You’ve all finally sobered up, and the realization of what you’ve done has finally hit home.
The entire entertainment industry hails you as the most brilliant set of screen writers in a generation…and you have the Emmy Awards to prove it. Your medieval fantasy series Thrones, Dragons, and Nudity has enjoyed the most successful run in the history of cable TV, consistently earning the highest Nielson ratings year after year. Home Ticket Office loves you all because you are, in every sense, their golden geese.
Now it’s over and done with. The series finale aired last night, to wildly enthusiastic approval by critics and fans alike.
You all got drunk off your asses at the after party, and your state of alcohol-induced euphoria, you did something disastrous.
You drunk emailed the network board of directors.
This morning the FedEx package arrived. Inside it were advance checks of $10 million apiece for each and every one of you, along with a hand-written note from the CEO of HTO absolutely gushing with enthusiasm over your new concept, and utterly delighted with your promise to be able to begin shooting in a week.
Seems you promised the network that you had the script all written for the pilot and first five episodes, and all that was required was to select the cast and begin shooting.
“No problem with casting,” the note had said, “Our lawyers have talked to all the principal stars of Thrones, Dragons, and Nudity, and most of them are clamoring for a part in the new series, sight unseen. How soon can I see the Pilot script?”
The concept you sold them along with the promise that it would be a hit bigger than Thrones, Dragons, and Nudity? The big idea that got you all that money in advance?
All you have is the title: “Game of Drones.”
Now what do you do?!? A quick survey reveals that nobody among your talented group–not one of you–has the slightest idea of what the hell the concept was, but everyone agreed that it sounded like a good idea at the time.
Guess you all better get started….
