Openly gay TV
creator Darren Star (Sex and the City, Melrose
Place
) has signed on as executive producer of
Showtime's Manchild, reports Variety. The show
is a remake of a BBC hit that was often called a
"male Sex and the City," revolving around the
lives of a group of men in their late 40s, dealing
with various midlife crises. "I loved the arena of
40-something guys," Star told Variety. "When
you're a man in your 40s, in some ways it's the best time of
your life. In some cases, your youth may be leaving, but
you're still attractive to women because you have
money." Showtime has yet to green-light a pilot for
the new show, but the hiring of Star and writer
Michael Traeger (Dead Man on Campus) indicates
that the project is moving forward. (Advocate.com)
