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

  • Nick Betancourt (NECESSARY ROUGHNESS) is writing a pilot based on the comic book mini-series Boom! created by Gary Phillips & Marc Laming. It’s all about a professional money launderer so at least it’ll be clean. (Sorry about that, gang. Couldn’t resist)
  • Max Mutchnick (Yes, the Max Mutchnick) is developing the series QUICK SHOTS OF FALSE HOPE for HBO, about a ’70s era single mom looking for a husband. (Looks like somebody didn’t get the whole “It’s time to treat women like human beings and not slavish stereotypes” memo. Thumbs down, folks. Yeppers, I can’t resist that either.)
  • Gil Ozeri (HAPPY ENDINGS) is writing the pilot for a Fox comedy about “a family of two-bit criminals who decide to pull off an elaborate Ponzi scheme.” (Sounds to yer friendly neighborhood munchman as tho this show’s gonna be the Ponzi scheme. Jeeze!)
  • Andrew Hinderaker (a playwright, which makes him a TV newbie, hooray!) is writing a GLEE-type pilot for the CW that the network describes as “ENTOURAGE meets 30 FEET FROM STARDOM. (To which the muncher has to ask, “What the hell is 30 FEET FROM STARDOM?)

That’s it for now, munchachos. 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….)
