01/24/2006: All Anyone is Talking About
In rereading yesterday’s post, I see that in my attempt to write in a whimsical manner about car repairs, I may have mistakenly given the impression that I wasn’t talking about a car at all, but rather a poorly-typed cat. But it wasn’t a cat. It was a Camry.
So. Enough nonsense. Didja hear about the WB and UPN? I didn’t even know they were dating, and now this! An elopement! An elopement between a frog and a circle! Nature recoils.
If I had a writers’ room to go to today, I promise you, no work would be getting done. This is all anyone would be talking about. In fact, I would guess that no writing is being done in Hollywood today. Especially on WB or UPN shows. There, the showrunners will be on the phone with executives, trying to find out if their shows will survive the merge, and the other writers will be on the phone with their agents, worried about their employment. And just imagine all the writers who are in the first year of multi-year development deals with one net or the other! What happens to them? Yikes! And, even worse, what about writers with pilot scripts under consideration at one place or the other?! Cell phones are going to burst into flames across town today, toasting ears at every level of the industry. Chaos!
I’m going to have dinner tonight at a very industry-heavy hotspot. I’ll report back and let you know if there are any Ear-nfernos nearby. I’ll be very interested to overhear the other tables.
Today’s Lunch: tabouli and rye-crisps and almonds!
