  • Jamie Denbo (RONNA & BEVERLY) & Kerri Kenney-Silver (RENO 911) are writing the pilot for IFC’s comedy, RABBIT HOLE, about all the yuks to be had while working in “Nevada’s ‘second most famous’ brother.” (Yer friendly neighborhood munchman loves a good whorehouse show as much as the next degenerate, but I’m a tad worried about how “good” this will be with Chelsea Handler producing. What do you think?)
  • Dennis Lehane (SHUTTER ISLAND) and Tom Bernardo (newbie? let me know) are working with some old dood name of Martin Scorsese developing a weird series for HBO to be called ASHECLIFF, about the life and times of and in the mental hospital setting of the SHUTTER ISLAND feature film. (Which means that I know I’m gonna love this one cuz…fucking shutter fucking island, peeps!)
  • Glen Mazzara (THE WALKING DEAD) is bringing DAMIEN, all about that nasty little devil chile we know so well from the feature film OMEN to Lifetime. (And I’m feeling pretty sanguine about this baby too cuz…no Chelsea Handler, or for that matter, Robert Kirkwood to get in Glen’s way this time around. Hi, Glen! Hire me! Please?)
  • Jennifer Cecil (PRIVATE PRACTICE) is writing a “family dramedy” for NBC to be called A TO Z. (Which worries the munchy one cuz has there ever been a more bland title? Here’s hoping the show has a little more to it. )

That’s it for now. Write in and tell munchilito what you’ve sold today. TVWriter™ can’t wait to brag to all your friends. (And, more importantly, enemies. Hehehe….)
