Women on the Verge of a Bad TV Show?

25 April 2009 9:19 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Have you heard the news that Pedro Almodóvar's comedic 1988 classic Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, the film that first won him a major following in the Us and his first trip to the Oscars, is going to become an English language TV series for Fox?

Pass the gazpacho!

When I read the headlines I felt like I had downed a pitcher of glee. Smashing news, especially since Almodóvar himself is producing. But ... then I read the fine print. There's always fine print.

Apparently it's Not a comedy but a "suburban drama" (huh?) And it's about women who've known each other a long time (what? no complex comedic interweaving of strangers?) And it's being written by a Grey's Anatomy writer? (oy!) This doesn't sound anything like the movie and it sounds way too much like a soapy redux of Desperate Housewives. Next thing you know we'll be »
