Well, the weekend is upon us – provided, of course, you still adhere to Old Time and continue to recognize the weekend as a thing.
The TimEscape package (bible and two scripts) have gone out to about a dozen potential buyers – for starters. Two quick passes so far. The first, not surprisingly, from a place that, uh, already has a major sci-fi franchise on rotation. The other, a place I could never really figure out in terms of their branding and overall direction – so not all that surprising.
Meanwhile, the other sci-fi project is poised to follow. At the moment, we are just generating a list of possible homes.
The initial response to the Project F series overview and first draft script has been great. Next week, a new executive joins the creative mix and I look forward to hearing his thoughts. He’s a genre guy, which is great, not sure his expertise and preferences extends to sci-fi/gaming/k-pop hybrid shows. We’ll find out Thursday!
Shout out to Ella Myers of No Equal Entertainment who took the written series overview and transformed it into a positively gorgeous and compelling pitch deck.
Forwarded my two horror features to my agent earlier this week. As a rule of thumb: the longer the turnaround response, the more negative the feedback. The clock is ticking!
Finally heard back from the streamer re: the small town horror series. It was a pass, but the form response did, kindly, wish us luck on our future endeavors. I draw solace from the fact that they did take the extra effort of letting us know rather than simply not responding and assuming we’d figure it out (which is the norm).
A couple of comic-to-television adaptations in a holding pattern.
A near-future tech-driven murder mystery pilot on deck.
And a comedy procedural.
It seems like a lot but, truly, much of my days are now spent studying the stock market. I’m enjoying the minutiae of tracking data, trends, and indicators. My years of obsessing over Fantasy Football stats have apparently served me well!
