  • Mark Perez (THE COUNTRY BEARS) is writing the pilot for NBC’s cruise ship comedy, PORT OF MIAMI. (Now there’s a title that pretty much says everything that has to be said about the project. Thanks for the respite from thought, NBC P.R. whizzes.)
  • Jeremy Carver (SUPERNATURAL) is writing the pilot for a TV version of the not so thrilling 2000 “sci-fi thriller” FREQUENCY. (Nothing to see there, folks. Move on, move on.)
  • Mike Daniels (SONS OF ANARCHY) has a new overall deal with Universal TV. (And his first act of contrition for making so much moolah is to join the studio’s new FBI drama, SHADES OF BLUE, starring Jennifer Lopez. Yeah, that’ll be fun. Woohoo!)
  • Jim Mickle & Nick Damici (COLD IN JULY) are writing the pilot for HAP AND LEONARD, a miniseries based on a series of books by Joe Lonsdale about “a pair of best friends and martial arts experts who struggle through misadventure in a bid to stay on the right side of the law in 1980 East Texas. (About which yer munchy buddy can only ask, “Why?” Why try to stay on the right side of the law in a place like East Texas where, plainly, the law ain’t ‘agonna reflect what anybody in the audience with a brain thinks it should? Oh, wait, I said “with a brain.” Sorry, my mistake, amigos.)

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….)
