What's Brewin' in TV: George R.R. Martin's Series Finally Comes to Life on HBO and more!

  • FOX is adding another series to it's lineup called "Living With Abandon", an "independently produced single-camera comedy pilot".  The new show, written by Richie Keen and Heath Corson ("Hooked"), and follows members of an abandonment support group left to fend for themselves after their therapist commits suicide.  No word yet on when the show will air.  source
  • Big news for HBO and for me, since I am such a massive fan of the books.  They've ordered a pilot of fanasy project "Game of Thrones", based off George R.R. Martin's incredible series "A Song of Fire & Ice".  (I know this is a TV new blog but I insist you pick up these books, even if fantasy isn't your thing).  David Beioff ("Troy"), D.B. Weiss ("Halo") and Guymon Casady will produce.  No word on air dates but I'll be sure to follow this one closely.  source
  • AMC, y'know, that channel with the super slick ad guys ("Mad Men") has another show in the works and this time they're taking it to court. They have a legal drama, "Rectify", in the works with actor/writer/producer Ray McKinnon ("Deadwood") and it's set to star Walton Goggins ("The Shield")! Yet another show I can't wait to hear more about!  source
  • FOX has cancelled MadTV, the late night sketch comedy show that airs on Saturdays along side SNL.  Co-creator David Salzman says he definitley plans to shop the show out to cable networks.  IMO, that's exactly what this show needs.  It's been lacking something for a long time and maybe a looser leash will help. source
