SHOOT ME NOW

Is 'Friends' the end? (Bill Keveney, USA Today, 4/22/04)

It's impossible to predict what fall will bring; comedy pilots are still being taped and evaluated. But some candidates [to be the next big comedy] already are drawing attention. . . .

NBC also has invested heavily in Father of the Pride, DreamWorks' animated look at a family of white lions working for Siegfried & Roy.

I was going to say something witty, but I give up - with a set-up like that, do you NEED a joke?

Look for the mauling episode to be part of the November sweeps...

As I have read the entire site, I understand that.

About two years ago, I got a peek at an actual Hollywood Pitch Sheet (Baby).

Believe me, Father of the Pride is nothing compared to the utterly stupid High Concept Ideas I saw on that sheet.
