Okay.  I’ve pulled the trigger.  I’m all in.  Next up, the negotiations.  Meanwhile, I’ve already started discussions about series structure with the show’s insanely talented creator.  Good good guy.  You’re gonna love him.

In answer to the obvious question – Yes, sci-fi, but very different from the type of shows I’ve worked on in the past.  Very exciting.

If all goes as planned, we should convene the writer’s room in early August after which it’ll be smoooooooooth sailing!

This is definitely going to put a crimp in my record-setting reading pace.

Oh, thanks to everyone asking about the move.  We’re all settled in.  Akemi successfully assembled both the bar and bar cart.  By the time the book and liquor shelving arrive in 5-6 weeks, I’ll have all 65 bottles of whiskey on display. Meanwhile, we accepted delivery of the new coffee table, bar stools, dining room chairs, and living room couch (albeit with the wrong legs).  Once we get a t.v. in here for moderate background noise, it’ll truly feel like home.

The dogs, meanwhile, are already fully settled.  Lulu has already claimed the couch (with the wrong legs) as her own.

But that sunny spot by the window remains a favorite.

Suji meanwhile, not quite as chill, too a little longer to adapt.  Pictured above facing one of her many existential moments.

The nice thing is we’re now only a short 5 minute walk from my favorite place with the fancy coffees.  Pictured above, me on a date with my gal.

Tomorrow, it’s lunch with former Dark Matter Visual Effects Supervisor Lawren Bancroft-Wilson, possibly an anime matinee, some more research for this upcoming project.  Official news to come…

I’ve read that dogs are more attached to people and cats their territory. I guess Suji has to have both? 😉 She’ll whip the new place into shape soon.

Great news on the new show and I can’t wait to hear about it!

Well, well, well…a new project! It’s time to get those show gears well oiled and the magic of a writing room humming away again. Glad to hear that the home is nearly set & adapted to. You’ll need that comfort to unwind between windups and spins.

I look forward to your latest endeavor & am excited for the talent who will be engaged with your warm family centered, character driven approach. They don’t know how lucky they are, yet. Also, I hope you can get a few sparkling dream teamers to build with again. It’s all about collaborative chemistry. I’m sure ya’ll will knock it out of the park.
Hopefully your project will fall into a media I have access to & desire to support. I don’t want to miss it!

Always if you or Akemi, Lulu or Suji need anything I’m only a DM away.

Congratulations!

Congrats! Looking forward to hearing more! Is the series greenlit or are we just at pilot stage at this point?

I’m glad the dogs are settling in fine, even if Suji does have her occasional moments. Heck, I’ve been here almost three years, and I still have mine.

This sounds like exciting news! I can’t wait to hear more.

Looks like the dogs are settling in just fine, as well as all the whisky. I wish I liked whisky, my husband does, but even in a Sazerac, I just can’t. I must have been a sailor in a former life as well as this one, it is rum for me. Dark, dark rum. Spicy. Like my soul. Buwahahahaaaa…

Very exciting developments, hoping all goes well with the negotiations!

4 days later – decision time passed. Congrats and good luck!

Seriously Mike

I wonder, though, how “different”? You can put a lot of things between Stargate and Dark Matter.

Official news to come… thats more of a cliff hanger than Dark matter’s last episode. ‘but very different from the type of shows I’ve worked on in the past’ I hope you are not straying too far from the path. If its different than what you’ve worked on in the past then its probably not militaristic, nor space crew centered. I wonder what it could be! So exciting.
