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

  • Erica Messer (CRIMINAL MINDS) is writing the pilot for a CRIMINAL MINDS spinoff about an FBI division that helps people who run into trouble when they’re abroad. (Is this a real thing? Then where were they when yer friendly neighborhood munchman got into that little mix-up in Kralow last year? Who woulda thought that a little oregano in a carry-on could create such a stir?)
  • Peter Tolan (RESCUE ME) is said to be hooking up with George Clooney for a”one-hour dark comedy…[which] will reportedly explore the movie business during the early 1990s.” (Or maybe my source said Peter and George Clooney were just hooking up, period. Who woulda thought that a little oregano could have such a big effect on short term memory? Certainly not moi.)
  • Holy crap! Munchadero here just got a tip from a reliable source (What? You don’t trust a recently fired P.A.?) that the married showrunner of my favorite series currently on the air and scheduled to remain on for the foreseeable future just wrote a drama screenplay that will catapult the equally married co-star of the series to film stardom…and at the same time launch both parties into a public relationship that may do wonders for their careers but definitely will destroy their current relationships. Shades of Nikke Fink! (And, yeppers, all the language I just used is designed to give clues/hints to readers who like that sort of thing. Munchikins, of course, finds blind gossip vile, but, hey, this is showbiz and whoring is part of the gig, am I right?)

That’s it for now, munchaladas. Let us know in the comments if you think you’ve figured out who the blind item is about and/or what the TV and film projects are. And 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….)
