Tom Wolfe’s 2004 I Am Charlotte Simmons is being adapted into a series for HBO. Tina Brown, a former editor for Vanity Fair and New Yorker, is working with producer Bill Haber to adapt Wolfe’s novel which is about a North Carolina girl dealing with the trials and tribulations of college. I read an excerpt from the book a few years back and was unimpressed, and I recall the reviews at the time being decidedly mixed. Nevertheless, Hollywood’s been chomping at the bit for a while on this one, and after a movie version failed to find its legs, HBO was all too happy to snatch up the rights.

But still no motherfucking “Deadwood” movies. I hate you, HBO, you cocksuckers.

Wait? This isn't a remake of another show? I'm so confused.
