HBO Viewers To Get More Phallus Than They Could Have Hoped For Head of HBO series production Sue Naegle settled into her new gig quickly this week. It's only Thursday, and she's already given the go-ahead for a new series, the enticingly-titled Hung. The comedy comes to you from the creators of the Eddie Izzard-Minnie Driver vehicle The Riches, Dmitry Lipkin and his wife Collette Burson. Hung is the story of a former high school athlete who learns to use his dangle to improve his quality of life: basically, Hoosiers meets Boogie Nights. A Broadcasting & Cable profile last year of the show's creator described Russian émigré Lipkin as being drawn to "lefty, artsy theory classes" while he was a student at Rutgers, where he learned about the place of the phallus in and out of the classroom. "Think of him like Spider-Man," Lipkin's wife and producing partner Burson told Variety, adding, "He's an average guy who gets in touch with his innate super powers." Lipkin describes the show as a dark comedy with a lot of "heart," a new euphemism for penis we plan to use as frequently as possible. Since Tobey is busy playing a mute who wants to conduct an orchestra in Oscar winner Richard LaGravenese's new movie Quiet Type, who would you cast in this singular role? [Variety]
