REPORT: Keith Olbermann To Become Comedy Writer?
11:42 am, January 23rd, 2011
Keith Olbermann is out of MSNBC, but is he out of cable TV entirely?
Aaron Sorkin, who has penned numerous TV shows and films, including The Social Network, has been working on a pilot for some time now about a cable news show, and he could be reaching out to Olbermann for help with rants.
In addition to doing some homework by following Chris Matthews and checking out Fox News, Sorkin spent time on Olbermann’s set, reports EW, which describes the pilot – likely to land at HBO – as “Sports Night meets Countdown.”
Would you watch a series like that? And what do you think about Olbermann’s abrupt departure?
