Red Right Hand: YEAH, WHAT I SAID ABOUT HBO...
*He is not a secret agent. Not at all.

 

YEAH, WHAT I SAID ABOUT HBO...

...this makes me reconsider.

This from Mark Steven Johnson, who has long been developing a TV series with HBO based on Garth Ennis's ridiculously awesome, creeptastic, and profane comic series Preacher.
“We were budgeting and everything and it was getting really close to going, but the new head of HBO felt it was just too dark and too violent and too controversial."
Because, yes, the way to get some of the old cache back is to completely NOT do anything that pushes the envelope and to NOT take advantage of pay cable's unique position to not have to adhere to conventional standards and practices in anyway.

This concludes today's armchair-network-presidenting.
