Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Dan Kopelman (RULES OF ENGAGEMENT) is writing the pilot for an untitled Nickelodeon comedy about a 12 year old Army brat. (Although the majority of sites that report on this kind of thing bury his name and concentrate on the fact that one of the producers is the star of another upcoming Nick series. Notice that we aren’t naming her. Take that, big stars!)
  • Jack Moore (newb!) has landed a gig on Fox’s new sitcom US & THEM. (And he did it via his Twitter feed @seinfeldtoday, which features loglines for nonexistent contemporary episodes of the old SEINFELD series. Why didn’t you think of that? Huh?)
  • Nahnatchka Khan  & Corey Nickerson (DON’T TRUST THE B— IN APT 23)  are writing the pilot for FATRICK, a Fox Network sitcom about, no, you’re wrong, not a fat guy but a former fat guy. Ha! (See how they did that? Pulled the big set-up switcheroo, we man? That’s the kind of thing that makes you rich even if your last series bombed.)
  • Todd Holland (TWIN PEAKS) is writing an untitled science fiction project about an immortal bounty hunter to NBC. (Because THE HIGHLANDER feature film reboot is doing so well. Oh, wait, hasn’t it been abandoned? )
