Novelist Trio to Develop TV Projects with Tpg-Backed Slingshot Global Media

3 September 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a deal that reflects several trends in TV production, three rising novelists have inked a first-look development pact with Slingshot Global Media, the banner backed by private equity giant Tpg.

Scribes Brian McGreevy, Lee Shipman and Philipp Meyer have formed El Jefe, a production company that aims to develop TV projects with the goal of helping novelists make the transition to writing for TV.

This is seen as fertile ground for finding fresh TV voices, on the heels of Nic Pizzolatto scoring a hit with HBO’s “True Detective” and “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn teaming with David Fincher for another HBO series, “Utopia.” Other examples of novelists scoring on the small screen in recent years include Noah Hawley, shepherd of FX’s “Fargo,” and Elwood Reid, exec producer of FX’s “The Bridge.”

Los Angeles-based El Jefe has optioned two books to develop into series, Meyer’s “American Rust, »

El Jefe has already optioned two major novels under the deal: American Rust, Meyer’s debut that centres on a troubled Pennsylvania police chief, and Vanished, Wil S Hylton’s tale of the 60-year search for Us bombers who went missing in WWII.

Exclusive: Famke Janssen Talks the Return of Hemlock Grove

11 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Don’t you worry about Famke Janssen’s powerful, sexy Olivia Godfrey. Though things looked shaky for her at the close of Season One of the Netflix original horror hit "hemlock Grove," Famke told us, "Olivia typically finds her way out of any peril. She is unstoppable."

Just in case you’ve never visited “Hemlock Grove,” it’s a fictional town in Pennsylvania peopled with werewolves, monsters and creatures of all sorts. In Season One, Roman Godfrey, heir to the town’s wealthy Godfrey family fortune, befriended the town’s newest resident, Peter Rumancek.

But things weren’t so “friendly.” A spate of brutal murders in the town stirred up speculation and rumors, and it turned out both young men were hiding their own dark secrets.

Stirring up trouble, quite often, is the family’s malevolent matriarch, Olivia. One of Olivia’s favorite playthings is Norman Godfrey (Dougray Scott), her dead husband’s brother. »

AMC Is Adapting The Son As A Drama Series

5 June 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline reports that AMC is in the midst of turning The Son, a bestselling 2013 novel by Philipp Meyer (above), into a drama series. Meyer is executive-producing alongside Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, who developed Netflix’s horror series Hemlock Grove based on McGreevy’s novel, and Michael Connolly, an executive-producer on Hemlock Grove.

Originally eyed as an event series, The Son is being planned as a multi-season drama series by AMC. It’s described as a “multi-generational epic telling the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas oil empire.”

Though it may not seem like it, this is a crucially important time for AMC. Its flagship show Breaking Bad, one of the most widely acclaimed dramas of all time, recently finished its swan song, and period drama Mad Men is on its way out with the second half of its final season coming next year. »
