Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 3/23/13

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Erica Rivinoja (UP ALL NIGHT) has made an overall deal with Sony Pictures Television for the usual writing and developing stuff. (UP ALL NIGHT, you’ll remember was such a huge failure on NBC that the star quit. Doesn’t it warm you heart to know that even today we can still fail up?)
  • Ricky Gervais (THE OFFICE, etc.) is bringing back David Brent on his new YouTube channel. (Further proof, if anybody needed it, that web series are the new Skynet, destined to take over the world.)
  • Casey Johnson & David Windsor (DON’T TRUST THE B—- IN APARTMENT 23) are now developing projects for ABC Studios. (Doesn’t it warm your heart to know that even today we can still fail up? Oh, wait–)
  • Jane Espenson (we think of her as the Dowager Queen of TV sci-fi) and Zack Estrin (ZERO HOUR) are set as writers-producers on the upcoming ABC project WONDERLAND, a spinoff from ONCE UPON A TIME. (Now there’s a switch. Jane’s actually worked on shows – like ONCE UPON A TIME – that succeeded. Good thing Zack’s here to keep proving the failure rule. God, we love Hollywood!)
