  • Anna Fricke (BEING HUMAN) has a new overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television and will serve as showrunner of HIEROGLYPH, for which she wrote a pilot so hot that they aren’t even wasting time shooting a pilot. It’s just go, go, go on the series itself. (Hey, Anna, you don’t know the munchman but I’m flat out calling it – munchie adores your work. Good luck on this one!)
  • Matt Miller, Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas have a deal with TV Land to bring their web series, TEACHERS, to the Big Time Small Screen.  (And if this doesn’t get all you TVWriter™ers working on your peer production you deserve what you get…or, in that case, don’t get. CREATE YOUR OWN WEB SERIES, DAMMIT. AL OF YOU!)
  • Seth Fisher & Danny MacKey (newbs!) are developing JACKASS OF ALL TRADES, a comedy about a guy trying to make his living via odd jobs on Craigslist, for TBS. (Oh frabjous day! All our announcements are belong to really cool people finally getting the kinds of chances they deserve! Halloo, hallay!)
