Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

Whoa! It’s the second week of December and your little muncher has come back from a holiday in a very secret, very special place (think The South Pole but not) only to find that, lo and behold, there are still a few year-end pilot and other writing deals to report. So:

  • Charles Higson (YOUNG BOND) is writing an ITV pilot for a 10 part drama series based on Robert Louis Stevenson‘s Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. (To which I say, with absolutely no irony cuz you know I never do the irony thing, “Amen!” Looking forward to this one, brothers and sisters!)
  • Ben McMillan & Meredith Philpott (hot writers we never heard of cuz NEWBIES!) are writing the pilot for an NBC comedy series called #WINNING about…well, munchilito can’t really tell what it’s about from the description. (Which only goes to show you how desperate NBC must be. Talk about “blind pilot commitments!”)
  • Catherine Tregenna has become only the fifth woman ever to get a writing assignment on DOCTOR WHO. (Loude sing “Halloo!”)
  • Anna Fricke (BEING HUMAN) is writing a Fox pilot based on Deep State, a comic book created by Justin Jordan & Ariela Kristantina, about an FBI agent and her partner go after a mysterious group that covers up all the big – and real – conspiracies by promoting the idiotic fake ones we see in the news every day. (Sounds interesting, but I haven’t read the comic…yet.)

That’s it for now, munchachos. Don’t forget to write in and tell yers truly what you’ve sold when you sell it. Cuz TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
