Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Aisha Muharrar (PARKS & RECREATION) is developing an NBC comedy series about a “young, agnostic woman who inherits a church” after which, presumably, hilarity ensues. (Silly muncher, I had no idea that churches were private property to be passed on through families. Gonna have to re-read all the “begats” now….)
  • Allison Kiessling (newbie!) has sold a comedy series pilot called THE MIGHTY CAMILLA to ABC about another young woman (dunno if she’s agnostic) who “gets recruited by a handsome man from the future as the unlikely savior of humanity.” (At least I’m assuming the protagonist is a woman cuz if she’s a man you know that the PR peeps would be making a whole big deal about, well, certain aspects of sexual attraction, right?)
  • Teddy Tenenbaum (HELLRAISER) is developing NBS’s THE ZONE, a sci-fi-esque drama with a premise so convoluted that all I can come up with is that with luck it’ll be like ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK but with an ass-kicking babe as the lead. (Which means yer munchilito will watch even if there’s no hilarity at all. I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not the babe part that interests me, no, no, no. It’s the ass-kicking. So, see, I’m still that politically correct dude y’all love.)
  • Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett (NIM’S ISLAND) are writing a reboot of – OMG! OMG! the ancient Bill Bixby vehicle THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE’S FATHER for Fox. (Cuz…cuz…c’mon, kids, help me out. Why the fuck would they even think of doing this? No, never mind. I don’t even want to know.)

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….)
