Calling HBO

Reading Niles Lathem’s article on the latest Oil-for-Food hijinks in this morning’s NYPost, I thought what a great replacement series for “The Sopranos” the whole UNSCUM scandal would make. Right away I saw Eddie Murphy as Kofi Annan. (Don’t laugh – comics can always play straight. It’s the other way around you get into trouble.) The other characters are up to you. But what about a series title? It shouldn’t be too on the nose.
