'Texts From Last Night' to Become Fox TV Show


'Texts From Last Night' was funny, at first. But, when friends started posting text messages from the Web site on our Facebook page, it became annoying. Then, the user-generated site, which is full of embarrassing admissions sent late at night, became a full-scale phenomenon -- spawning an iPhone application, a Twitter page, an online store, and now, a television show -- all much to our chagrin.

Fox has landed the rights to create a television show, which will be produced by Sony TV and Happy Madison, based on 'TFLN.' The show's writer Steve Holland told The Hollywood Reporter, "The show is about twentysomethings in that post-college, pre-the-rest-of-their-lives limbo trying to figure out what to do, and texting is a large part of that." Apparently, finding your life's calling is as simple as getting wasted and sending texts to your buddies. If that were true, our lives would be in a lot better shape.



Here's an idea, Fox. Consider the site's tagline ("Remember that text you shouldn't have sent last night? We do."), and just apply it to the show: "Remember that horrible idea for a TV show you came up with last night? [From: The Hollywood Reporter]
