Look at ’em. Best of buddies!
As part of Carl Binder’s ongoing 12-Step Rehabilitation Back into Society Program – and my volunteer work with underprivileged youth, animals, and former Stargate producers – we all got together the other night for an evening of sushi and song. Minus the song. Although I suspect there was some humming on the part of our waiter who looked like a young Peyton Manning. As for the sushi –
Speaking of food – apparently, the invitation to Akemi’s sister’s wedding is on its way. The bride is putting the finishing touches on plans for The Big Day, among them the choice of the perfect wedding cake. I would like to suggest chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, and red velvet – in that order. No, really. I want to suggest it but Akemi says no. 🙁 She also quashed my idea of the BEST wedding gift the bride and groom could ever hope to get: yours truly regaling them with a fifteen minute kabuki performance to honor their culture and rich tradition. Akemi thinks we should go with cash instead. This really sucks as I started my chunori training last week and have already invested in a yokobue. 🙁 🙁
Alright, here we go!
Paul and I developed a pilot script and series overview for Dark Matter – which is presently in limbo with one broadcaster.
We also developed a pilot and series overview for an urban fantasy series – presently in limbo with another broadcaster.
We’re currently working on the pilot script for the proposed Johnny Mnemonic series.
And, once we get the contract done, will begin fast-track development on that rare non-genre series. The broadcaster is looking for a second script (episode #2 I presume) and a bible after which it’ll (no doubt) be smoooooooooooooth sailing.
Yep, if all goes as planned, we should have four shows on the air in 2014!
Our now bi-monthly Supermovie of the Week Club resumes this Monday with a (sort of) “super”hero-themed movie: Despicable Me. The week following is wide open, however, so let’s hear your nominees. We’re open to any genre and welcome any suggestions – except for the two titles that didn’t make the cut in the last poll, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Ultraviolet, owing to the whole double jeopardy procedural defense that is presently law in this country. Sorry, guys. I don’t make the rules.
