Dan Savage, the renowned sexpert known for dispensing no-nonsense advice alongside linguistic coups, may be taking his ample wit and wisdom to premium cable. The syndicated alt-weekly columnist and gay-life memoirist is currently in L.A. working on a pilot for an HBO series. "I'm hoping to bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex," he writes on his blog. "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!" If you're in L.A. and in a participatory mood, you can try to get tickets to this Thursday's taping here.
