HBO Likes Hustlers, Fat Girl, and Kanye

After a Summer with no original series, HBO sure seems to be stepping up its TV development these days. The latest news:

  • HBO's alliance with Mark Wahlberg's production company has worked out well so far (Entourage, In Treatment), so why not try again? The latest is a comedy pilot called How to Make It in America. The Hollywood Reporter describes the potential series as revolving around "three enterprising downtown twentysomethings who hustle their way through New York City determined to achieve the American dream."
  • Liza Palmer's novel Conversations with the Fat Girl is also in the pipeline to be developed as a potential series. According to Variety, a Rome producer discovered the book at a West Hollywood book fair and decided to option it. The book focuses on an overweight coffee shop barista named Maggie, who starts to feel lonely when her best friend, Olivia, gets gastric bypass surgery and starts a new life as a thin girl.

To see what HBO might want with Kanye West, just


  • According to Entertainment Weekly, HBO is also searching for a way to work with Kanye by any means necessary. A Curb Your Enthusiasm producer was involved at one point, and now the network is reportedly looking for the right writer who can suss out "how to capture Kanye in the right way." Well, Kanye's recent antics could make for good television, that's for sure.

Any of these projects sound interesting to you?

I thought Kanye was going to produce (something like that, lol) a series where he would not be in front of the camera. What happened with that? I'll still watch his show tho, lol.

I used to LOVE HBO, then they kept cancelling their good shows, like Deadwood, Rome, Carnivale. I hope they can get some new good stuff. I'll pass on a Kanye show. I wish they'd do more period stuff like the shows I mentioned already. I loved those so much!
