'24' producer sells drama script to FX
Braga credits include 'Terra Nova,' 'FlashForward'
By ANDREW WALLENSTEIN

Broadcast drama vet Brannon Braga is ready to try his hand at cable.
The writer-producer behind hits including "24" has sold FX a script
for drama series "Malice," a psychosexual paranormal thriller that
redefines the events of the Salem Witch trials.

Braga wrote "Malice" with Adam Simon ("The Haunting in Connecticut").
They are exec producers with Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry of Prospect
Park. "Malice" comes from Fox 21, 20th Century Fox's cable and
alternative production unit.

Braga is coming off one season as a showrunner overseeing Fox's "Terra
Nova." Other credits include ABC's "FlashForward," CBS' "Threshold"
and three different iterations of the "Star Trek" franchise.

Prospect Park has plenty of business with FX. In addition to comedy
"Wilfred," which recently began its second season on the cabler, the
shingle has several projects in development at FX including "Eye for
an Eye," a drama series with Ice Cube attached potentially to star and
produce, and "GILF," a comedy from "Wilfred" star and co-creator Jason
Gann.

Judging from the content of "Malice," "American Horror Story" may have
whetted FX's appetite for more of the weird and wild. The horror
anthology series, which has been renewed for a second season, came
from 20th TV and "Glee" creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Showtime & ‘Hung’ Co-Creators Developing Supernatural Series
By DOMINIC PATTEN

EXCLUSIVE: Showtime is developing a new series from Hung co-creators
Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson. Called Sleep No More, the Fox
21-produced supernatural thriller tells the tale of a town where the
dead keep returning to life. Lipkin and Burson were the creators of
The Riches and co-creators of HBO’s now cancelled moonlighting male
prostitute series Hung. The husband-and-wife team will serve as
executive producers and writers. This is the first project from the
duo in their recent two-year deal with Fox’s cable and reality TV
division. Fox 21 produces FX’s Sons Of Anarchy and Showtime’s Homeland
and recently announced a two-year pod deal with Oscar-winning
screenwriter Stephen Gaghan. Lipkin is repped by CAA. Burson is repped
by UTA.

Because there was no other way to make a worse show than Anger
Management.

Oh come on.  Three and a Half Men was worse than Anger Management.

I think you meant "One and a Half Men and a Rageaholic".

Heehee.  Actually I meant Two and a Half Men, though your title is more
accurate if we're talking about the actors, from what I hear.
