What would be some of the properties writers on Done Deal would like to work on?
Doesn't really happen--exceedingly rare if at all. The know their own libraries extremely well and I can guarantee they are gone over with a fine tooth comb fairly regularly. I sat in a room at MGM a while back with two massive binders that contained titles and one liners of every single property that they own--I think there were something like six thousand in all took me a half day to go through them.

The few that I found that were interesting were already back in development in some fashion.

I did learn however that MGM owns a mountain of incredibly, unbelievably shitty movies.
