…and I need it.
Sci-Fi channel announced a slate of new projects and I couldn’t be more diametrically energized by it. A few new scripted shows from established talent (Bryan Singer and David O. Russell both have shows in development), even more small cap episodes of reality TV and then this bombshell; 50% more Sci-Fi Original movies in 2009. That means that two thousand and nine will find 36 new movies about animal swarms, military lab mishaps, meteor impacts, island plane crashes, climate collapses and other generally stupid shit. To put it in relative terms, I will have 50% less sober Saturday nights in 2009 than I did in 2008.
Now the quandary. Someone has to write these movies so why not me? I’m not above penning ICE SPIDERS 2: EIGHT LEGGED FROSTBITE. I’d love to do that. HorrorsNotDead.com’s gotta eat.
Seriously though, how do I submit a script for a Sci-Fi channel original movie? I’d do it for sport. Write one a month like some kind of maddening writing workshop of D level mediocrity. We could all have ago. It’d be a blast. Roles for James Van Der Beek and Casper Van Dien don’t just write themselves…
