Not at the moment.  Midnight Nation is available, and it's one of those
things I might spec out on my own after a while, and Rising Stars just
ended its option period with MGM.  There are a couple of studios nosing
around the edges of the thing, but we'll have to see.  And yes, I
control the film and TV rights to both of those.
