2010: The Directors and Writers Thread

Recommended Posts

Isn't Jamey the one who has been reporting stuff that AMC has denied, but ended up being true, like the move to LA? If so, then I believe him

Yeah, he was the first one that reported the AMC move to LA and Broderick re-joining.

I'm still lost as to why Frons would hire someone to be a temporary transition head-writer when he could have let someone on the existing team do that and not have to pay for someone else.

AMC has such a small writing team that maybe it just wasn't possible to have one of current associate headwriters take over headwriting duties and then only have 2 associate headwriters to do the thrusts (or whatever they do now instead of detailed breakdowns).

I don't know...I still prefer to believe that LB and ABC went into this arrangement agreeing that it could lead to a more permanent deal if they found they could co-exist.

That's what I believe too. Before, Frons always seemed to plan out the HW changes, he always had someone waiting in the 'wings' -- writing a story bible and ready to take over when he officially axed a writer. In this case, I think the decision to fire CP was made rather suddenly and LB was hired rather quickly. McTavish was writing her bible when Rayfield/Cascio were still in place, Pratt was writing when B&E were still in place, and Alden was writing when McTavish was still in place (of course Alden didn't work out in the end). I'm thinking that LB is "auditioning" right now and will stick around if she and Frons see eye-to-eye.

Though, I'm still clinging to hope that someone will come along and try to save Y&R in 2010, it's not going to be this current writing team though, for sure.

I don't think they really care. Why? Because they earned their millions and can retire with no regrets. With each day that passes, they earn more than they thought they ever would.

My thing is, I they can keep Maria as some figurehead for all I care, but they should have the common sense to fire Sheffer, Hamner, Rauch, and replace writers on the writing staff and make it a little smaller and more coherent.

I guess we'll see when Sheffer's contract is up in May/June.

But yeah, maybe it's not realistic and no one really cares about the show and the horrible writing they're putting out to Y&R fans.

More AMC tidbits:

- Shelley Curtis signed a contract w/ AMC, and will be directing full-time.

- Casey Childs spent last week in LA and will be spending the next week in LA. He's helping in the transition. Not sure if he directed any episodes. But after this next week, he's back in NY and won't be continuing the show.

Adios Mr. Childs!

I think Childs missed his calling as an Elliot Gould impersonator. He can't direct for beans.

Good pickup by AMC with Shelley Curtis. Glad she is back.

Casey Child was a decent director. Not great but not horrible but I will not miss him.

SWISH cutting limes! SWISH sliding drinks across the bar! SWISH wobbly close up of a ConFusion monitor! SWISH random extras mouthing conversations... :rolleyes:

LOL. I think he was trying too hard to project his hardon for The City onto AMC.
