Brokeback Mountain Writers Working With Morgan Spurlock on HBO Drama

Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain writers Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana are teaming up with Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock to create an HBO series. The project is described as "a big-canvas Texas political drama." McMurtry and Ossana are writing a script based on Spurlock's idea, and they'll all executive produce. A love story between McDonalds-addicted obese male politicians, perhaps? We'd watch. [Deadline]
