It’s nice to be back home. Last night, I slept in my own bed, with my own dog snuggled up against me. And, today, I was back in the swing of things, taking a few meetings and, most importantly, completing a first draft of my second TimEscape script. The more I write for these characters, the more determined I am to see this show made – for my sake (because I love writing this show) and for yours as well (because you’re going to LOVE it). I’ll get some notes, do a pass, then send to my partners at EOne, go through a round of their notes, and then send on to the network. I’m hoping to hear word on a green light by top of April at the latest – which, honestly, feels a long ways off.
In the meantime, also awaiting word on another amazing mega secret project. This one is in play but, as always, who knows if and when things will fall into place. It’s really a no-brainer – but, sometimes, there’s no figuring the decision-makers.
And then there’s that other SUPER project that has been held up for going on six months now. This one would be a blast as well.
And, of course, the other projects and prospects.
The one thing that gives me pause as these various possibilities coalesce is the likelihood that committing to one will pretty much shut the door on the others. But, of course, that’s a classy problem to have. In a perfect world, with a perfect schedule, I could do all three. But I am not a patient person. For the sake of my immediate sanity, I’ll settle for one. NOW.
Michael Klinghoffer and Judy Spencer were two of the co-creators of #StudentBodies, my very first live-action series. They were welcoming, collaborative and, above all else, just a hell of a lot of fun to work with. pic.twitter.com/7rTM2136Rn

My former writing partner, Paul Mullie, has always had a great ear for dialogue, and a great head for logic. If your story could survive a writers' room with Paul in attendance, then you knew it was bulletproof. pic.twitter.com/ATufCkSipC

Alex Levine started as a script coordinator on #Stargate and is now one of Canada's premiere t.v. writers with credits on #OrphanBlack, #XCompany, and #Flashpoint. With a great head for story and character, he's a huge asset in the writer's room. pic.twitter.com/JUHDCQdc6F
