Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 8/23/13

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Dan Kopelman  (RULES OF ENGAGEMENT) has sold the pilot for THE HENCHMAN, a sitcom, to Fox. (PR descriptions remind us of both DESPICABLE ME and THE VENTURE BROTHERS plus it’s live-action, so we’re smiling in anticipation.)
  • Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky, & Danny Chung (THE OFFICE) have sold GORGEOUS MORONS, a sitcom about two very buff but very stupid brothers to CBS. (Which reminds us of every Coen Brothers film ever made so, you know, how bad can it be?)
  • Jason Horwitch (RUBICON) has sold NOONE, a romantic detective series pilot, to Fox. (Where it’ll be run by BONES’ creator/EP Hart Hanson, so – OMG! – we’re looking forward to this one too.)
  • Mike Arnold (ARCHER) is writing the pilot for an untitled ABC sitcom, and, frankly, we don’t care what it’s about we’ll watch it anyway. (Cuz ARCHER just happens to be the best-written show in the history of the entertainment biz, so…)
  • Kelly Masterson (upcoming KILLING KENNEDY) is writing the pilot for an  ABC murder trial mystery called LIMELIGHT. (This one sadly breaking our current optimistic streak because KILLING KENNEDY is based on a book by Bill O’Reilly and, well, you know….)
