This pilot for a Fox television series, based on the novel by Scott Turow, was tragically not selected for production. Bastards.

Scott Turow on Bill Maher Show

Post by grannybear » Sat May 29, 2010 11:34 am

Scott Turow was on Bill Mahers show last night and when they were discussing his new book I was hoping they would say something about Pleading Guilty. Maybe mention why it wasn't picked up. But the panel, Cornel West, Jonathan Alter and Patrick Ruffin got into a heated discussion and poor Scott couldn't get a word in edgewise. I guess we'll never know and I'd really like to know.

I think we tried to ask Hart Hanson, but he never replied, just saying
that it's a tough world of TV, or something like that...

By the way, Scott Turow left a very good impression. He spoke very sensibly so everyone could understand him and he had a real nice sense of humor.
I'll have to go out now and buy his new book.

I love me some Bill. He can get a little carried away with his anti-religious stuff and raving on about corn syrup, but in general? Way sensible dude.
And Scott Turow impressed me as the same--good-humored, intelligent, willing to roll with the punches.
