Dramatic series Sellevision to take us behind-the-scenes of a home shopping network

SelleVisionSo first I see the headline that NBC is developing SelleVision, a home-shopping comedy. I immediately thought of how well tapping into payday loans worked for The CW last year. I guess I associate the people who shop on those home-shopping networks as the same people who get payday loans? Not fair, I know but what can you do.

I don't think we've had a home-shopping network-based scripted show (of that, I'm probably wrong). At the least, it's unique. Then I saw that Bryan Singer was directing. Okay, interesting. Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) is set to write? Sold!

The series, based on the book of the same name, was originally optioned for film, but now is being expanded for television. The bottom line is that the book is bizarre and funny; it features alcohol and drug abuse, marital affairs and other twisted things among its mostly female cast. Fuller excels at weird hour-long comedy-dramas, and this material sounds like a perfect fit for him.

Eddie Murphy played G, a guru type, on the movie Holy Man, the only show (movie) I can think of that featured a home shopping network.

I think this is more of a comedy, but that's just based on the book.
