Holy moly

Hot news from Hollywood today, and we’re part of it!

A blog item from our colleague columnist Molly Eichel sums it up nicely:


“Busted,” the memoir from the Daily News’ own Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman based on their experiences writing the Pulitzer Prize-winning series “Tainted Justice,” has been optioned for a television series from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment with Sarah Jessica Parker attached to star. The show will be co-produced by Anonymous Content, the company behind the much-buzzed about “True Detective.”

“We’re bonkers out of our minds with glee,” Ruderman said.

This is Parker’s first return to television since a stint on “Glee” and her first major role since “Sex and the City.” Producer Carla Hacken had told the duo that SJP finished the book on a plane to the Caribbean with her kids and she cried at the end, adding that she simply had to be a part of this project.
