Turning Twitter feeds into TV shows is so last week.
Continuing the trend of mining the Internet for TV ideas, ABC and Sony Pictures are developing a sitcom based on the website and book Awkward Family Photos, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Contractually, the show will work primarily from the book — which was spawned from the site and contains the same content — but it is unclear how the concept will translate into a series.
CBS has already launched $#*! My Dad Says, based on the popular Twitter feed, and last week ...
Executive producer and showrunner Chris Mundy is leaving the Criminal Minds spin-off and will be replaced by Edward Allen Bernero, who runs the original series, a source tells TVGuide.com.

It's the second season of Lawman (Wednesday, 10/9c, A&E), and Steven Seagal is still out for justice. As a bona fide sheriff's deputy in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, the action-film icon serves, protects and, when needed, kicks a little butt.

FX's motorcycle-club drama and HBO's late, great Western have more than a badass ambiance in common: No fewer than four Deadwood survivors have ridden again on SOA this season. Paula Malcomson (Old West hooker Trixie) is bringing her authentic Belfast brogue to the role of an Irish mother who tries to help Katey Sagal's Gemma rescue her abducted grandson, Abel. We only wish her ex-HBO costar ....
Law & Order: Los Angeles
After spending the summer playing Nelson Mandela for the upcoming film Winnie, Terrence Howard just couldn't let go of the South African president-activist so easily. So he found a way to bring Mandela to his newest role, Deputy District Attorney Jonah "Joe" Dekker on Law & Order: Los Angeles.
"The most important part of him was his legal appetite and his appetite for moral rightness. When we finished the movie, I wasn't finished being a lawyer," Howard told reporters on a conference call Tuesday.
Law & Order: Los Angeles' Terrence Howard says character is show's "moral compass"

Sara Ramirez (Grey's Anatomy), Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee), David Caruso (CSI: Miami)
Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com.
Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija
ADAM: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."
I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been MIA for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least recurring)? Why is Mike Chang not a regular? He appears on the show more than Terri does! — Christine
MICKEY: These designations are complicated and take into account the plan for the entire season. So while Mike's fling with Tina is at the fore now, I'm hearing that Terri will play a much larger role in later episodes. As she made clear in the Britney episode, she's not giving up on Will, and her presence will be similarly menacing when she returns...
