Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are=&0=& (once a big honcho at HBO) is writing a U.S. version of a Swedish legal thriller which is scheduled to emerge as the crowd-drawing CBS jewel called BLACK WIDOWS. (Why is a suit writing it instead of a writer? C’mon, y’all know the answer to that. Cuz every suit reaches the point where s/he is abso-fucking-lutely certain s/he can write better than any of the writers s/he’s worked with, and it’s my munching guess that’s what happened here. Dood’s wrong, of course. They always are. Contact your agent for the rewrite gig – ASAP.) Oliver Goldstick (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) is writing the pilot for a drama to be called THE TOWN over at The CW. This one’s based on a UK series created by Mike Barnett where a guy looking into his parents’ death discovers that their whole town was, as the press release says, “culpable.” (But if we know that going in, why do we want to watch the show? Huh, The CW? Nuh? Huh?)

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….)
