Default For Those Who've Never Worked In The Biz....

... and are curious, what a studio exec or a producer may be like (especially behind closed doors)????

If you want an excellent example of this type of "creature," take a look at Bravo's "Blow Out," a reality show about a Bplus level hair stylist in Beverly Hills named Jonathan Antin. I'm serious! This show cracks me up, but more importantly, it's an excellent example of a needy, insecure, bark is worse than bite, typical Hollywood-industry type.

Now, the other example would be the "monster" -- who not only barks, bites but chews -- but this is really only 10% of the people in the biz (many of which are really, really powerful - who, most of us, will most likely never hang out with on a continual basis, lucky us!).

Really good "research", guys!

P.S. I worked in the biz for a decade as an Exec Asst for some of the biggest producers, studio execs, heads of company's, even an actress (when I started out), so I know what I'm talking about!

And now you're @ Bravo plugging the show? If that was your only experience after a decade in the biz, I'm sorry...

Hey Poison Ivy (or should I say "bitter ivy")... you sorta missed the point here, I was just suggesting that the character traits in this guy are very similiar to Hollywood types I've worked with through the years and no, I don't work at Bravo or have anything to do with the show (it's just good cheesy fun!). I'm actually, gasp, a working writer (after years and years of paying my dues, thank you very much). But I do find it odd that you would put down someone who worked at Bravo... isn't that what we're all trying to do, work in the biz? But I'm sure someone like you, who reads this site, is busy running Sony Pictures on their spare time. Lucky you!

"Dude, that's cold." Hey, you were the one dissing on my legitimate work experience! I don't know what your experience is, but you just have to be careful and not come off as so cocky. Again, there are worse things than to work at Bravo.

No, not really, especially if you write for them... sigh. I know.
