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

  • Deborah Kaplin & Harry Elfont (MAKE OF HONOR) are writing the pilot for a Fox TV series version of the film HITCH. (“From,” as Steve Allen (remember him, anybody?) used to say, “the movie So What, written by Who Cares?” Steverino knew something, I’ll tell you that.)
  • Rand Ravich (CRISIS) is writing the pilot for a Fox TV series based on FRANKENSTEIN. (But not on Universal’s classic version of said tome. Cuz that one’s going to the bigger screen as part of a monster movie Universal is creating with the intention of being even more marvelously profitable than, you know, Marvel.)
  • Wellesley Wild (TED) is writing a pilot for a U.S. version of the Australian web series, THE WEATHERMAN for, oh look, for Fox again. (This is the third Fox reboot of the day. What’s that tell us about Fox Network creativity, huh? Right – a lot. All of it…icky.)
  • Matt Hubbard (30 ROCK) is writing the pilot for Fox’s CABOT COLLEGE, a totally original, absolutely non-rebooted or adapted comedy based on the life of comedian-actress Fortune Feimster, who will, of course, star in the show. (Christ, even when they go with new stuff Fox still totally fills yer friendly neighborhood muncher with bad feelings. What do I feel bad about now? Let’s just say that the very unfamiliar name of Fortune Feimster is way too much like being in Canada itself – in other words, it’s like being in a parallel world that looks like ours except that everything everybody there takes for granted makes me go, “WTF?”)

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….)
