THE GAYEST SHOW I EVER SEE!!

most tv sucks these days, but there are some shining examples of good writing, acting, camera work, etc... we call those Deadwood and Arrested Development. Family Guy sucks ass, though...

Damn. So, aside from the sad fact there is nothing good on TV, what does this mean for you? Will "I worked in post-production on an Emmy-winning but not highly-rated show" help your resume, or do you just get to go to another position within WB?

I'll shoot my updated resume over to the good folks at WB Post Production. Holly Esposito is a good friend and hooks me up with work. Pilot season is coming up, so there will be something.

But I really liked this one, dammit. I've lost faith in the taste of everyone everywhere.

I've not been shitting you when I say it's the only network primetime show I actually watch. I occasionally catch Kitchen Nightmares/Hell's Kitchen, but don't usually plan to watch it. I've even been skipping Animation Domination a lot recently.

Deadwood, Arrested Development, and now Pushing Daisies. Shows I love are screwed.

Fuller mentioned a possible comic book and movie. It would work as a comic, but would lose a lot of what makes it special in translation. Have they thought about possibly going the straight-to-DVD mini-movies route like Futurama, which seems to be doing quite well? I dunno how much clout you have, but, if you think you can influence them, definitely point that out.

I'm flattered you think I rate. :)

Who's the decision maker? Well here's a quick lesson in television. The creator (Bryan Fuller) comes up with an idea and pitches it to producers (Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen). They like the idea enough to sell it to a studio (Warner Bros) and then they pay everybody to make a pilot. At this point a pilot production crew is put together, including hiring a director. In this particular case, Barry Sonnenfeld. Fun fact, the pilot's director gets residuals for THE REST OF THE SERIES because he decided the "look" and "feel" of the show. (So David Nutter, who directed Smallville's pilot for instance is still making money off of Smallville, even though he only directed the first episode). Barry gets his name attached as an Exec Producer because it looks good when Warner Bros starts shopping the pilot around to different networks ( in this case ABC). ABC says "It looks great!" and orders a dozen episodes. Added with the pilot this makes the standard order of any show 13 episodes.

So then each episode becomes a collaboration. They write a script, then send it off to the Studio (WB) and Network (ABC) for notes, changes, legal S&P stuff (can't say that, can't show that, etc) until the script gets approved. Then they shoot it. Then the director turns in his cut to the producers. The producers make changes as they see fit and send it to the studio. The studio gives notes as it is their product they are selling to the network, one episode at a time. The changes are made and then it is sent to the Network for their notes and ideas. There is back and forth, if the producers feel that something should stay in an episode they will fight for it. other times the Network has its say. Working on OTH there were several times the CW wanted something changed, and Schwahn said "You bet!" and then never changed it. So it happens that way also.

Finally the Network approves the final show. They "lock" the picture, which means every edit down to the frame is approved and made note of when they cut the air master dubs and cannot be changed. Then they work on the sound on a mix stage for two days, drop the FX shots in and make air masters which are taken to ABC.

Then it airs and nobody watches and advertisers don't buy airtime and it gets canceled. The decision maker is some dude at ABC who makes $$$ a year that I never see or meet. The highest up I get is chatting with Bryan after I get him a coffee or saying hey to Jinks/Cohen when I drop off dailies or credits need to be signed.

The final season is about to begin (diabolical will be crushed) and they finally revealed the mother after nine seasons. I looked up the actress playing the mother. She was born in Aug 1985. Meanwhile, the actress who played the teenage daughter in the flashbacks, who was an actual teenager at the time her scenes were filmed during season 1, was born a mere year and a half after her TV mother in Jan 1987. It would have been hilarious if they had cast her instead and she played her own mother.
