  • CBS has commissioned some new pilots. Demons is about an ex-priest who travels around performing exorcisms. Swingtown is about wife-swapping in the 70s. A third pilot stars Janeane Garofalo as the head of a public defender’s office.
  • Some of the writers of 24 have ghost-written an article on Jack Bauer’s behalf at Esquire, explaining some of his life lessons. They should stick to drama.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
