Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 3/9/13

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Roy Lee (BATES MOTEL) & John Middleton (Also BATES MOTEL) have made a first-look deal with Fox 21. (And, since Fox 21 emphasizes cable shows like HOMELAND and SONS OF ANARCHY, can more work for A&E at al be far behind?)
  • Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD comic creator ) has sold his latest comic as a series to FOX International Channels. (And if you had any doubt about who the real showrunner of WALKING DEAD is they sure as hell should be as good as the previous official showrunners now.)
  • Greg Garcia (creator of RAISING HOPE) has left the series to concentrate on his two CBS pilots. (And, no, the HOPE gig isn’t open, sorry. It goes to Mike Mariano, who’s already an EP of the show.)
  • Sara Gran (author of the Claire DeWitt detective novels) will write the pilot for a TNT drama based on her books. (And, yes, we think that means we all should be publishing our own detective series now because, hell, the networks are buying the damn things. The future of television is…self-publishing? Cool!)
