Bob Morris, who you might remember as the refreshingly cranky author of the NYT Sunday Styles "Age of Dissonance" column, might be getting a show on HBO. Well, it's a "script deal," and you know how that goes. Classic Morris topics involve voting against children at dinner parties and the perils of small talk in rarefied Manhattan circles ("I blushed. Did I just insult a broadcast icon I should have known? Or did she answer my question in the most literal way possible?") The show will be more of the same, a comedy of manners! He told WWD it would be "about a man who is obsessed with manners and actually doesn't know how to treat people very well. That is me." [WWD]
