  • Ann Peacock (THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA) is adapting The Dovekeepers historical novel about the Siege of Masada for CBS. (And don’t let anybody tell you there’s a happy ending. The Masada story is the original, “everybody dies, feel bad but try to keep on breathing tale from way back when. I don’t care how well it gets down, I’m definitely passing on viewing.)
  • Paul Corrigan & Brad Walsh (MODERN FAMILY) have a new overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV and will keep on keeping on as exec producers of the show. (Why report on overall deals? Um…cuz I really wish I had one? Yeah, that’s right, I really, really do.)
  • Nic Pizzolatto (TRUE DETECTIVE) has a new overall deal at HBO which is really a way of keeping him around for another season of TRUE DETECTIVE even though nobody’s seen the damn show yet. (Yeah, I’d take Nic’s deal, but, hell, I’d rather have his name. What a great damn name!)
