  1. Yeah! Doing the “happy dance” just like my dog does when I come home! Finally, something for us patient Americans.

  2. It’s official — ABC picked up Eli Stone for the new season at their upfront today. No timeslot assigned yet.

  3. It’s confirmed for “mid-season” and here’s some information:

    “Eli Stone: A guy starts hearing songs in his head—George Michael’s “Faith,” for instance—and the din reaches a point that, disconnected from reality, he finds himself believing he’s at a George Michael concert when in fact he’s in his office at a corporate law firm in San Francisco. Then, doing some kind of pro bono work against his better interests, he meets a hot chick with an autistic son. During a home visit, Eli sees that the kid has spelled “GEORGE MICHAEL” with his building blocks. But maybe Eli just has a brain tumor. This is for real.”

  4. One more thing, I wonder if they got this idea from George writing various words in the sand . . .

  5. What a strange concept. Maybe George paid the writers to develop this project.

  6. Lol @ plot. Someone would say that you’d have to be a little ego-maniac to star in a sit-com based around the idea of a guy being totally obsessed with you…

    Perhaps this series was devised by some *real* GM fan – in which case, he must be a reader of this blog – pleeeeease post and tell us more, Mysterious True Fan!
