The show, written by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, will star Rodriguez's fiancee, Rose McGowan. She'll play one of five women central to the show. It's rumored to have a 70s exploitation feel, and there's talk of mud wrestling. Alan Ball's Bad Girls most likely takes HBO out of the equation, but I'd certainly prefer Showtime over any of the normal networks, just for the freedom it would provide. The linked article mentions NBC and FX as receiving the spec script. Should it end up at either of those, it will be interesting to see how what looks to be an envelope pushing show plays out under the tighter restrictions.

Despite what Best Week Ever says, Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez is not directing a live-action version of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons. He was, however, shown the script and says he might be interested in it. This is just one of many projects being offered to him, so it remains to be seen if we'll be seeing a Rodriguez-directed film with the likes of George, Jane, Judy, Elroy, Astro, Rosie, Mr. Spacely, Mr. Cogswell and Orbity, the Scrappy-Doo of the Jetson's universe (and I liked both characters, I'm just saying they were polarizing).
