Red Right Hand: DRUGS OF CHOICE

DRUGS OF CHOICE

"Juice" is getting canned. This last season of Rescue Me hit a lot of the same beats. Already into the second act of a new Rescue Me spec ("Eightball").

And now, about two and half years into Sorkinwithdrawl, comes this sign of hope. Sayeth Variety...


Warner Bros. TV is pulling out its big guns, lining up network offers for new projects from "Friends" co-creator David Crane and "The West Wing" team of Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme.

Blah blah blah blah.

Sorkin is expected to personally deliver the script for his project to networks as early as Friday. A WBTV rep wouldn't comment, but two industry insiders said it's believed Sorkin is focusing his firepower on showbiz, with a behind-the-scenes show set at a "Saturday Night Live"-style skein.

Indeed, two years ago, Sorkin told Charlie Rose that was his plan.

"I hope it's going to be what 'Larry Sanders' did with ... talkshows. I would like to do that with latenight sketch comedy -- with 'Saturday Night Live': in other words, behind the scenes at a network latenight sketch-comedy, edgy show."



Still waiting for his The Farnsworth Invention.

In other concerns, Serenity kicked some mighty space ass. And for the Firefly faithful, slightly disappointed we didn't get a clarification on what Inara was preparing to shoot up in "Bushwacked" (listen to the DVDcommentary).

And Scrye #89 is out. I don't even know what I have in it, but I got paid, so I don't care either.

Now somebody get me some Red Fusion!!!
