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

  • Sam Chalsen (SLEEPY HOLLOW) & Nelson Greaves (CYBERNATURAL) are writing the pilot for POTUS, a Fox drama about – what else? – a fictional Prez of the U.S. who lets his power go to his head and starts doing what’s “right” regardless of the laws of the land. (And when Fox says “right,” that’s what they mean – cuz it’s the braintrust behind 24 that’ll be running this baby.)
  • Stephen Nathan & Joe Collier (BONES) have their own new series brewing at Fox. ZOOBIQUITY is a medical drama based on a nonfiction book by Barbara Turner & Kathryn Bowers. (Which tells munchito here that it might be good cuz,yeah, I admit it, I loves me my BONES.)
  • Dan Kopelman (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE) is developing a CBS comedy about “four best friends from college who are still living together as bachelors 10 years after graduation. (Sounds like a tragedy to me. Or maybe the tragedy is mine. Have I really aged out of the TV sitcom target demo at 31? Yikes!)
  • Jason Reitman (yeppers, the feature dude) & Zander Lehmann (newbie!) are developing an NBC comedy called CASUAL, about, it sez here, “the perils of dating, online and off.” (Don’tcha love the timelessness of the concept? Even this munching fool of an alte cocker novel can relate.)

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….)
