progress report – "the AP project"


I’ll give in a little to what I’ve been so distracted with lately. I can’t give too many details because I keep hearing similar ideas on TV that have come and gone. Long story short, it’s a sitcom about my experiences and adventures at SUNY Purchase. I’m pretty sure I can mine 2 seasons out of the 2 semesters I spent there if I had the chance. I wrote plot lines for 24 episodes, and I just finished mapping out the characters. Sunday I started outlining the pilot episode, but after all the blog reading I’ve been doing, I think I might freestyle it. It’s not like I don’t have an idea already of what I want to happen in the first episode. It’s mostly an introductory. It’s a pilot episode. So I’m not necessarily limited to 22 minutes. But that’s my goal. Besides, I only need a rough draft to get me going. I can devote January to editing or something.

I won’t reveal the title for my college sitcom. I’m not even going to discuss how I want it to be shot. But I will say that if you know a few of my favorite shows, you may have an idea. One of them is actually the first show that discouraged me from even continuing the project by the name of Undeclared. Awesome show and it’s too bad it was cancelled. I could seriously relate to it and so could my sitcom, BUT I don’t want mine to feel like a carbon copy. I don’t think it will, except for one storyline involving locked doors and “Do Not Enter” signals between roommates, but that’s fine. Arrested Development is another one that I have a serious love for. I enjoy writing while having that play in the background. I’m also going to cite Seinfeld for the mere fact that when Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld started the show, they didn’t really know how to write a sitcom. I don’t either, but that’s not going to stop me from putting the story on paper in script form.

Also, I haven’t had coffee for the past 2 weeks. My friend was sick and all she wanted was tea, and I hadn’t had tea in a while so I felt like drinking tea too. I told her no coffee until she felt better. Guess what happened. Go on guess! Too late, I’ll tell you, I got sick, so all I’ve been drinking is lemon tea or honey tea (when I’m home). What the stank is wrong with Dunkin Donuts that they can’t make honey tea??? It’s delicious and soothing for wounded throats. Sorry, but that upsets me. That should probably be my next poll question. Which tea do you better, honey or lemon? Or honey and lemon? (Don’t knock it ’til you try it.) I’ll pass on the green tea, thanks. (Tried it, didn’t like it.) And Tree will pass on all kinds of tea, it just wants water from now on. I know that was my fault, but hey, it sounded like a good idea at the time.


Hang in there Tree.

    Oh man, you don’t like green tea? But it’s so yummy! Well, you drink lots of liquids and plenty of that tasty honey and you’ll be feeling better in no time! Take care.
