Dan Savage, sex guru, could be coming to a television near you.
The Hollywood Reporter says Savage, who writes a sometimes raunchy, sometimes randy, always funny sex advice column that appears in many, many, many alternative weeklies and The A.V. club, is in talks to develop a show based on his column for HBO.
Yay! It’ll be like Deadwood is back, but Al Swearengen is a gay, middle-aged dude who takes on smarmy politicians by google bombing them so they are confused with the um, fluid results of anal sex. I can hardly contain my excitment! Savage is quoted in the article:
“I’m hoping to bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex — an honest conversation, one that’s informed without being (too) wonky, funny without being (too) cruel, sexy without being (too) cheesy. Basically, my sex-advice column — but on the teevee!”
I don’t know if America is ready for Dan Savage’s column on TV. I am, but I’m Canadian and in Canada, our grandmas talk about sex on TV.
Taping for the show begins tomorrow. Eeeeee! Well, I’m excited!
