Univision is developing a spanish speaking adaptation of “Breaking Bad” called METÃSTASIS. Story is very similar to the original and will follow an unassuming chemistry teacher who is given a fatal diagnosis and enters a world of drugs and crime, where he ascends to power. It’s important to note that the main character’s name is no longer Walter White but Walter Blanco. Wonderful.
CBS has ordered RECKLESS to series. The story revolves around a sultry legal show set in Charleston, South Carolina, where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a Southern City Attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal. Dana Stevens wrote the pilot.
USA has picked up SIRENS which follows three of Chicago’s best EMTs whose sometimes silly, self-righteous and even self-destructive personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships and most occupations. Denis Leary and Bob Fisher wrote and executive produced the pilot. USA also picked up PLAYING HOUSE from writers Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham.
Tad Quill has signed an overal deal with CBS TV Studios where he will be a consulting producer on “We Are Men”.
