Okay. All set and ready to fly!
Looks like it’ll be an all-travel day, so I’ve lined up a few things to keep me occupied:
On my kindle:
The Boys from Brazil, by Ira Levin
Kitchen Confidential, by Anthony Bourdain
Medium Raw, by Anthony Bourdain
It Must’ve Been Something I Ate, by Jeffrey Steingarten
The Men in the Jungle, by Norman Spinrad
On my laptop:
Six scripts for “the mystery project”.
One set of network notes for “the mystery project”.
One pilot script for the “untitled Carl Binder project”.
On my iTunes:
Breaking Bad, season 1
Top Chef, season 2
Mother (Dir: Bong Joon-ho)
It’s a six hour flight to Toronto so, hopefully, between my stockpile and the in-flight entertainment, I won’t be bored.
This week looks to be interesting as we assemble to discuss the show’s direction and, more importantly, Paul, myself, and the production try to figure out whether we’d be a good fit. It’s kind of like a blind date. A four day long, involved, occasionally argumentative, take-out-lunch-blessed blind date. And, like any blind date, it will either culminate in a commitment and relationship, or an excuse to use the facilities followed by an attempt to sneak out the tiny window in the men’s room.
