Savage Love: The TV Show?

It could happen. Hollywood Reporter has picked up an item on the blog of Dan Savage—a popular sex-and-advice columnist whose work appears, among other places, at The A.V. Club—that Savage is taping a "non-airing presentation pilot" for HBO. What's it all about? Here's Savage:

According to a draft of press release that's sitting on my desk here at HBO—in my own office! with a lock on the door! I could be naked in here!—"Savage Love," the (potential) teevee show, "will focus on current events and cultural trends with sex as the filter." I'm hoping to bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex—an honest conversation, one that's informed without being (too) wonky, funny without being (too) cruel, sexy without being (too) cheesy. Basically, my sex-advice column—but on the teevee!

So there you have it. We're pretty sure we're not alone when we say we'd watch that show.
