The Weekend Read: How Our Minds Got Big Enough to Handle the TV Anthology

21 March 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few years ago, when I was a fledgling screenwriter, I pitched a TV show. It was an idea cooked up with legendary producer Warren Littlefield, so I had the opportunity to tour the networks and cable channels with our project. The show was called Coup. The idea was simple: a young Los Angeles club promoter gets in over his head when he decides to overthrow a foreign country in order to save his mother, who had been captured by that country. Okay, it wasn’t that simple. It was quite complicated, in fact, and I wrote a precise outline that I had memorized and could say in about 8 minutes if my nerves remained steady and I didn’t throw up all over myself. As part of the outline, I had a list of 12 things a person would need in order to overthrow a country, (an army, an inside man, »

Luther And Frankenstein Adaptations Among Fox Pilot Orders

23 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Proving that it learned absolutely nothing from Gracepoint, its failed remake of British mystery series Broadchurch, Fox is moving ahead with a remake of the BBC cop drama Luther, having handed the adaptation a pilot order. Additionally, the network has ordered dramas Frankenstein and Rosewood, and half-hour comedy 48 Hours ‘Til Monday.

The pilot order for Luther is dependent on which actors end up being cast. Idris Elba is (bizarrely) not attached as a star, though he and original series creator Neil Cross are attached as exec-producers (Cross will also pen the script). Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, as well as the BBC’s Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, will also exec-produce.

Luther will again focus on John Luther, a brilliant and tormented detective who gets inside the heads of the monsters he hunts. Whether Fox will botch it as completely as they did Gracepoint remains to be seen, »

If you can’t beat ’em, as the saying goes, join ’em. And while the Sundance Institute won’t be dropping its efforts to foster the best in independent filmmakers anytime soon, the huge migration of indie film talent to TV series led the org to launch its first Episodic Story Lab.

“We’ve been hearing from our theater, feature film and festival alums that it would be great to have a program to support them making the transition from writing feature scripts to multi-episode storytelling,” says Sundance Institute feature film program founding director Michelle Satter.

The idea developed more than two years ago “as an opportunity for us to offer something that wasn’t necessarily being offered out there, as a training ground for our alums and emerging writers.”

Fox Orders "Luther" & "Frankenstein" Remakes

20 January 2015 7:25 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Fox network has ordered four pilots ahead of the new TV season in the Fall, one of which is the U.S. remake of the acclaimed British detective drama "Luther". Also in the works are the drama "Rosewood," a new take on "Frankenstein," and the comedy "48 Hours 'Til Monday".

Of the four new shows, the Americanised "Luther" is the most notable as the original series' creator Neil Cross will write and executive produce while the original show's star Idris Elba will also executive produce. It's a bold choice for Fox considering "Gracepoint," the now cancelled remake of the British murder mystery serial drama "Broadchurch," was one of the biggest disappointments of the current TV season.

The new "Frankenstein" is said to be a "grounded sci-fi drama" about a retired cop brought back from the dead both younger and stronger. This particular series will be handled by Rand Ravich ("Life, »
