Following Best Sellers onto Television
Last night, after my wife and I returned from a delightful Voices of Music concert, we made our usual decision to unwind with something we had recorded on our DVR. The television itself happened to tuned to NBC. I saw just enough to realize that this week's episode of Law & Order: SVU had been inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey. (I suppose that, if you were determined to spin a television episode off of that book, SVU would be the most appropriate target.) What I saw did not make me any more curious about the book, let alone how things would proceed on the episode; but it did leave me to wonder if Joseph Anton has a similar destiny and, if so, where and how it would show up on commercial broadcast television.
