Roland Emmerich, the director/producer behind next week's apocalyptic 2012, is planning to extend his disaster franchise into television. Despite popular belief that there is no way to follow up on a White House-crushing tidal wave, Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly that there is still "plenty to do in a TV show." Along with Mark Gordon of Grey's Anatomy, Emmerich wants the show to focus on the resettling of earth, picking up with "a group of people who survived but not on the boats ... maybe they were on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island in the process of the crust moving." Emmerich is reportedly in talks with ABC. [EW]
