Fox Presents: Bocaccio's Decalogue

Now! From television's acknowledged experts in adultery, profanity, lying, and covetousness!

According to Variety, FX SVP Gerard Bocaccio dreamed up the concept for 'The Ten Commandments,' a series of 10 one-hour TV movies which will "explore the spiritual and moral issues faced by modern America."

Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney's Section Eight will exec produce, and the two will be joined by eight other "A-list directors [sic, Clooney's A-list? how about 'up-and-coming'? Seriously, people]," and each will tackle a commandment.

I wonder who gets "Thou shalt not steal?"

Read like a million posts about Kieslowski's Decalogue, a ten-hour made-for-TV exploration of the spiritual and moral issues faced by modern America Poland.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
