Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Graham Gordy & Michael D. Fuller (RECTIFY) are writing the pilot for Cinemax’s QUARRY, based on a series of novels by Max Allan Collins (who, incidentally, is 10 times the writer either of these guys could ever be. RECTIFY? Come on!).
  • Alfonso H. Moreno (NCIS) has sold his spec science fiction drama pilot to Syfy (and it’s about a couple of people on the run cuz, you know, that’s all viewers care about, right?).
  • Ryan Murphy (GLEE) & Lauren Gussis (DEXTER) want some network or other to buy their script for an “exploration of sexuality” (and we, licentious pigs that we are, are right here rooting for that to happen. “Pigs,” “rooting,” get it? Huh?).
  • A couple actors named Steve Carell and James Gandolfini are looking for a writer for BONE WARS, a comedy about rival paleontologists who keep sabotaging each other’s discoveries..and it’s a true story (so get out your samples, kids, and accost Carell and Gandolfini at the next red light, or while they’re eating dinner, or shopping. You can make it happen…go,go,go!).
