"Dirty Sexy Money": Meet The Darlings
"Brothers & Sisters" showrunner Greg Berlanti and "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer are developing a new drama pilot for ABC entitled "Dirty Sexy Money" described by Hollywood press as "Dynasty" meets "Six Feet Under".
"Dirty," also known as "The Darlings," comes from "Six Feet Under" writer Craig Wright.
The drama pilot centers on Nick George, an idealistic lawyer who inherits the job of tending to the legal (and sometimes illegal) needs of one of the wealthiest, most colorful families in New York, the Darlings after his father's unexpected death.
Singer is also executive producing and directing another ABC/Touchstone pilot, "Football Wives," through the feature helmer's deal with the network.
Recently, Berlanti (who along with Synger is one of many openly gay people working in Hollywood today) said to gay entertainment blog After Elton:
"There's a character of a senator in 'Dirty Sexy Money' who's in love with a transvestite. So that's definitely got an interesting character. And I do think if one were to look at the TV landscape now that transgender characters are sort of where gay characters were 20 or 30 years ago. So I do think that's an area that 'Dirty Sexy Money' will explore".
The producers have thus far cast Donald Sutherland (Commander In Chief), William Baldwin (Waterfront), Peter Krause (Six Feet Under), Seth Gabel (Nip/Tuck, pictured above) and Samaire Armstrong (The O.C.) in the key roles.
