After producing infinity comedies for his frequent collaborators, Judd Apatow says he's now turning his attention elsewhere. To the stage, in fact. "I have a great idea. Maybe like the best idea I've ever had," he tells GQ. "I miss doing something where I'm interacting more with the audience. I like the idea of writing something and rewriting it every night based on how it's playing." Apatow wouldn't talk about the specifics of the show, but he does say that it's "about victims of the criminal-justice system and the challenges they face," and that he's "excited to write something which has a social conscience." Watch out, Broadway!
