I pitched Akemi some of the character elements of my Untitled Awesome Project today and she is now bemoaning the fact that she can’t watch the show. Yet! She already has a favorite and some of the situations I describe had her laughing out loud. Even my go-to onset producer, Ivon, is excited about it – and he only knows the basic premise. Some major Dark Matter vibes in this one, thematic and tonal similarities that would make it ideal for crossover potential.
Tonight’s blog entry is late because I’ve been having way too much fun working on this series overview that is already 12 pages long. It hopefully goes out next week for initial broadcaster consideration. Also, apparently, I need to come up with an actual title for the show. I’m stumped. I throw it over to you guys. Any ideas?
Speaking of overviews, I did a pass on one this afternoon for the series I’m currently showrunning, a polish on an impressive first draft written by our script coordinator, Sam. It will also go out for broadcaster approval along with the pilot script I revised this morning and sent RT’s way. Things are coming along nicely on this front. The revised outlines for Episodes 3-5 are in play and it’s looks like fluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuiiiiiiid and siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilky sailing!
Should I succeed in finishing all my work well ahead of schedule, I may actually treat myself to a matinee tomorrow. Halloween? Venom? Suspira? Can You Ever Forgive Me? Burning?
Or will I just stay home, researching fantasy football and thinking about starting Haunting of Hill House?
P.S. I woke up to the sound of tremendous CRASH this morning. Turns out one of the motorized blinds snagged and upended my bar holding my entire collection of Japanese whiskies. Two crystal glasses shattered but I’m pleased to report that the Hibiki, Toki, Yoichi, Bush, Taketsuru, and Tokinoka survived the ordeal unscathed.
