Just found out I did not get a gig writing a "New York Jewish comedy" feature because my samples are not New York Jewish enough. This is even dumber than producers nixing a blonde actress because "the character's a brunette." (Which, by the way, I've heard.) I don't even need to add hair color. I went to Dalton, I have a Zabars bag in my closet, and Barbra shot Up the Sandbox
in my apartment building. I never pay retail if I can avoid it.
What I don't have is a "New York Jewish comedy" sample. I have written everything from fashion models to flamethrower vigilantes; I just have never written about my overprivileged childhood in New York.
It's funny how little producers know about writing. It's sort of terrifying, really.
As my 2-year-old daughter is fond of saying, "Oh well."
Not being flippant here, just wondering if producers understanding all about writing wouldn't be akin to car manufacturerd teaching driver's ed?
So sorry... where are my headache meds!
No, I think it would be more like car buyers understanding what it is mechanics do.
Poor pookie! Sometimes it sucks to be you, eh? :-)
