John Layman has “done a Gris Grimly” and posted some bad news about one of his pending projects to Twitter.
There will not be a CHEW TV series on Showtime.

Aww, rats. I really loved the idea of TV dinners in front of Chew.
One might hope that Layman will “do the other Gris Grimly” and bounce back with at least a part reversal, but I would guess it’s pretty definite from the context and the statement.
No Chew for Showtime doesn’t mean no Chew on TV at all, of course. Let’s see what happens next.
