Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 11/14/14


Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are=&0=& (former Obama speechwriter) is writing the pilot for Showtime’s ANTHEM, a drama that “chronicles…what happens when our political system collapses under the weight of mistrust and partisan division.” (I dunno, gang. Sounds like a reality series to me. I sincerely apologize for making such an easy joke. But I think it’s our current crop of pols who should apologize to all of us for making it possible.) Nick Stoller & Jerrod Carmichael (two hot properties in CAA’s collection of such) are developing an NBC comedy based on Jerrod’s “irreverent stand up comedy.” (Lovin’ the use of the word “irreverent,” NBC, but in an era when every single new standup comic is described as “irreverent” shouldn’t that whole category simply be “irrelevant” instead?)

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….)
