Let’s start with the most interesting TV news tonight: MTV got to sit down with Gil Grant (24, NCIS:LA), writer of the upcoming Gattaca television series, and managed to get some fascinating info from him. If you were wondering how Andrew Niccol’s film would be adapted to TV, I have two words for you: Police procedural. While it’s far from a unique concept on television, the idea of making one of the cops an Invalid (a person born without the benefit of genetic diagnosis), and another a genetically superior Valid, does seem somewhat inspired.
