I woke up this morning to find this Hollywood Reporter article in my in-box. I thought I had stumbled onto a porn site. I actually don’t even want to repeat the headline. You can read it for yourself. But suffice to say, it’s time to take my own industry to the woodshed.
I have made much of my living from television over the last 25 years. I was a staff writer-producer on three different network series, over ten different network seasons, and I have written scripts for six different shows, three dramas, three comedies. I’ve drawn a paycheck on something like 250 episodes. So don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying the bite the hand that has fed me — and my five ravenous kids — for so many years.
