Hershkovitz and Zwick to ... MySpace?

How bizarre is it that legendary television writing duo Hershkovitz and Zwick are writting a show for ... MySpace?! WTF! Does anyone actually use MySpace anymore except to build some alleged buzz for one's music group? From Paidcontent:

"Another Hollywood broadband endeavor ... Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, creators of thirtysomething and My So-Called Life, are bringing new series quarterlife online via MySpace. We’re running a little low when it comes to online video firsts: this one is pitched as the first time a network-quality series will be produced directly for the Internet, something that could be argued. It’s also ''the first time an independent project of this distinction has been owned and controlled by its creators, Herskovitz and Zwick.'' A better way of putting that: creating a show they own online gives the Emmy-winning duo far more autonomy than they usually get. (That could be very good or we could see why autonomy’s not all it’s cracked up to be.)"
