TV series adapted from films is a trend almost as big as comic book adaptations at the moment. Today, we’ll have to add another to that list – Fatal Attraction.
Husband and wife duo Andre Jacquemetton and Maria Jacquemetton will write the scripts and executive produce the show together. The pair are best known for penning three episodes for - and serving as producers on - Mad Men season 1.
Their efforts writing on Mad Men season 1 earned them a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Since then, they’ve held several roles on the show such as consulting producer, »
Fox is teaming up with Mad Men writers André Jacquemetton and Maria Jacquemetton to write and executive produce an event series based on the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction. The one-hour series is being developed through Paramount Television, with the Fox Broadcasting Company commissioning the script. Fox's president of entertainment, David Madden, developed the original Fatal Attraction movie while working as a Paramount executive.
No specific plot details were released, but the event series will follow a married man's affair that haunts him in deadly ways. The original thriller, directed by Adrian Lyne, centered on Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas), a wealthy lawyer who has a weekend fling with a publishing executive named Alex Forest (Glenn Close) that leads to the deranged woman stalking his family. The movie spawned the popular term "bunny boiler", after one of the thriller's most memorable scenes where Alex literally boils a rabbit.

"I have always been able to live with ambiguities. I don't really understand a lot of things that regular people understand, that's part of it. So holding those things in my head, (someone might ask), 'Well, which is it?' Why does it have to be one or the other?" This was Matthew Weiner early in his conversation tonight at the New York Public Library with novelist Am Homes, which he had promised would be the only public comments he makes for a very long time about the end of "Mad Men." Those who came to the event (or watched the live-stream) expecting Weiner to run through a point-by-point explanation of the series finale — and particularly of his intentions for the final sequence, which implied that Don Draper had dreamed up the legendary "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" ad — likely came away disappointed. Homes seemed only casually »

“I’m so pleased people enjoyed it and enjoyed it exactly as it was intended,” Weiner said Wednesday night in a Q&A with author A.M. Homes at the New York Public Library. “You can’t get a 100% approval rating or you’ve done something dumb.”
Weiner has said this Q&A session will be his major forum for talking about specifics regarding the finale, which wrapped the AMC drama after seven seasons. During the 85-minute conversation, he offered insight into the development of the show’s storylines over time as well as surprises that came as a result of collaboration in the writers’ room.
Weiner himself is still coming to a deeper understanding of his creation of Don Draper, the deeply conflicted advertising genius at the center of the show. »

"Gravity" producer David Heyman, along with "Mad Men" executive producers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton, continue developing a TV series adapting DC Comics' 'near future' title "Dmz" ("Demilitarized Zone") :
"Dmz" is set in the near future, where a second American civil war has turned the island of Manhattan into a 'Demilitarized Zone', caught between the forces of the government and the secessionist 'Free States of America'.
The "Free States" movement began with an uprising of secessionist groups that formed a separate government in Montana before spreading across the country.
The "Free Armies" and government military first met in combat at Allentown, Pennsylvania where the Free Armies won, then marched into New York. A planned evacuation of Manhattan goes wrong, but despite that, the »

It’s a wonderful time to be a TV-binging comic book fan. In fact, if you were a little tactical about your viewing habits (and not too fussy in your Marvel/DC preference), we’re approaching a state where you could probably fill an ‘all the soap operas’ shaped hole in your schedule every day with the stuff of capes, cowls and crime-fighting.
Of course, we already have Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and – for now – Constantine gracing our schedules. Of those, Arrow, The Flash and The Walking Dead have already been picked up for further seasons, as well. With the exception of Constantine, we wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the rest renewed too.
The fun doesn’t stop there. »
