Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 6/3/13

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • John Glenn (EAGLE EYE) has made an overall development deal with Universal Television. (Because he came very close with several pilots in the most recent pilot season and Uni is convinced that he’ll strike gold for them this time.)
  • Tim Schlattmann (DEXTER) has a new development deal with Warner Brothers TV for a couple of projects, one for broadcast TV and one for cable. (We don’t know what’s going on here, but we gotta love a writer whose credits range from ROSEANNE to DEXTER via SMALLVILLE. Can’t say this dude isn’t versatile.)
  • Meredith Averill (the upcoming series STAR-CROSSED) has signed an overall deal with CBS TV Studios, having risen from the ranks, where she began as a producer’s assistant. (And now she’s a showrunner. Our little girl’s all growed up. Sigh…)
  • The GRUMPY CAT movie is going forward at Broken Road, which produced STATE OF THE UNION, among other feature films. (Proving that you can’t keep a good meme down. Or in this case, a bad meme. Come to think of it, can there in fact be a “good” meme? Hmm…)
  • Eli Attie (HOUSE) is joining the new series MIND GAMES as a writer-executive producer. (Because before HOUSE he was a writer for some guy named Barack Obama, and if the White House isn’t a place where you can become expert at mind games, no place is.)
