TOSHIBA Exif JPEG

Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are=&0=& (the upcoming series YOUR FAMILY OR MINE) are writing the pilot for TAKE IT FROM US, an NBC comedy series about “a couple in their 50s who tell their son and his new fiancee all the mistakes they made in life in hopes the new couple can avoid making the same mistakes.” (And if that sounds like a recently retired comedy where a certain father tells his kids how he met their mother, well, whaddaya know?) Christopher Hampton (ATONEMENT) is adapting the ancient Edith Wharton novel The Custom of the Country into a miniseries for some cable channel or other. (In other words, “to be announced.” But this being Hollywood, even though there’s no place to show the thing, there’s already a star – Scarlet Johannson. To which yer totally smitten munchburger here can say only one thing, “Huzzah!” Which translates into TVWriter™ese as, “Hmm, now that Scarlet’s a Very Big Deal this sucker might actually get made. Too bad the very late Ms. Wharton won’t get to see our favorite superheroine in action. But we will. Hehehe.)

That’s it for now. Write in and tell munchilito what you’ve sold today. TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
