Michael Chabon Got an HBO Show


When he's not writing books about record stores and speaking in depth about rap music, Michael Chabon is successfully pitching HBO shows. The network has picked up Hobgoblin from Chabon and his wife, author Ayelet Waldman, a drama about "a motley group of conmen and magicians who use their skills at deception to battle Hitler and his forces during WWII." Magicians fighting Hitler! Sounds totally great. [Variety]
