  • Billy Eichner (BILLY ON THE STREET) has a deal to write an untitled “comedic take on Hollywood and pop culture…as a book for Hachette Book Group. (Hachette, you may recall, is the publishing house that Amazon’s been slugging it out with. Congratulations, Billy, on getting your big writing op with a book that nobody will be able to buy from the world’s largest bookseller. Oh, dear, that didn’t come out quite right, did it?)
  • Dustin Lance Black (MILK) is adapting A. Scott Berg‘s Pulitzer Prize winning bio, Lindberg, into a limited TV series to be produced by Paramount TV.  (Cuz Nazi sympathizing one-shot wonder manly man flyers are the kind of thing the TV audience just loves to eat up. My munched-up self can’t help but think that this ain’t gonna be the hit somebody’s thinking it will. But what do I know?)
  • Cris Cole (UK’s MAD DOGS) has written the pilot for a U.S. version of the series for Amazon Studios. (Cuz why make crappy $$$ writing for the best TV system in the world when you can make slightly less crappy $$$ writing for what yer friendly neighborhood munchman would bet his soul on – if I had one – will end up the worst?)
