Alas, four months later, we’re no closer to finding our dream condo. Or, more to the point, our dream condo that falls within our budget. Not in Toronto or Montreal. So far. But construction on new condos continues apace and, with indications of a softening market, we’re hopeful…and in no hurry. Also, I have no idea where my next show will take me so what’s the rush?
Great notes meeting today on Project A, the sci-fi series I’m developing with David Ray. Solid, character-related input on the outline. David and I will put our heads together in the coming days, come up with a game plan, and then follow up with a call next week. If all goes well, I should start writing the pilot shortly. A fairly challenging series this one, with double world building, complex character dynamics, and a constantly subverted status quo.
Conference call this Thursday for Project B, an adaptation of a forthcoming sci-fi novel. We’ll be discussing my take on the prospective series after which, hopefully, I’ll be moving forward on development. I have my fingers crossed for this one. It’s a hell of a lot of fun with a unique tech element at its core. I’ve read one of the author’s other books and think he’s pretty damn brilliant. Also, doesn’t hurt that he’s a fan of Dark Matter.
Projects C, E, F, and G are in a holding pattern. I impatiently await word. Meanwhile…
I had a meeting late last week about Project D, that horror novel to small screen adaptation. Now it’s less a matter of “if” but “when” the deal closes. WHEN that happens, things will be move quickly.
Since my last update, another possibility, let’s call it Project H, has entered the mix. Another horror-themed potential series, this one an original, I forwarded my vision for the show’s first season (and subsequent take on subsequent seasons) this morning. Fingers crossed.
And tonight, I’m having dinner with Executive Producer Vanessa Piazza to discuss a few more potential collaborations: a couple of novels, a comic book, and three original ideas.
Now this is my kind of busy. Busy, but not too busy. Finally got around to watching that final episode of Stranger Things season 2, am four episodes in to the latest season of Black Mirror, and almost finished a terrific Icelandic mystery series called Trapped. The series lead, Olafur Darri Olaffson, is magnificent.
