Latest News About Writers Who Are Doing Better Than We Are

  • Eric Ledgin & Michael Blieden (both of LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON) are writing the pilot for IFC’s INTERNATIONAL PLAN, based on their friendship. (Which we’re sure is unique and extraordinary, right, kids?)
  • Megan Mullally (WILL & GRACE) & Tina Kapousis (newbie) are creating and writing TWO IDIOTS for the very same IFC, about two whacky women living in the Beverly Hills Hotel with their butler/shared boyfriend. (Because that too will be a unique and extraordinary relationship, we’re sure y’all agree.)
  • Jamie Foxx (yeppers, that Jamie Foxx) is writing/producing/directing an unnamed Syfy horror anthology series. (Which seems perfect to us because word has it that Jamie’s a bit of a horror himself…and so multi-talented.)
  • Michael Perry (THE RIVER) is writing a 4-hour miniseries adaptation of Larry Niven’s classic s-f novel Ringworld for Syfy. (And we’re hoping against hope that it’ll be better than that channel’s attempt at another s-f classic, RIVERWORLD.)
  • Michael DeLuca (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) is adapting Arthur C. Clark’s Childhood’s End for Syfy. (Which could be wonderful or cornball as hell…but certainly unique and extraordinary, we’re absolutely sure.)
