melgibson.jpgMel Gibson has been touched by claims of anti-Semitism more than once; many felt that The Passion of the Christ unfairly represented Jews as bloodthirsty in their killing of Christ, and Gibson's father, an ultraconservative Catholic, has expressed skepticism over whether or not the Holocaust actually happened. In what may be in part an attempt to run damage control on that aspect of his legacy, Gibson has confirmed that one of his many upcoming TV projects includes a romantic miniseries about Flory A Van Beek, a Jew whose non-Jewish boyfriend helped her hide from the Nazis. The project is said to be in the very early stages – it couldn't possibly premiere until next season – but ABC TV movie VP is already rushing to divorce the project from any controversy that could arrise from Gibson's own political reputation. "I would tell [critics] to shut up and wait to see the movie, and then judge," Quinn Taylor says. "I'm not about to rewrite history. I'm going to explore an amazing love story that we can all learn from and, hopefully, be inspired by."
