This, is exhausting.

I spend all day in the writers’ room, breaking episodes, then come home at night to flesh out the stories so that I can deliver outlines in the morning.  I know, I know, this isn’t how it’s done.  But, in all fairness, it saves so much time in the long run, allowing all of the writers to weigh in so that we can, ultimately, end up with a (hopefully) bulletproof outline ready to go to script.  And once this room is over and we give the writers the green light, those scripts are going to be coming fast and furious come November.  The plan is to have all ten scripts in play in October, and all final drafts in place by January.  The only variance I’m willing to brook is a possible delay on the finale – only insofar as a later version can be informed by any production developments.

Anyway, I’m off to complete tonight’s outline.

Tonight, I leave you with the insane medley of desserts we’ve been enjoying in the room including Italian cookies, fancy donuts, decadent chocolate chip cookies, custard-filled almond pastries, egg tarts, Akemi’s rum cake, Ivon’s brownies, and Sam’s grandmother’s honey cake (sadly, not all pictured, but believe me when I say they were all deeeeeelicious!)…

  1. I don’t how you can get any work done with that many treats in the room. I’d be eating non stop!

    Don’t overwork yourself. Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint!

  2. Wow, love the look of the desserts. What’s the new series called ? ” Diabetes in Space? “

  3. ooooh. Did someone say cookie ?

    oh wait! Me gets it.
    Its another clue about the shows title, eh?

    In that case …. Here’s Guess #5:

    UF = “Unbridled Feast”.

    Damn! Now I gotta get up and walk all the way to the !#$!!#$$%! kitchen
    and make that awful steep climb
    just to grab some Pepridge Farm Sausalito cookies
    from my hidden top shelf rainy day stash.
    Gee. Thanks alot!

  4. The perks of being a Television showrunner and writer, fresh baked homemade deserts. I know you love these almost as much as the paycheck. 😉

  5. I just had pumpkin spice cinnamon swirl toast, and I’m still licking the damn screen. Mmmm.

    No wonder you’re working non-stop, all that sugar could power a small town. A small, adorable, gingerbread and candy town.

  6. Looking at those treats makes me feel the same as when I watch the British Baking Show; wishing I could reach through the glass and snag a cookie. I’ll just eat my zero cal yogurt instead and imagine it’s that rum cake. I started in on Danny Boyle’s excellent “Trust” but after watching “All the Money..” I’m all Gettyed up.
