Back to the future this week, and a visit to a world that’s not ours anymore. Showing such a world on a TV budget and schedule is difficult enough, but this show had the added feature of needing much of the cast arrive on set three hours early every day just to prepare. Nothing like a challenge, is there? Five quotes:
“Your cities… death and destruction. We don’t want them. We don’t even want their memory.”
“The producers would get awfully upset if we didn’t have some kind of action going on in the first five pages of a script.”
…was so sure the idea would attract viewers that they actually bought the series for television with no pilot at all.
“I ordered spare ribs one day, and I simply couldn’t manage them. They sat on my plate and I just looked at them.”
“But it was real cold, and after a couple of hours, they basically had to haul us out because we were getting close to hypothermia.”
Work as hard as you want, and your show may still not be successful. But the effort is definitely worth it, as you’ll see this week on Friday @ 8/7 Central!
