whose most recent series was just cancelled just say “Big Winner” all over ’em, right?).
