Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 9/3/14

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are
by munchman

  • Michael Seitzman (INTELLIGENCE) is developing a CBS series called CODE BLACK in which, well, from the P.R. description, it seems that we’ll be seeing and even harder, edgier version of E.R. (Cuz why come up with something new when there’s a whole new generation of TV viewers who haven’t seen what’s old? Which almost sounds logical. No, not creative but…logical.)
  • Lindsey Shockly (TROPHY WIFE) has an overall deal to develop series and work on staff for ABC Studios. (And, why not? She has network TV experience on TROPHY WIFE and HELLO LADIES, and yer munchero here is absolutely sure that the fact that they tanked had nothing to do with Ms. Shockly’s contributions.)
  • Max Borenstein (GODZILLA) is writing the pilot for a TV version of MINORITY REPORT. (Which makes this particular Philip K. Dick fan flash a major kinda smile. Yes, it’s true, this is one deal methinks I can like.)
  • Sarah Watson (PARENTHOOD) is writing the pilot for an untitled CBS medical series about – ooh, you’ll never guess – “a controversial, outrageous, young tech titan who opens his own hospital with a cutting-edge approach to medicine.” Gotta admit – I’d rather watch that than another version of E.R. But it’s hard to imagine CBS doing anything with “cutting-edge” tech.)
