Chew: The Television Show

Showtime is adapting John Layman and Rob Guillory's book Chew for the small screen.  With such shows as Dexter and Californication under their belt, I believe this is the perfect home a story that has to combine dark humor with a bit of off-kilter violence.  And apparently Californication's Stephen Hopkins will be a director and executive producer, with a script written by Terri Hughes Burton and Eureka's Rob Mibauer.  All of this sounds promising.  My only worry is the 30 minute time frame they are going to use for each episode.  I'm sure it can work, but I'd love a full hour.

I also want want Ken Leung as Tony Chu and John Goodman as Mason Savoy.  Please make this happen.
