Comedian Jim Gaffigan is developing a new pilot for CBS based loosely on his life, Deadline reports.
Four years after trying to revive Murphy Brown as a platform to chime in on the heated 2008 Clinton/Obama/McCain presidential campaign, the sitcom's creator, Diane English, is again talking to CBS and Warner Bros. about a series of political-commentary specials with Candice Bergen back in character as the tough-talking TV journalist.
Timing is everything. Which may help explain why, after a nearly three-year delay, BBC America is finally importing the third season (from 2009) of the blistering political satire The Thick of It to its "Ministry of Laughs" weekend franchise (Saturday, midnight/11c) — on the heels of HBO's launch of Veep, which springs from the same demented imagination of dark farceur Armando Iannucci.
Thick set the tone of deeply cynical, bitterly vicious, and scaldingly profane high-office shenanigans that Veep is adapting with some success.
