As we head into November, we also head into the t.v. industry’s slow season. With Thanksgiving on deck and the Christmas season soon to follow, it’s hard to get executives to focus, much less read your project. More than likely, it ends up in a pile that they won’t get around to until AFTER they get back from the holidays, some time in January. Presumably.
Had a zoom call yesterday about the kpop/sci-fi series as well as the android murder mystery series. Revising the pitch deck for the former and looking to make some changes to the latter with the intention of going out with both top of the year. Love both these projects but I honestly feel like I’ve been working on them for as long as I can remember. And it’s exhausting.
We’ve attached a lead actor and a director to my action-adventure project and that one will, presumably, go out in January as well. It has apparently garnered some fair interest, especially overseas. If this one goes, it would see me working with an actor I worked with a few years back.
Meanwhile, the murder mystery pilot and deck are locked. Zoom chat on Wednesday to discuss the game plan. Really do like the producer I”m working with on this one. He’s very straight-forward and always keeps me in the loop.
Finally, the financing for that horror movie is in limbo as we await the lawyers – who don’t seem to be in any rush. Which is a shame because, while they dither, we risk losing one of our key locations in Bulgaria.
Delivered all the scripts for my five-issue horror comic (due out early 2024). Was informed I’d be meeting with the new editor via zoom the week before last but, alas, nothing has materialized. Ideally, would be great to get – and implement – any notes prior to December because, once the 4th rolls around, I am in Japan-mode.
Speaking of Japan-mode…

P.S. Thanks for all of the great advice regarding the treatment of dogs with separation anxiety. (Drea, you were particularly detailed and thorough!). We started to implement and test several of your suggestions.
I honestly can’t believe it’s almost Christmas 2023 already. It feels like just yesterday we were wiping down our mail with clorox wipes and being advised to rinse our produce in diluted bleach. What a difference 2 YEARS makes!
