Is ABC’s Cashmere Mafia the first sacrifice of the WGA strike? The premiere, originally set for November 27 at 10p, is now TBA. Maybe ABC is holding back in case of dire need, later in the season.

Or did the ABC suits take one look at the story and photo in the LA Times’ Image section and decided to push the series to the back of the closet forever and ever?

Quentin Tarantino and Lucy Liu are the EPs of a documentary film about–no, not competitive knife throwing– water polo.

But it is a bloody water polo match: Hungary vs. USSR in the 1956 Olympics. Brother/sister film makers, Colin Keith Gray and Megan Raney Aarons made Freedom’s Fury, They interviewed surviving members of both teams and arranged and filmed a reunion of the two teams in Budapest in 2002.

David Davis interviewed the filmakers for the AAF newsletter. Best quote:

People think that it’s a little obscure. Once they see the people involved–Mark Spitz, Lucy Liu, Quentin Tarantino–and then they hear that it’s about a struggle for freedom–that instantly resonates everywhere.
