HBO is one step closer to looking like your bookshelf

Posted by Jason Diamond

The title of this post is the answer to the question, “What do Jonathan Franzen, Jennifer Egan, Sam Lipsyte, George R. R. Martin, Jonathan Ames, Michael Chabon, Malcolm Gladwell, and now Karen Russell all have in common?”

From The Hollywood Reporter:

HBO is going to Florida with Scott Rudin.

The premium cable network has picked up Swamplandia, a half-hour comedy project from Rudin based on Karen Russell’s book of the same name.
