SpaceChampion Posted September 23, 2022 Share Posted September 23, 2022 Absolutely nothing happened on cable television today. Rumours otherwise should be ignored, for your own sanity. In other news, Vince Gilligan has a show, starring Rhea Seehorn, for Apple TV+, with a 2 season order. Quote The untitled project, described as a blended, grounded genre drama, has received a two-season straight-to-series order from the streamer. Gilligan will serve as showrunner and executive produce through his High Bridge Productions. Former Sony Pictures TV president Jeff Frost, who oversaw the project prior to recently stepping down from his executive post, will also executive produce, along with Diane Mercer. Jenn Carroll is producing for High Bridge. As Deadline reported exclusively last month, there was a lot of anticipation for Gilligan’s pitch, with at least 8-9 networks and platforms lined up to hear it and read his script. There were multiple rounds of bidding for the project, which I hear was seeking a series order and a budget in the vicinity of $13.5 million-$15 million an episode — on the high end for a premium drama with significant genre elements but not in the jaw-dropping $20M-plus-an-episode range for shows like LOTR: The Rings of Power, House of the Dragon or the now-shelved Demimonde. “After 15 years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes… and who’s more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn? It’s long past time she had her own show, and I feel lucky to get to work on it with her,” said Gilligan. I repeat: Absolutely nothing happened on cable television today.
