Again, thanks to everyone who left a message about Suji. For a little girl, she had such a big, demanding personality that every facet of my daily routine was impacted by her presence – and now by her absence. Another dog will never replace Suji but seeing all those seniors and special needs pugs languishing and in need of a good home makes me believe we’ll be adopting sooner than later. Perhaps much sooner.
With the seeming resolution to the WGA strike, I’m hoping the various projects I have on the go start seeing traction. There is apparent interest on the part of a South Korean production company for my SciFi-Kpop series (Seoul!), while two potential homes have expressed interest in my globe-trotting (Greece!) action adventure series (We’ll be looking to chat with an actor we’re hoping to attach to the project maybe next week). And, finally, my cozy mystery pilot (U.K.!) will go out. The producer how optioned it is very excited – and I, in turn, am very excited at the prospect of doing a very different show. Meanwhile, looks like financing for that horror movie is looking very good (Bulgaria!). Hope to have a cash-flow schedule by next week. Tomorrow, we’re on a zoom with a possible Music Supervisor and, then week after, we should be talking to an entertainment lawyer about setting up our own prod. co. Also have a couple of zooms this week regarding some outside projects, pilots/shows in need of some development (and a showrunner) before gong out to the market, one with a very cool horror angle, the other that would shoot in Portugal. I feel like there are one or two other projects I’m forgetting, but I’m sure they’ll come to me. After I hit PUBLISH on this entry.
Looking forward to our short NYC get-away. We’ve booked a couple of tables, noted maybe too many dessert stops, but THIS is the one Akemi is most looking forward to –
For Akemi, it’s all about the fish and carbs.
