Bill, from “Party” calls to assign me some bits to write. I note in my log that this is a good sign because the writer meetings have generally been without form. I write that some “kid” on the staff seems to have made an impression on people and might wind up as an on-screen character (“Oh, well.”)
I was busy and my spirits much improved. I even began to formulate salvaging much of the Pee-Wee related material I had concocted and build a script around that.
Through August I was writing the new “Jingle Bell Blues” script, cranking out “Where’s the Party” material and faxing that off to the writers meetings I was missing because of my day job. I was invited to join the tapings in New Haven. This was Labor Day weekend, we were at the tail end of ABC Summer Nights auditions.
Then Glenn from Style Without Substance called. A friend of his was putting together a pilot for HBO on movie parodies and wanted to meet with me!
It was all coming together, baby!
