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

  • Kevin Costello (UP IN THE AIR) is writing a Fox drama pilot about an airline flight crew who pull big heists in various layover cities as a sideline.  (Here’s hoping there’s a bit more to this than the description. Although yer munchero finds it fascinating that the usually ultra-conservative TV nets are into such heavy, Bonnie and Clyde style anti-dis-establishmentarianism. Hey, did I spell that word right? I know I probably used it wrong.)
  • Betsy Thomas (WHITNEY) is the new showrunner of NBC’s BAD JUDGE. (Give her a call! Take her to lunch! Promise a kickback from your salary. Maybe – if she doesn’t call the cops on you – you’ll end up with a gig. Stranger things have happened, right?)
  • David G.B. Brown (THE SCARECROW AND MRS. KING) died September 6th at 67. (No snark or jokes here, just TVWriter™’s condolences to his family and friends. Good writer!)
  • Lee Maddux (NIGHT COURT) died September 9th at 84. (No snark here either, although funny man that he was, Mr. Maddux might appreciate a few jokes. If only the munchy dude was funny enough to do him justice. Condolences to Mr. M’s family and friends.)

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….)
