Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 1/13/13

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  •  Shepard Boucher (MEN AT WORK) has written an unnamed comedy pilot for Fox TV which is being shopped around with Sarah Michelle Gellar attached as the star. (Wonder if Boucher has been paid anything yet because normally companies only spend a network’s money and not their own.)
  • Emily Spivey, creator of NBC’s sitcom UP ALL NIGHT has left the show. (No replacement has been named, so get those credit lists and spec sitcoms ready, gang.)
  • Cher (yeah, that Cher) & Ron Zimmerman (CHARLES IN CHARGE) are teaming up to write a pilot for Logo about life in ’60s Hollywood. (Yes, he’s her BF. But she’s really going to do a lot of writing on this project. Rilly.)
  • Liz Heldens & Peter Elkoff (both from DECEPTION) are writing/running CAMP, a drama about , well, summer camp. (The press release calls it a drama but also compares the show to MEATBALLS and DAZED AND CONFUSED, which means that somebody else here must also be pretty damn dazed and confused, don’tcha think?)
  • Agnes Nixon (ALL MY CHILDREN & ONE LIFE TO LIVE creator) is aboard for The Online Network’s web series versions of both shows as a consultant. (Which means the shows might actually get made after all. Maybe. Um, on second thought it probably doesn’t mean anything at all. Sorry.)
