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!)…
