You’ve gotta love Hollywood. Not only did we learn that a new Anne of Green Gables television series may be in the works today, but we also just read that Showtime has picked up a show called Masters of Sex starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
According to CBC News, a 13-episode modern-day take on L. M. Montgomery’s beloved Anne of Green Gables was announced at a media festival in Banff, Alberta, this weekend. Think anything can improve on the Megan Follows series? And what’s your first reaction to the idea of a modern-day take on the story?
Meanwhile, Deadline.com reports that Showtime’s Masters of Sex, about “real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson” will debut in 2013 with 12 episodes, going on to say that the show “chronicles the unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson.” Personally, I’ll be in for at least one episode, ’cause I’ve always liked Lizzy Caplan’s work. How about you?
