"113.4 Grams and a Gramp"

It takes something special to get me blogging again – something truly cringe-evoking and pun-worthy at the same time. And this is it:

The creator of “Nip/Tuck” is working on a new show for the FX channel “about a father and husband who chooses to have a sex change operation” and its title is “4 oz.”

Why “4 oz.”??? Maybe FX considered the title “4 in.” to be inappropriate (which would be the first time they found anything inappropriate) or maybe McDonald’s wouldn’t let them use “Quarter Pounder” (not even “Royale with Cheese”?). We just hope this show doesn’t turn out to be “Hedwig and the Angry Ounce”.

Also interesting: this show was previously announced as ‘under development with a pilot pending’ last September, so all that’s been done since is getting the OK to write scripts for three more episodes? Four score in seven years is not so hot. Four ounces in eleven months, even worse.

And did ya notice the big name attached to this show as Producer? Brad Pitt. Wouldn’t George Clooney let him use the title “Ocean’s 4”? Or maybe this project tells you more about Brad’s relationship with Angelina Jolie than you want to know.

Am I the only one who is reminded of the origin of the pop group name “10cc”?

Okay, you can stop cringing.
