"I saw that someone gifted your baby a pair of itty bitty Converse. Your baby doesn't even listen to The Strokes so I don't know why they did that."
"Anything for a friend."
"If I can't stand at the most inconvenient location, I will die."
Spec for One for the Road. Heavy on speculation (as the show does not exist yet), but it is a project I was drawn to from the announcement in Variety. This was a writing exercise for a concept I was intrigued by. This is a display of skillset and writing strength in hopes of being hired to write for the show.
Themes taken from the show's short synopsis: "[...] candid and intimate story of a talented but dysfunctional band struggling to survive the rapidly changing landscape of independent music in the early 2000s." Character inspiration taken from Lizzy Goodman's Meet Me in The Bathroom. These characters exist for the sake of the spec and nothing else.
