Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 4/3/14

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

  • Shane Brennan (NCIS everything!) has a new overall deal with CBS TV studios. (Whatever this deal is for, your incredible shrinking munchman believes it isn’t enough. Dude has CBS’s biggest hits to his credit. They should turn the network over to him and let Les His Satanic Majesty Mooves go back to tending bar.)
  • JJ Connolly (LAYER CAKE ?WTF?) is adapting Wilbur Smith’s novel Birds of Prey into a series scheduled for the UK. (So we know it has to be good. After all…it’s going to be British. Woo hoo!)
  • David Benioff & Dan Weiss (GAME OF THRONES) have signed on for two more seasons on the show. (Which is great news cuz munch me would much rather hang with those guys than with THRONES creator George R.R. Martin. Can you imagine GRRM as your wingman? Didn’t think so.)
  • Carol Leifer (SEINFELD) has a memoir – Lessons from a Life in Comedy – coming out April 8th. (The way we hear it, said tome is loaded with life and showbiz lessons. Which should be interesting since the two have absolutely nothing to do with one another. Wait, was that mean? As mean as what I said about His Wonderfulness, George Martin? Cool! Thanks!)
