When I heard that stunt documentarian Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) and Brokeback Mountain writers Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana were teaming up on a project, like most folks, I assumed it was a documentary about burger-eating gay cowboys. Boy, was I wrong-o on that one.
Executive Producer Spurlock and HBO are working on a Texas political drama series, based on an idea by Spurlock. Not much is known about the new show yet, but based on the director’s recent work, I’m guessing there’s gonna be a lot of product placement for Texaco and maybe propane companies. And who knows? They might throw some burger-eating gay cowboys in there too. It’s hopefully not too late. (Deadline)
