People ask me about the process of writing pilots. Each pilot is different. It’s not so much a thing of “green lighting” a pilot so to speak. You have some cases where a company, like the puppet company, hire me to write the pilot, which they then finance the presentation for it. Then there are other pilots where you’ll write a synopsis for the network, like the Jordan Sparks pilot. That’s where I’m writing a synopsis of the world that I want to create. I work with a series of producers for it, and we go through revisions from there. Every case is different. What I’m learning today is that my industry is contracting so much that its making it hard to do business, and that means you’ve got to continue to get better. The competition is fierce, there aren’t as many opportunities. I’ll share more on this later.
