​Fox & Ridley Scott Team Up For An Ebola-Inspired TV Series

Filed under: TV News

no title

As if everyone isn't panicked enough!

Ridley Scott has signed on to work on a limited Fox TV series, along with Lynda Obst about the Ebola outbreak!

The duo was already working on the series, which is based on Richard Preston's The Hot Zone, and now that it's topical, it's definitely happening.

Scott is only signed on for the first episode, reportedly, but if he's already put over a year's worth of time into it, we're sure he'll stay on.

This whole concept was supposed to be a movie starring Jodie Foster in 1995, but Outbreak was released and the idea was scrapped.

Now, all of the world is listening to things Ebola related. In fact, Preston is writing an article for the New Yorker next week, and to keep the project authentic, some of the report will be used in the show!

Will you be watching???

alexi wasser gets new showtime show based on her blog

Showtime has been going provocative lately, with a bunch of their new shows, including Look and The Big C.

Now, they'll continue that trend with Boycrazy, a half-hour comedy based on the provocative blog by Alexi Wasser.

The show revolves around a girl who looks for love, purpose, and the meaning of life, "one dude at a time," as she "navigates the world of sexuality in the post-modern society of Los Angeles while trying to find real love."

The show will star blogger Alexi Wasser, and it's being co-created by Californication's Daisy Gardner, with Lynda Obst executive producing.

Will U watch Boycrazy when it premieres? Are U enjoying Showtime's roster of provocative new shows?
