because he has been shopping around a vioent drama series called 'Women in Chains' that takes place in a womens prison. Rose McGowan will be the star of the show. Here is what Hollywood Reporter has to report:
The spec script, penned by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, has been sent to a number of networks, including NBC and FX.
McGowan is set play one of five chained women at the center of the show, which Rodriguez is expected to direct. The two first worked together on last year's "Planet Terror," Rodriguez's homage to 1970s exploitation flicks.
The new show also is rumored to be fashioned with a 1970s exploitation sensibility, with such staples like mud wrestling. Details about the plot were first leaked to AintItCool.com earlier this week.
Unless it goes to HBO, Showtime, or maybe FX, I can't see another network picking it up. They say it went to NBC, but I don't think they will get away with what it seems they want to get away with there. Lets just wait and see who if anyone picks it up.
