Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 11/23/14


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

  • David Arata (CHILDREN OF MEN) is adapting yet another comic book into a TV series. This one’s called FROM HELL and is going to FX. (Yeppers, comic book nerds, the print version of FROM HELL was written by Alan Moore. Anybody know if he signed off on this? If they’ll be using his name? Yer pal munchikins really wants to know.)
  • Jeff Eastin (WHITE COLLAR) has renewed his overall writing and producing deal with Fox TV. (So we can expect more mediocrity to land on our teeny little cellphone screens. Ain’t showbiz grand?)
  • Bill Martin & Mike Schiff (GROUNDED FOR LIFE) are the new showrunners of TV Land comedy THE SOUL MAN. (Showbiz and TVWriter™ vets know the drill: If you know these guys, call ’em, take ’em to lunch. Pitch your heart out so your agent can jump for joy and tell you how he got you staffed!)
  • Clifton Campbell (THE GLADES) is writing an ABC drama pilot based on a series of books by Ingrid Thoft who basically sound like refugees from a Shonda Rimes show. (Which ain’t bad, really, if, like a certain muncher, you like to get stoned and watch primetime soaps.)

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….)
