My Other New Baby

When, at some future date, you are reading about the poor decision making that led to the demise of Fox Broadcasting you'll know that it started here.

What began as a visit to possibly the flattest and brownest place on Earth will now be at least one hour of television about flatness and brownness. It could all go horribly wrong, but I suspect that at a bare minimum we'll get a pretty trainwreck out of it. It's hard and occasionally forbidden to write about work, but I'll keep you in the loop to the extent possible.

If you wish to send congratulatory cookies I will name extras after you.

How about a box of Rice Krispies Treats like they sell over at Sams Club? My dogs follow me around the house anytime I try to eat one. At least you'd only have to share with two kids and a wife.

Congrats on a show about one of my favorite places on earth. When do you start shooting the pilot?

AME said...

You know the show would probably be much more interesting - and INFINITELY more sleazy - if it was called "Odessa." Seriously, it's a testament to your talent that you could make the tall city worthy of its own show. I'll get Mike baking on some cookies. P.S. Were the Hitler references part of this pilot? I mean it makes sense - we all know he's in hell.

Thanks to all. To be clear, any type of sweets will be accepted as long as they're not fruit, which is a fake sweet.

@AME - No Hitler, he was threatening to work his way into the other project due last week, but you make an interesting point and I'll be sure to pitch him to the network as a surprise guest if we make it to series.

"Midland, Midland, that's my hometown." I think my parents still have the record recording of it from the 70s. You should look into it. Congrats!
