If you love television shows based on Facebook games, and you love the work of Brett Ratner, then you are going to love this news about Brett Ratner making a television show about a Facebook game. From Deadline:

Brett Ratner has joined with Six Eleven Media to produce a TV version of the successful online game FarmVille. The Hercules director and the Canadian production company aim to make a half hour animated series out of the farming simulation social networking game. “FarmVille is one of the most exciting brands out there today and its cross-platform opportunities are endless. I am thrilled to be expanding the brand with existing fans and also engaging a whole new audience,” said Ratner in a statement Thursday.

He is thrilled to be expanding the brand. Which is one of the most exciting brands out there today. See also: #brands, #excitement, #crossplatform. What is even the point of releasing statements like this? Do the CEOs of the Facebook game companies get sad if a celebrity (haha, well) doesn’t talk about their licensed product like a Powerpoint Presentation? The world continues to and will always be a vampire. The good news is tomorrow’s Friday. Let’s start planning our weekends now!!!! Step one: throw computer in bath tub full of warm water. Step two: board windows. Step three: drink wine.
