Latest News About Writers Doing Better Than We Are

  • Diane Farr (NUMB3RS) will write a “semi-autobiographical comedy” for NBC based on her memoir, Kissing Outside the Lines. (Yes, she’s known as an actress, not a writer, but, hey, she’s cute, you know?)
  • Alison McDonald (NURSE JACKIE) is adapting her short video SHE GOT PROBLEMS in a pilot script for ABC. (Strangely, she also acts and does stand-up as well. Infer what ye may.)
  • David Goodman (THE FAMILY GUY) and Jason Ruiz (newby!) are teaming up to write MURDER POLICE, an animated comedy about a bumbling detective for Fox. (Neither of these guys is an actress, but Newby Ruiz is a top animator, which in our minds is much better prep for the rigors/horrors of writing a new series.)
  • Andy Bobrow (COMMUNITY) is writing the pilot for a sitcom, ROOKIE, about a young woman “reinventing” herself as a cop. (What? She was a robber before?)
