Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon (PREACHER comic series) are developing the comic about a Texas preacher and the various manifestations of evil he hangs with as a series for AMC. (And we think it could really work there cuz it makes BREAKING BAD look all warm and fuzzy.)
  • Jan Nash (MEMPHIS BEAT) is the new showrunner on RIZZOLI & ISLES. (So if you know her, time to take the nice lady to lunch and pitch your little heart out while she’s still re-staffing.)
  • Chad Kultgen (THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE) has written the pilot for NBC’s BAD JUDGE, a comedy about a “hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman” who also happens to be a criminal court judge. (We see exactly how this would work as a drama. But comedy? We’re looking forward to seeing this one to find out.)
  • Amanda Lund & Matt Gourley (GHOST GHIRLS web series) are writing WUNDERLAND, a Fox comedy about what it’s like to work at a place just like Disneyland that, of course, isn’t Disneyland. (We had our hopes up for about a second…but then we saw that Diablo Cody is the producer. So we’re going out on a limb to say that this one will probably be…meh.)
  • Erin Ehrlich (AWKWARD) is writing an unnamed NBC comedy about “young 20-something nursing students” and “their ups and downs.” (Aren’t you glad they included the word “young” as well as the actually, you know, age? Cuz otherwise we all might have thought they were old 20-somethings, right?)
