Carrie Fisher News

I just found out that Carrie Fisher might be coming to TV.  According to Entertainment Weekly, she's doing a pilot called Wright vs Wrong, alongside Cheryl Hines and Debra Messing.  It sounds like some sort of political satire.  Hines is a liberal pundit, Messing a right-wing one, with Fisher as Hines's manager.  I think that's right.  Anyway, I hope it's good because I love Carrie Fisher (I should have included her in my post about actors who should have their own shows).  I also hope she'll write a few of the scripts if the show takes off.  I suppose, though, it's too much to hope it'll be as sophisticated as Absolute Power, a deadly take on PR which starred Stephen Fry and John Bird.
