    Ian, if this is uncool, forgive me and feel free to move...

    Guys, I just wanted to let you know that THIS WEDNESDAY at 10 PM on the USA Network, yours truly will have material on the air. 'Though I was only recently hired as a staff writer for In Plain Sight, they recorded the bookend voice-overs I wrote for episode 4, which airs this week.

    My head's still spinning with this new gig, and it's a break I've worked for for a long, looooong time, but I wanted to share at least that with the board, a community that has kept me going, and writing, for many years. Thanks for listening, sorry for the non-football post.

    P.S. "Friday" Out-Takes' actually comes out on Wednesday this week, with our annual "mocking the Patriots" edition!

    Excellent news, and congratulations! I understand exactly how hard that nut is to crack, and anytime you can get a foot in the door at any level is a good thing.

    Hope this pans out for you, and looking forward to the next column. :)

    Respects,

    Way to go! Thankfully, you're not to blame for the horrible writing on FlashForward.

    Tell us, is Mary hot in person? :)

    Mary's a funny, smart tough cookie-type. She works really, really hard and wants the show to be better and better. Very attractive, on-screen and off.

    Exactly! Use the fact that you're a big Patriots guy since exec producer and star Jeffrey Donovan is a big Pats fan. Networking.

    Hey, congratulations! :cool:

    As a young writer, I understand how difficult it is to make your way in any area of the industry. I've enjoyed Out Takes over the last several months, and I'm glad to hear your continued dedication has paid off. Keep up the good work!

    Congratulations!

    I've enjoyed the program since it started a couple of years ago and agree that Mary McCormack is terrific. Sounds like a great opportunity - best of luck.

    I really can't see how that show will last more than one season.

    And congrats, patsox. That's one hell of an opportunity.

    Thanks for the shout outs, everyone. Really appreciate it - and glad so many of you are already viewers. It's been a long, looooong road for me, and I'm really happy to have gotten this break.

    Cool. Actual creative writing as a gig.

    I actually have a Reality TV show proposal in the works.

    It involves taking 12 Reality TV Producers and bringing them to a deserted island and leaving them there.

    I haven't really developed it any further than that at this point. Frankly, I think it might be perfect just like that. Heck we don't even need cameras.

    LOL, that's a funny pitch. I promise not to steal it.
