When I was in college I used to read Dan Savage's sex column because, while not always particularly relevant to my experiences, it was always entertaining. Savage's column, "Savage Love," is wickedly funny, often racy and very honest. Now, HBO may be home to a TV series based on the raunchy column. Here's more:
Quoting from a draft press release for the show, Savage said the possible show "will focus on current events and cultural trends with sex as the filter."
Added Savage: "I'm hoping to bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex — an honest conversation, one that's informed without being (too) wonky, funny without being (too) cruel, sexy without being (too) cheesy."
Sex and the City was a series about a relationship columnist, but as scandalous as some scenes in that show have been, something tells me Savage's show will be a whole other animal. As a fan of his column, I can't wait to see what comes of it.
