THE BIGGEST NEWS

... A&E; has renewed The Glades, TV's highest-profile show that I know nothing about, for a third season. Is it about air fresheners or something? [Deadline Hollywood]

... As usual, Hollywood's TV executives are keeping their fingers on the pulse of pop culture, predicting trends before they happen. This next hot new item: zombies! Wait, what? Zombies are already a hit? Well that won't stop Fox from putting an adaptation of the 2009 movie Zombieland into development. The movie was a light-hearted take on a zombie apocalypse that was originally pitched as a television show. Next on Fox's list: a dramedy about a chemistry teacher who sells crank after learning he has a lethal case of Rickets. [Vulture]

... The very funny and very unlucky Judy Greer is testing the sitcom pilot waters once again, working with ABC on a single-camera story based on her own life. Greer moved away from Los Angeles for a man and raised stepchildren in the suburbs. Yup, another out of the city and into the 'burbs show. [Deadline Hollywood]

... The CW has bought a project from the writer of Easy A about a deadly game of Truth or Dare! Bert V. Royal's story follows half a dozen kids, excuse me, "young adults," who Truth and Dare each other to the extreme max! [Deadline Hollywood]

... Spike TV has renewed 1000 Ways to Die for a fourth season. With 54 episodes in the can and an average of 6.5 deaths per episode (give or take a beheading), that's 54 x 6.5 which equals... ummm, not quite 1000 deaths. Which means its time to down a bottle of Jaegermeister, head to your local fireworks factory or electric eel farm, and help this show achieve its goal! [Deadline Hollywood]

... NBC has bought two new comedy projects: Life As I Blow It follows a Midwestern woman and her weird friends and family, and Satellites actually sounds good. It's set at a satellite radio station where a dude and a chick run a relationship call-in show while surrounded by lots of other niche stations and their wacky hosts. Culture clash! [Deadline Hollywood]

... Rob Corddry's much talked-about pilot Little in Common is not going anywhere at Fox after more than a year of development and plenty of chatter that it would make it to air. It was about several families involved in a local Little League team and was set to star Heather Graham, Kevin Hart, and Corddry. [Deadline Hollywood]
