I'm down with a headache, cough, dizziness and the desire to sleep 16 hours out of 24. It's a good time to be sick because I'm waiting for the next step in all my projects. Waiting to hear from the network on the series I'm developing. Waiting for my director to come to town to work on the comedy I'm adapting from a novel. Waiting for the Greenberg Fund to thumbs-up or thumbs-down a project I want to rewrite. Waiting to hear back from a producer on a series he wants me to develop with him. I don't want to make any more commitments to that, so I've been going through my files looking for pitches that want to become treatments, treatments that need to become scripts, stories that need to be fixed, etc. Yesterday I was stuck between a romantic comedy idea I've fallen out of love with, but which would be commercial, and a probably unproducable historical horror idea, kind of a Heritage Moment with werewolves.
A fine time to get sick, if I have to get sick. I'm catching up on all my TiVo. MEADOWLANDS, anyone?
Wouldn't "a Heritage Moment with werewolves" be Ginger Snaps III?
I've been working on the same extremely commercial rom-com for what seems like ages now, even though I have quite definitely "fallen out of love." I keep assuring myself it will be worth it.
Get well soon.
Meadowlands? Don't forget to get better. Oh, and if you aren't watching Dexter, now's the time to pickup the DVDs.
