True Blood Creator Developing New Medical Drama For HBO

You didn't think TV could get any darker after shows like Dexter, True Blood and American Horror Story? Think again!

Alan Ball, creator of one of the most beloved vampire dramas on TV, is set on a new team on a new project for HBO, marking his third collaboration with the network. However, this show will take Alan to depths he hasn't gone before as the project deals with the moral, religious, political and ethical dilemmas facing an abortion doctor.

Wichita will be an hourlong drama that follows the career of the late Dr. George Tiller of Kansas, one of the few doctors who provided late-term abortions in the field and in his time. The doc came under fire for his practices - literally - narrowly escaping one assassination attempt in 1993, but then later meeting his end by anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder in 2009 who shot him in the eye.

Yeesh! A brutal end to a brutal situation.

We'll admit though, the synopsis has piqued our interest. It's definitely going to be one of those shows that has people talking.

    FatBoy turned off the comments on the precious post because some one was sure to bring up Madonna getting booed. Funny how he fails to mention these things.

    One look at that major gayface and I suddenly realize why there is so much gay storyline to that show. It all makes sense now.

    He didn't "create" these characters. He adapted them for TV. They were "created" by Charlaine Harris.

    Re: hoochpit – HOOCHPIT, I dont know if you know it but, I'll ask anyway, You do know you're a closet gay right? All of your comments on every post you bash gays, you know what they say the one that tries sooo hard to deflect it or bash it, is actually the biggest gay out there. I hope you get some counseling you seriously need to come out and stop having sooo much hatred for who you REALLY are.
