Sex-swapping headed to Fox

Kevin Falls' time away from television didn't last long. After seeing his time-jumping drama Journeyman sputter after 13 episodes on NBC, Falls is back in the biz.

Fox likes what it saw from Falls' adaptation of the Argentine soapy miniseries Lalola and has ordered a pilot of the hour-long show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tentatively titled Eva Adams, the program's premise will be familiar to anyone who has seen the mediocre 1991 comedy Switch. A sexist pig working at a sports management firm gets turned into a woman by a witch. He's supposed to learn a lesson about how women are treated, but will probably just make a ton of jokes about how cool it is to have boobs.

In other biz news, Bill Martin and Mike Schiff (Cavemen) have been attached to the CBS comedy We Need Girlfriends as showrunners. The show, based on a series of YouTube videos (seriously?), follows three chums who were recently dumped by their better halves.

Also, Bob DeLaurentis (The O.C.) and Noah Hawley have been pegged as showrunners for The Unusuals, which Hawley created.

Saw the original and it was great. its sad because most of the viewers wont see how good the original cast was (Carla Peterson is truly a great actress) I'm guessing this will get butchered. For those that know spanish I also recommend Los exitosos Pells another great Argentinean tv series.

Why is it that everything comes back to sex and then strange sex?
Even Grey's anatomy has become so incestuous that I'm getting ready to drop it. Another sex change character shoved down my throat. I really liked Journeyman and mourned it's loss. I would have expected a better followup from its creator.

Oh no, here in Chile that thing was adapted and it's horrible. I hope it doesn't make the cut.

The argentinian show is ok, nothing special, although it was a big hit.

Just read about this and was coming over here to submit it but I was obviously to slow :P. The shows sound somewhat decent, I won't dismiss them yet.
