The popular alt weekly sex advice columnist, Dan Savage, is working on a potential show for HBO based upon his column. Sounds like it may be Sex in the City for the alternative kids, which is something I could get behind.
“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!,” says Savage.
Taping of the pilot is this Thursday and you can get tickets by clicking here. There’s no information on IMDB, yet, so this may amount to nothing at all. But I happen to find Savage’s sex column (which they run in the Portland Mercury) often funny and educational. It’s hard to take seriously sometimes, but strange sex questions often make me laugh (when they shouldn’t) and Savage usually handles it with intelligence and grace. It’s a rare gift and a necessary one, since kids aren’t getting that advice in school or from trusted adults. [via]
