Today, I completed my pass on the horror script, incorporating notes from Paul, Rob, Ivon, and Tara before sending it on its way. It is now in the hands of my agent(s) who will take the weekend to read it and then get back to me early next week with their thoughts, notes, and/or tearful recriminations.
Now, I switch gears to do a polish on a couple of past pilots (and, hopefully, finish another one) so that our agent can be well-prepared to show off our work to interested parties. Yesterday, we chatted about various opportunities, among them the possibility of working on a new series south of border (no, not Mexico). For my part, I’m fairly content as I am in low gear work-from-home mode, but I sense my writing partner is getting a little antsy. I told everyone that, at the end of the day, it all comes down to the show. I’d be foolish to give it a pass on a great opportunity. On the other hand, I’d be even more foolish to get involved in some half-ass, seat-of-your-pants production in which Paul and I would be expected to work miracles.
Whatever we decide, looks like we’ll be heading to L.A. sooner than later to take some meetings and pitch some projects, our comic book series Dark Matter among them. Following some great initial discussions with one potential partner for a proposed Dark Matter series/mini-series, talks have bogged down so I’m keen to test the waters by taking the project out to some other prospective players.
As for the comic book series, the fourth and final issue of the opening arc hits the shelves next week. Here’s a sneak peek at the first page (subsequent pages will be previewed in forthcoming blog entries):
Abandoned by one of their own, the remaining crew members are trapped planet-side as enemies orbit their position. Outnumbered and outgunned, their only hope rests with a suicidal last stand-and help from a most unlikely source…

Today, Akemi and I were back at the new Fat Dragon Asian BBQ restaurant to sample – oh, almost everything we didn’t try on our first visit…
As it turns out, there are still about a half dozen items we have yet to check out on the regular menu.
Round three perhaps?
