HBO mulling 'Savage Love' series
Show based on Dan Savage's sex columnCHICAGO -- HBO is considering a show based on "Savage Love," the sex advice column syndicated in alternative weeklies.
In his blog in his home alt-weekly, The Stranger in Seattle, Wash., columnist Dan Savage said he has been working on "a non-airing presentation pilot for HBO" that would be called "Savage Love."
Quoting from a draft press release for the show, Savage said the possible show "will focus on current events and cultural trends with sex as the filter."
Added Savage: "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!"
The first taping is scheduled for this Thursday, he said.
