Development Dealings

jclynch.jpgJust a few tidbits for the week:

  • Variety says that ABC has picked up an unscripted series called "Life of Leisure." I read it would be similar to "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which seems like some very big shoes to fill. Then I also read that the main character is a depressed 20-something guy who decides to move into his parents' retirement community. It sounds kind of funny, but have the producers ever seen "Curb Your Enthusiasm?" The shows sound nothing alike. I guess it has the same "feel" since "Leisure" relies mostly on improv.

  • NBC has picked up the pilot "Kidnapped." Zap2it says it's sort of like "24," following one plot over an entire season. Up for the first ransom is a wealthy New York family's teenage son. The project is from Jason Smilovic and Michael Dinner, with Sony TV, 25C Productions and NBC Universal Television.

  • You can never have too many lawyers, right? Maybe that's why Fox has ordered another Jerry Bruckheimer drama, "American Crime." Defamer.com says the show focuses on LA's high-powered celebrity lawyers. John Carroll Lynch was scheduled to star, but he is currently on another legal drama, CBS' "Close to Home."

  • DAG is back! Well, maybe. Broadcasting & Cable says that David Alan Grier might be the next one in line for a talk show shot. A male host? I am hoping for the next Merv. It would be a huge bonus if he has his boobs felt up and gives away cars too.

  • In an effort to push more music out of their lineup, MTV is adding another reality show. The Futon Critic says that "Cheerleader" follows a year in the life of a competitive squad based in Kentucky. Laurie Girion, who was behind the TLC reality show, is helming the project. -- Rachel Cericola
