Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are
by munchman

  • Kate Robin (SIX FEET UNDER) is developing CARTHAGE, a drama about the after-effects of the rape of a teenage girl in a small town, for HBO. (Cuz the after-effects of the rape of, say, a 40 year old might be boring? Or are teenage actresses just easier to exploit?)
  • Dave Hemingson (upcoming FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES) has a new overall deal with ABC Studios. (Cuz his previous shows, DON’T TRUST THE B— IN APARTMENT 23 and TRAFFIC LIGHT (?!) were such big hits, your little muncher supposes.)
  • Julie Plec (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) has a new overall deal with Warner Bros. TV. (Cuz she’s got a bunch of shows on the air, don’tcha know? And that, justifiably, makes Julie hot, hot, hot!)
  • Jennie Snyder Urman (EMILY OWENS, MD) has extended her deal at CBS TV Studios. (Woo! Talk about big hits. EMILY OWNS is right up there with – wait, don’t tell me – DON’T TRUST THE BITCH. How can you not love a business that rewards failure as well as TV does?)
