I’m about a hundred kilometres from Calgary, descending through 25,000 feet, nearly four hours into this plane ride. I’m on my way home for a few days.
There’s something about traveling that focuses the mind. With clarity, I can see my two most immediate objectives. Green light ‘Highwaymen’. Get ‘Hog Town’ into development. To this end, I plan to finish the next episode and write the third before I leave Regina. Three episodes gets ‘Hog Town’ ready for market.
With the rest of my time, I intend to take Roughriders GM, Brendan Taman up on his offer to drop by and soak up the place. Need to collect some football stories. Need to get a feel for the place. It’s been a few years, and I wasn’t paying as close attention last time I walked those halls.
By the time I return, I hope to have a date set for my TSN meeting. CFL congress is in Toronto at the end of the month, and with a little luck, I’ll be able to soak that up too.
Can you imagine? Two scripted series. Me. I came to Toronto to get myself into someone else’s writing room. I’m starting to believe that I can start hiring people into mine.
