Plame On!

COOL TV STUFF. While the ravening Democrat hordes have been hunting down Karl Rove, news from the entertainment arena has been building to a climax. We are pleased to announce -- courtesy of Rita Cosby, late of the Fox News Channel -- that Valerie Plame will be starring in an NBC television series based on her own exploits as an undercover CIA agent. Rita, in her new capacity as anchorman of the Big Girl News Network (BGNN) has learned that the former spy is about to begin filming episodes for "Valerie Flame, DC Undercover," which will debut on the fall schedule opposite Fox's "24." NBC producer Mary Mapes says of the new series:

"Its advantage over "24" is that it's real. R-E-A-L. Life as a spy in the most dangerous city in the world. James Bond may jet off to Rangoon and Pnom Penh, but Val has had to fight for her life on a daily basis in Washington, DC. It doesn't get any rougher and meaner than that."

Thanks to BGNN, InstaPunk has obtained storyboards of the pilot episode now being filmed, which you can see here. WARNING: It's definitely NSFW, much in the tradition of NYPD Blue and, well, Nip/Tuck.

Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, is being played by the film legend James Brolin. Asked for a comment, Wilson said, "I'm way too nonpartisan to have an opinion. But if it's something Val wants to do, I'm all for it. And I hope George Bush dies in the gutter and rots in hell with an empty can of Drano in his hand."

Actually, we didn't ask him about about George Bush, but he volunteered his thoughts anyway. We can only trust that the new series is as nonpartisan as Mr. Wilson. And according to Ms. Mapes, it is. "No politics," she said. "Just action. And sex. And violence. The idi--, er, average American viewers will love it."

Let us know what you think.

We promised we would. Her necklace is nicer than Laurie's.

UPDATE 8-3-05. The story that keeps going and going... A very good way to catch up on the latest is to read Tom Maguire at Just One Minute. And for more InstaPunk storyboards, look here.
