  • Steve Molaro (BIG BANG THEORY) has a new overall deal with Warner Brothers Television, where he will develop new projects and continue as showrunner on BIG BANG THEORY. (Cuz try as he might, yer ole bud munchman can’t come up with one snarky thing to say about a guy who’s given us so many half-hours of enjoyment for so many years. And believe you me, I’m trying.)
  • Sandra Kobrin is adapting Full Circle, the book she and Gloria Killian co-write about Gloria’s struggle to get through law school while serving time for a wrongful murder conviction into a series pilot for Entertainment One. (Except that the series will be called INSIDE OUT and there’s no network deal yet so this announcement isn’t much different than you or I saying, “Hey, I’m writing a pilot!” Definitely a lesson to be learned here.)
  • Erik Sommers (HAPPY ENDINGS) is an overall deal with Sony TV. (Cuz CBS is high on his pilot, CUZ-BROS…for reasons that the titles sure as #@$! doesn’t make clear.)
  • Hilary Winston (BAD TEACHER) also has a new deal with Sony and is officially hot, hot, hot. (Just ask her agents at UTA. In fact, Hilary is so hot that she’s also a contributing editor to “Playboy Magazine.” I know, I know, “Playboy” is so cold and outdated that only a few of you will have any inkling why I’ve even mentioned it. To you others I say, think interweb porn only…really, really boring.)

  • Anna Fricke (BEING HUMAN) has a new overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television and will serve as showrunner of HIEROGLYPH, for which she wrote a pilot so hot that they aren’t even wasting time shooting a pilot. It’s just go, go, go on the series itself. (Hey, Anna, you don’t know the munchman but I’m flat out calling it – munchie adores your work. Good luck on this one!)
  • Matt Miller, Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas have a deal with TV Land to bring their web series, TEACHERS, to the Big Time Small Screen.  (And if this doesn’t get all you TVWriter™ers working on your peer production you deserve what you get…or, in that case, don’t get. CREATE YOUR OWN WEB SERIES, DAMMIT. AL OF YOU!)
  • Seth Fisher & Danny MacKey (newbs!) are developing JACKASS OF ALL TRADES, a comedy about a guy trying to make his living via odd jobs on Craigslist, for TBS. (Oh frabjous day! All our announcements are belong to really cool people finally getting the kinds of chances they deserve! Halloo, hallay!)
