WE'RE NOT GOING TO GUAM ARE WE?

This, despite my rewatching of seasons two through five of Lost has nothing to do with Lost. It does, however have to do with pilots and not going where you thought you were.



I've got this meeting coming up and it got me thinking about what material might be a good fit for it and found myself coming up with new stuff that, maybe, would be a good fit. Thus, with eight pages (or so) left on my current pilot project, I found myself outlining two completely different pilot. Not one, but two. Hell, I even wrote six pages of a first draft on one of them just to start getting deeper into the voices and the feel of the piece.

What's more, that piece is something I'd never seriously considered before. A half-hour, single-camera. I hesitate to call it a sitcom. It's more a premium cable channel dramedy kinda thing along the lines of the Showtime stuff or HBO. I'm keeping the title to myself.

The other one, the one-hour one. It's called Mine. And somewhere in there, I'm gonna write my Good Wife spec, but not until the season is over. Sometimes you take the page, sometimes the page takes you. Definitely no down-time between projects this year.
