Both producer/director Tim Cremin and I feel this was a hugely successful trip. Joe Manegna is amazing to work with , and he will bring GUN STORIES to a different level. I'm very proud of the fact that each of my shows have been game changers...hope to keep that roll going!
There are still some issues to resolve with the hour-long SHOOTING GALLERY, but I'm pretty sure we're on track for Q1 2012. I'll also be making some announcements tomorrow on the blog and DRTV about changes in THE BEST DEFENSE for Season 4, which we'll start filming early this summer. Raise the bar; raise the bar!
It's fun to Play Hollywood, and you can feel the pure seduction of money seeping in under the doors, but when I get home I always think back on the words of Del Gue in Jeremiah Johnson:
By God the Rocky Mountains are the marrow of the world
I ain't never seen them
But my common sense tells me
The Andes is but foothills...
And the Alps for children to climb
These here are
God's finest sculpturings
And there ain't no laws
for the brave one
And there ain't no asylum
for the crazy ones...
Think I'll go shoot some guns today...
