Forget Kindle, television is the future

Joining the likes of Jonathan Ames, Jennifer Egan, and Michael Chabon, HBO is developing a comedy written by Sam Lipsyte.

I was also very happy to discover recently, that Chris Offutt co-produced and wrote S05 E08 of the Showtime series Weeds, below is the first paragraph of Offutt’s Wikipedia entry, in case you don’t know why I was so happy for him.

Christopher John “Chris” Offutt (born August 24, 1958, Lexington, Kentucky) is an American writer.

The son of author Andrew J. Offutt, Chris Offutt grew up in a small former mining community in the Appalachian foothills of eastern Kentucky. He quit high school to join the army, but failed the physical.[citation needed] He subsequently attended Morehead State University and graduated with a degree in theater and a minor in English. He then hitchhiked around the country, holding more than 50 jobs, all part-time.
