I ran across this on Del.icio.us
: Showrunner Peter Murrieta's Blog
. And he's writing two pilots and blogging about it in bits and pieces. And telling it like it is:
Well, it looked like we might actually be getting close to some actual writing on this project and then all of the sudden, I've got no story. That is, I've laid out the story that I wanted to tell, incorporated the notes I was given and I'm ready to go, but my producing partners and the network feel like maybe it's not the best pilot story to tell. Okay. I've been working on that story for six months, but I'm sure the next story, the one I come up with in one day will be better. I know it's all about getting the show on the air and keeping my employers passionate about the project, but I'm swiftly losing my passion in the process.
So better read it before he comes to his senses and takes it down like Why Television Sucks did.
Peter Murrieta ran Greetings from Tucson
and wrote Three Sisters
, according to the IMDB
. He's also posted a whole 50 page sitcom script
about a cheesy Latino channel that has its own Jimmy Smits correspondent. At least I think it's for a sitcom. Funny stuff.
Check it out, let me know what you think.
He Just needs an RSS Feed now...
There is an RSS feed:
Peter and his wife run bang improv studio in West Hollywood (on Fairfax, between Melrose and Beverly). My wife took improv classes there. It's a great program for people who have never done improv. You spend about 6 months in classes, then spend 6 months performing every Friday night. Improv is an excellent exercise for writers -- I highly recommend it.
If you live in L.A., it's worth checking out. They put on a lot of great shows there too. Plus, they're right across the street from Largo and a few doors down from Canter's, so you can grab a bite to eat then catch a comedy set at Largo afterwards.
Thanks for the mention. I'm knee deep in writing, pulling my hair out and wasting time by surfing around. Nice to see someone's reading.
