Wade and I are currently writing on Matt Nix's awesome new Fox series called Jack & Dan.

Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks as cops. They don't fight crime. Crime fights them.

It's gonna be incredible.

ON NEWSTANDS: Script Magazine (Nov/Dec 09)

The latest issue of Script Magazine is out!

For this issue, I decided to go way back into the recesses of our career horror stories to reminisce on the writing process of our first celebrity look-alike reality game show.

Yes, that's right, I said the FIRST.

Over the years, we were actually hired to write THREE different celebrity look-alike reality game shows: all were on different networks, with different producers... but, not surprisingly, all had exactly the same result: unmitigated disaster followed by subsequent (and immediate) cancellation.

But while working on the first of these masterpieces, Wade and I were truly inspired to strive for mediocrity thanks to the producer's motivating words.

Check out the full tale-- Aspiring To Passable --in this month's issue.

Paul and I also collaborated on another little Easter Egg tucked away in this same issue. Enjoy!
