10:45 a.m.: Marc Bendavid, Dark Matter’s ONE, was in town for a limited time only. Fortunately, I was able to book early to avoid disappointment. We discussed ailments, pending projects, and early retirement. Also, the fact that there’s better eating in Rome than Budapest!
12:00 a.m.: Lunch with the gang from Company A. About a month ago, I pitched them a half dozen ideas and, today, they made their selection. A little surprised yet no less delighted by their choice – and you will be too if you were a fan of THAT episode. We made plans to get together next week and commence the development process.
1:21 p.m.: Received the list of prospective candidates (and supporting materials) for the writers’ room of that pending sci-fi series. Lots to get through tonight.
1:45 p.m.: Rumblings the deal is almost done on securing the film & television rights to that horror novel.
3:00 p.m.: Lattes with the gang from Broadcaster A to discuss their notes on the last draft of the sci-fi pilot. We decided to keep the final reveal and revisit
if once the show gets picked up.
4:23 p.m.: Received more notes on the series overview for that horror series. Hmmmm. Honestly thought we’d be on our way to script by this point. At this point, beginning to question whether I’m the guy for this particular job. Conference call tomorrow – which should shed some light on the situation.
6:15 p.m.: Arrange departure time with Ivon (driver and future on-set producer?) for tomorrow’s pre-pre-PRE-production location scout with Project A’s creator/director.
7:05 p.m.: Take the dogs out for their last walk of the night.
