Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Lauren Iungerich (AWKWARD) is developing TOUGH COOKIE, a comedy about “a young mother who isn’t ready to parent and her daughter who doesn’t want to be parented,” for ABC Family. (Yer friendly neighborhood muncher identifies completely with that scenario – I had a GF who could have been both characters – but that doesn’t mean I’d want to see this show. In other words, “Yikes!” But maybe that’s just me?)
  • Barbie Adler (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER) is also developing a comedy for ABC Family. This one’s called KEVIN FROM WORK and is about “a young man…who professes his love to a co-worker, thinking he’ll never see her again [after taking another job, only to discover that] the duo must continue to work together.” (WTF? That’s my munching life story!? Gotta get a gig on that series – so I can claim that my situation was just research. Everybody’ll buy that, right? Right? Uh-oh….)
  • Peter Tolan (RESCUE ME) is writing the pilot for THE STUDIO, a drama about behind the scenes greed and opportunism at a film studio in the early 1990s. (Cuz it’s all cleaned up now? Is that what we’re supposed to believe? How dumb to the development execs think we are? Uh-oh, maybe we’re all better off if we never learn the answer to that one.)

That’s it for now, munchaladas. Don’t forget to write in and tell yers truly what you’ve sold when you sell it. Cuz TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
