i handed in the final draft of my robot & monster script, and am ready to start my next script. we’re at an interesting point in the fellowship where one of several things can happen in the next few weeks:
- we might be able to sit in on the writers rooms for the shows we just wrote specs for. in my case, robot & monster.
- we might be able to work with an EIC (executive in charge) and write a spec of a nickelodeon live action show.
- if one of those 2 things don’t happen right away, we can work on a new spec script.
- or we can write a pilot script. because a pilot will take a long time to develop and write, we also have to write a spec at the same time.
i want to write a pilot (which i’ll write about later), and for my new spec, i decided to go with parks and recreation. i’ve already written specs of the office, 30 rock, and community, so i guess i’m basically writing specs for all of nbc’s thursday night line up.
i went to the parks and rec panel this week at paley fest. the moderator commented that the show at first wasn’t that well received, but then it found its legs and got really funny. amy poehler responded by saying (i’m paraphrasing) that’s like someone saying your baby was ugly but now it’s cute. ha ha.
