Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1007: Why did you tell me to sign up for Cynopsis.com?
"Actor/rapper Ice Cube is developing a drama for FX called Eye for an Eye about a paramedic who wants to avenge victims of violent crimes. FX has ordered a script of the project that is in the early stage of development. Ice Cube will star in the drama.
Cynopsis is about everything television related; what's been bought, who's attached, what's premiering, what's been cancelled, etc. It is a great research tool. The person who asked this is a DP/Operator, and I suggested he subscribe for the free daily email from Cynopsis because even though it's giving high level information which would seem to be important to tv executives, writers, and agents, if you are in another classification and are interested in television you must be "in the know."
For example, today in the development section Cynosis reported that
TNT ordered the pilot project Chelsea General (wt), a medical drama series from David E. Kelley and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, M.D. Kelley and Dr. Gupta will executive-produce. Kelley wrote the pilot script for the series, which is based on Gupta’s upcoming novel Monday Mornings."
