  • A.M. Homes (THE L WORD) is writing the pilot for a U.S. version of the U.K. standby procedural, WIRE IN THE BLOOD. (Cuz it’s so fun to start the day’s announcements with yet another retread, albeit of a very intense and frightening series. Way too intense and frightening, in fact, for yer munchausen to be able to watch it alone in a dark room. Or in company in a light room, for that matter. Gleeps, fans, I am so a wuss….)
  • Bill Burr & Michael Price (the first is a stand-up comic, the second is a writer on THE SIMPSONS) have sold an animated series described as a “period family comedy” to Netflix. (No word on what period they’re talking about, so maybe there’s still time to get them to change it into an exclamation point instead. Email, gang. Send it to Netflix and change the world!)
  • Maggie Carey (THE TO DO LIST) is writing the pilot for an ABC comedy called THE BIG HOLE, about “the generational clash between an entitled millennial and her baby boomer boss.”  (Know how each episode should end? Like it would in real life, with the boomer boss firing the entitled millennial. I mean, that’s sure as well what always happens to millennial, um, me.)
  • Don Todd (SAMANTHA WHO?) has sold ABC a drama aboue “a woman who wakes up in an airport with complete amnesia and hires a dysfunctional father-son detective agency to find out who she is. (Well, at least munchito can honestly say that he (that’s “I”) ain’t never seen nor heard of sech a show before in my entitled, millennial life.)

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….)
