Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  •  Moira Walley-Beckett (BREAKING BAD) is writing an unnamed Starz drama pilot about the gritty, dark side of…ballet? (C’mon, ya gotta love the switch. Ya gotta…unless, of course, you don’t.)
  • Neal Purvis & Robert Wade (both of SKYFALL) are writing the pilot and, we suppose, more for BARBARELLA, currently being readied for international syndication. (Yeppers, it’s that BARBARELLA. Yippee!)
  • Bryan Cranston (actor – BREAKING BAD) has a first-look deal with Sony to develop and produce new series…and then star in them. (Once upon a time this kind of thing was reserved for writers. But, well, we’re all writers now…right?)
  • Rashida Jones & Will McCormack (CELESTE & JESSE FOREVER) have a deal with Warner Brothers Television to develop, write, and produce their own TV projects there. (Yes, she’s the actress from PARKS AND RECREATION. We toldja everybody’s a writer now.)
