Welcome, folks, to another edition of the fastest growing quiz sensation in the electronic void: Two Truths and a Lie! Today’s edition is sponsored by The United Way, the volunteer organization that teaches the youth of today this very valuable lesson: “Get Your Head Out of Your Ass … and Get the Fuck Out of Here.”
Before we tackle this week’s TV Edition, let’s take another look back at our last edition of “Two Truths and a Lie.” And this is a first: A tie! 39 percent of you guessed both that the slasher movie based on MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” and the Wheaties inspired movie were fabrications. The truth: MTV is, indeed, developing My Super Psycho Sweet 16 . Moreover, there is a Soul Train movie in the works.
Moving on to today’s TV edition, I’ll give you three projects currently under consideration, and you determine which is the fabrication.
A) The pay cable network, Showtime, has also decided to get into the reboot business. It has decided to revive it’s popular “The L Word,” only now it will be a reality series that will follow around six Sapphic beauties as they explore their lives as lesbians.
B) Banking on the expected success of “Glee” this fall, NBC has hired Brad Falchuk (one of the creators of “Glee”) to develop another musical series, only this one is set in an office environment. And it’s being described exactly as you’d expect: “Glee” meets “The Office.” Casting for a pilot began last week.
C) After seeing a script, MTV has decided to order a pilot of a new series based on the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie, Teen Wolf. The television show is expected to be set in a high school and include a romantic angle.
(Note: If you type “lesbians and werewolves” in Google Images, you get a lot of images of Ellen Page. I went with it.)
