Totally Topical Movie About Home Shopping Network In the Works

By  · Published on October 22nd, 2010

If there’s one thing that every single human being on the planet is talking about right now, it’s the Home Shopping Network. They just can’t get enough of the damned thing. All the cubic zirconium and credit card fraud and shiny inhuman smiles. It’s even more popular than Facebook.

This message, of course, is brought to you by the 1980s and Uncle Jasper’s Removable Shoulder Pads For Women.

Universal continues to stay on the cutting edge with a new project about said televised storefront that’s being written/directed/produced by Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2: Hot Flashes writer/director/producer Michael Patrick King. The parts (that haven’t been written yet) were developed specifically for Oprah, Meryl Streep, and Sandra Bullock. Fortunately, they have taken the roles. Unfortunately, Sandra Bullock took Meryl Streep’s role.

Fortunately, Streep is playing Oprah.

In other news, the Home Shopping Network still exists. [Cinema Blend]
