Michael and Ayelet's Hobgoblin
This just in: The Hollywood Reporter is, uh, reporting that Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon and his wife, novelist Ayelet Waldman, will be penning (and exec-producing) a new television series for HBO. Currently entitled Hobgoblin, the series is about a group of con men and magicians who use their unique skills to battle Hitler and the Nazi's. Right now the show is being developed, but doesn't appear to have been picked up yet.
My one concern is that we don't "lose" this talented literary novelist to Hollywood. Please don't forget your roots, Michael.
And for those of you who are speculating that I posted this news merely for an excuse to feature a huge photo of the dreamy-even-when-scruffy Chabon... No comment.
