For more than year and a half, I've been working on this show. Writing, directing, and producing it. God, you never know how much time things take until you do them. We're launching the pilot online in 3 days and I'm still editing the small details. And that's why I love deadlines, because they make you f'**ing finish! A deadline makes you not sleep, see your friends, and it drives you CRAZY, but IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT! Now I'm trying to sell it and I'm excited, anxious, and freaked out.
I've spent so long knowing everything about this pilot that I read episode 2 for fun. I so badly want this show to get picked up by a network. I believe in this and I'm not the only one. And I know if the show gets sold and picked up, things have to change and I totally want that. For one, let's get a higher budget! Because we made this for next to nothing.
I want this show to change and grow and be something alive. That's what life is all about. And the thing is, I've written ten movies, four pilots, and about six specs of other shows, but for some reason, and I can't even figure out why, this one is my favorite. I just know I want to always be a part of it and whoever buys it, I'm gonna work my ass of them to make this show succeed. "Get Educated" is something I want to write, read, and see more of. It reminds me of how happy I was when "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation" were on the air and how much I cared about those characters. I followed them week after week for years. April and Andy's wedding was better than any real wedding in my life. And Jim and Pam's first kiss is way more memorable than my first kiss. I loved those shows and I love this. So let's see what happens...
