  • David Mamet (hey, dude won a Pulitzer fucking prize!) is developing the Fox mini-series 7 DEADLY SINS. (But he’s leaving out the 8th: Writing a mini-series for the despicable minions of his Satanic Majesty Rupert Murdoch, who, you know, owns Fox.)
  • Josh Parkinson (EASTBOUND & DOWN) is writing BY THE HORNS, an NBC pilot for a drama searies about a South Texas crime syndicate. (Cuz everyone knows Texas is a mob stronghold, right? New Jersey Southwest. Sureee it is.)
  • James D. Parriott (COVERT AFFAIRS) is developing a TNT drama series called SIX about “the aftermath of a Category 6 tornado that obliterates the majority of a small Kansas town and unearths years of horrific secrets.” But it’ll undoubtedly leave out the most horrific secret of all: How the hell TNT ever bought this.)
  • Eoghan O’Donnell (TEEN WOLF) is writing the pilot for THE MESSENGERS, a CW science fiction series about people who turn into “angels of the coming Apocalypse.” (Teenage angels, we bet cuz…the CW.)
  • Ligiah Villalobos (she’s a household word in our house) is writing an NBC pilot for LOTERIA, a Spanish-language series about in-fighting in a wealthy Mexican-American family. (We’re thinking that the purpose of this show is to make all non-wealthy Mexican-Americans – and anybody else who watches but isn’t a zillionaire – feel like caca, but what do we know?)
