The New York Daily News reports that Nerve.com is preparing its brand of literate smut to make the leap into movies and cable television. Founders Rufus Friscom and Genevieve Field are refining their focus to producing stories for Hollywood resale value. They are currently at work developing a nonfiction series with HBO to run after the cable giants popular Sex and the City. In the meantime, Miramaxs Dimension Films has optioned a Nerve.com article about male strippers in Harlem titled Buck Wild. Ross Martin, Nerves vice president of film and TV development, says the company is currently in negotiations for the rights to the novel Sarah by gay teenage sensation J.T. LeRoy, a Nerve.com contributor.
