HBO is considering a show based on Savage Love, the sex advice column syndicated in alternative weeklies.

In his blog for his home paper, Seattle's The Stranger, columnist Dan Savage said he has been working on a non-airing presentation pilot for HBO that would be called Savage Love.

Quoting from a draft press release for the show, Savage said the possible show will focus on current events and cultural trends with sex as the filter.

He added: I'm hoping to bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex -- an honest conversation, one that's informed without being (too) wonky, funny without being (too) cruel, sexy without being (too) cheesy. Basically, my sex advice column -- but on the teevee!

The first taping is scheduled for Thursday, he said.
