Tea at the Ford, a slightly arcane Buffy site run by someone whose avatar is an obscure Irish war goddess, has some insightful posts on my favorite sf program that I ever wrote for, Charlie Jade.

How much more interest does our show have to generate before Sci Fi relents and picks the damn show up? Or Bob puts it out on DVD?

UPDATE: Robert makes the brilliant suggestion of releasing CJ as a mobile screen video download for video iPods and European cell phones. I sent it along to our showrunner and our network exec. It would get us a small revenue stream, cost nothing, and increase awareness. And anyone who digs it on iPod is still going to want to see it on their 27" TV. Thanks, Robert!

Caught most of the eps via bit torrent. Hope Sci-Fi does pick it up.

Too bad the studio couldn't do a deal with Apple.

Charlie Jade on a Pod. Has a nice ring to it.

Any word on a second season?

We still haven't seen it down here. A co-production partner? what's up with that?

By Blogger African Den, at 2:10 AM  

A very astute analysis of the show. It's a shame Sci-Fi has yet to pick it up but it's also a shame that members of CJ's production team feel that the show's true success can only be measured by a run on American television. Why can't near world-wide syndication suffice? Why must we constantly compare ourselves to Americans and seek their approval? I don't give a rat's ass if my series ever shows on American television, when there are millions of other viewers around the world who will welcome it with open arms (I hope).

Robert, I learned just last week (from Denis) that they're working on stories for season two.

Kelly's making a philosophical point where there may be none to make. In the case of CJ, the complicated international financing of the show means that raising a budget for a 2nd season is hard.

Unless you get a US sale, where it then becomes viable instantly. This is not an artistic argument at all. It's entirely a financial one.

And script development does not mean greenlighting for production -- though it's a positive step.

As to African Den, I saw something that said that SABC 3 has schduled Jade starting Jan 6.

Robert, that is an EXCELLENT idea. I forwarded it to Bob (our visionary showrunner) and Diane (our visionary network exec).

It's nice to know that the Charlie Jade train is still on the tracks.

Put me down as another interested in that second season.
