Morgan/Wong TV series news


Recommended Posts

OK, I was reading the futon critic when I read this:

DEN OF THIEVES (NBC, New!)/THE HOBBY (Showtime, New!) - Glen Morgan and James Wong ("Final Destination") have pacted with Neal Moritz and Marty Adelstein's Original Television for two new drama projects. The first, "The Hobby," is for Showtime and takes place in the world of high-end prostitution. The series will track the relationship between four johns or "hobbyists" and four hookers or "providers," with one madam at the center. The other, "Den of Thieves," is at NBC. "Den" follows one giant "Italian Job"-esque heist over the course of a season (a la "24") with various mini-heists taking place in every episode.

The story, which is based on a feature script by Christian Gudegast and Paul Scheuring, will be told from the point of view of the criminals with the show set in Los Angeles. "Den" has a premium script commitment at the Pea**** including a mid-six-figure penalty should it not go to pilot. Both hours are being produced by 20th Century Television-based Original, with Benderspink and New Line on board as producers on the Pea**** project. Morgan or Wong will write and executive produce both projects and will likely direct one or both if greenlit. In addition to Mortiz and Adelstein, Original president Dawn Parouse will also serve as executive producer of both shows with Benderspink's Chris Bander and J.C. Spink also executive producing "Den."

I found it here:  


I wish Morgan and Wong was doing a sci-fi or horror series, but hopefully one of the above will become a series (or have the pilots be seen).

Be Seeing You,

YAY for M&W getting work!

The Showtime things sounds exciting, as they're more edgy and more daring things are more likely to make it there.  However, as far as the NBC thing goes -- euurrgghh.  We saw how that turned out last time.  I hope it's not another "The Others".  I hope it's even better and lasts longer.
