George Clooney, Hero of Pay Cable

George Clooney is set to put his stamp on premium cable this year with projects in the works on both HBO and Showtime.

Sand and Sorrow, a documentary Clooney narrated and produced about the history of violence in the Darfur region of Sudan, has been bought by HBO and will premiere on the channel in December. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film "follows human rights activist John Prendergast, Harvard University professor Samantha Power, and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof as they travel to refugee camps along the Chad-Sudan border, mass graves inside Darfur itself, and the United States Senate." I was excited to hear about this documentary back in May, and I'm glad it's going to get a wider airing.

Meanwhile, Clooney also is working on a drama pilot for Showtime called "Doubting Thomas," about a family of televangelists. To hear more about that project,

Clooney and his producing partner, Grant Heslov, would oversee the show, which focuses on a televangelist who suffers a stroke and can no longer preach. Variety continues:

His oldest son has recently been embarrassed by a scandal, leaving it to the prodigal youngest son — who has strayed from the family — to return and take over the father's ministry.

Showtime hasn't decided yet whether to pick up the show, but if it gets the OK, it would start filming early next year. Clooney and Heslov previously produced two shows for HBO, "K Street" and "Unscripted," but my favorite Clooney TV project has to be the 2000 remake of "Fail Safe."
