|Dan Fiorella: Writer @ large||
We reach February 1992, and I had finished and sent off “Like Magic.” I’m surprised to read that I had serious doubts about it at the time. Now, I have fond memories of it (In fact, I’m supposed to be working on it). But I was also annoyed that my Hollywood connections (Kevin, Bill and Joel) didn’t want to see any of my scripts, they just wanted to consider stuff they pitched to me.
January 2, 1992, I began my first entry of the New Year. I marveled over the fact that a year previous I was waiting to hear from Warner, rushing to rewrite “GhostWriter,” getting in the WGA and knocking out pages of “Like Magic.” Even six months earlier I was awaiting word from Pee-Wee’s people about the script and working on “Where’s the Party.” What a turn of events, right? The following six months sucked. I made some vows; finish “Like Magic.” Type up “Dashing Dan.” Write “Holmes Sick.” Or die trying.
It’s more of a spring break skit, but since it features the beach, here it is, Us Guys at the Beach:
September ended with nothing going on, which bled into October. No word on anything. My new Atari PC was replaced, so that meant I had to get back to work on something.
Later, word was coming out of Hollywood that Paul Ruebens was already at work re-building his career, and leaving Pee-Wee at the wayside for the time being. So, hurray for him. ABC announced it was getting out of the late night business. Not my fault!
