Starz Eyes 'Insatiable'

InsatiableLeave it to a premium cable network like Starz to figure out a way to combine The Food Network with Cinemax. They will be producing a series based on former New York magazine writer Gael Greene's 2006 memoir of her time as a food critic.

Greene has most recently been seen on television as a judge for 'Top Chef Masters' on Bravo. She's been writing about food for over 40 years.

But don't let her career as a writer fool you into thinking of this as another cookbook. She slept with porn stars, famous chefs and the Studio 54 set (including a tryst with the King of Rock and Roll). In other words, it's perfect fodder for one of those cable adult dramas that creep into the softcore porn territory (and can use the analogy of eating as sex).

Starz itself is becoming a player in the game with the success of its 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' series. It looks like the network seeks to continue the streak.

For a second I thought this was going to be based on Marilyn Chamber's film Insatiable.

I'm not sure I would call Spartacus softcore porn. It has as much as you would see in any R-rated movie and nothing different than you might see on HBO or Showtime. Just because the series shows genitalia -- even fake genitalia -- it does not necessary mean you're watching porn. It means you're watching something meant for adults, which again is not necessarily porn.
