Thank You For Tuning In

According to Film Junk, Thank You For Smoking is to be adapted into a TV show for NBC. The film will be based upon the original Christopher Buckley novel, not the Jason Reitman film - all the better to mix things up a little, I imagine - but will still, apparently, only pick up the story where the film left off. A sequel to the novel then, more or less, realised as a single-camera sitcom (think The Larry Sanders Show, Malcolm in the Middle or rather than My Name is EarlWill and Grace, Cheers or Everybody Loves Raymond.)

No news on casting, but the writer/producer is reportedly Rick Cleveland of Six Feet Under.
