See, this is why Lifetime should have accepted my pitch for my female-driven character ensemble comedy...and by "accepted" I mean "listened to even though I don't have an agent yet."Fear not. Tomorrow is another show.
It should have been Heroes.
Funny that I'm working on a character driven drama with a female lead. Wonder if it helps that it's a procedural. :)
Whattttttttttttttttt!? It's been cancelled? :[ No! I thought it might be coming, but not so soon... Shit. I loved that show, and last week's episode was especially good. Horrible news.I don't understand how drivel like Moonlight gets an entire season and a quirky show like this only gets a few episodes.
Add to this the fact Joss Whedon is going to network hell again trying to give us his usual dose of genius. Why won't they just let the man tell his stories. I hate stand-alone episodes each week. I prefer the big sweeping storylines, because frankly I prefer to watch my favourite shows on DVD or Tivo'd. TV has the ability to tell a story over 22 hours, instead of 2 ... I really wish they would just do that instead of going for crappy procedurals like Fringe etc.Having said all that, I have never seen The Ex List, but it doesn't sound like my kind of show.
Hey, let's not give up hope on female-driven character dramas. It's not like they're space westerns. Or car racing shows. Or really anything Tim Minear's been involved with post-Angel.
Just write a female-driven script where her ultimate mission is something OTHER than finding a guy to complete her - and you'll be ahead of the game.You could also try to make her a normal weight and brunette...but perhaps we should just take it one step at time...
Ax it now, after flooding the box with commercials for the show? Well, I guess if there are no immediate results, you do what you got to do.
Should I feel bad that I just couldn't get the appeal of the show?
