Gibson’s Malibu mugshot via the Smoking Gun

The Disney-owned network has dropped a planned Holocaust miniseries by Mel Gibson‘s production company in the wake of the actor’s alleged anti-Semetic remarks and drunk-driving arrest last week in Malibu.
ABC told the Wall Street Journal they were pulling the project because after two years in development they have yet to see a script. If that’s their story, they should stick with it.
