HBO gets well-endowed with Hung

Colette BursonIt seems that everything comes to HBO eventually, and now they're proving once and for all that size really does matter.

In development is Hung, a series revolving around a well-endowed guy who figures out a way to use his sizable assets. A former high school sports legend, now he's slogging through middle age as a dad and high school basketball coach. Things start looking, uh, up when he creates a scheme to add some zest into his life.

Although further details are sketchy at this point, I keep thinking about Weeds, only in this case, maybe it's about a dad who ventures into adult-oriented territory to keep food on the table and pay the bills. Anyone have further intel? It's HBO, so anything is possible.

It's the first project for new HBO Entertainment president Sue Naegle, who's developing the dark comedy with husband-and-wife writing team Colette Burson (pictured) and Dmitry Lipkin (creator of The Riches), as well as Blueprint Entertainment's Michael Rosenberg.

In a Variety story, Lipkin and Burson said they're having fun with the concept. "Think of him like Spider-Man," Burson said. "He's an average guy who gets in touch with his innate super powers."

Both writers say they're happy to helm the first development project under Naegle's new regime. "It does feel like HBO has been invigorated as a place to go for creative talent," said Burson.

Softcore porn on a premium station will not sell subscriptions when real porn is so readily available. Give it up already. How about some freakin QUALITY! instead of the sex gimick of the month.

I had to check to make sure it still wasn't April 1st. Now I'm trying to figure out if this series idea is pure genius, or the rubbish it appears to be.
