Yay, the updates are in!

I'm wandering betwixt Castle and The Good Wife.

Have a funny one for Castle and an 'oh, no she didn't' for TGW.

Just for Disney and WOTV.

Not sure which spec yet.

I'm catching up on Castle, figured it would be a good one to spec for. Lots of ideas there!

Working on a JUSTIFIED. Maybe an ARCHER next (thank you FX!)


I understand the CASTLE love, but not sure how many seasons that show has left. MENTALIST will likely be around longer.

Love me some Justified and Archer, but they're two different kettles of fish. Which is your primary writing style?

Re: Castle, it's got at least five seasons in it, and they're in season three. The Mentalist is heavily specced, but not as well written as Castle, IMHO.

I'm primarily comedy but want a drama spec in the portfolio. Castle would probably be more my style given its tone, but Justified is my favorite show on TV so can't argue with that. Don't have an animation sample so Archer could be good. Was thinking of doing a Burn Notice as I've heard that's liked by some program readers and may do that instead of Archer.

I hadn't heard Mentalist was heavily done (again, comedy...). I just had a friend spec it and he's about the first person I know out here who has. The website linked by the OP has Castle as a "four star" choice and Mentalist a five so I think either is a strong choice.

Would you do your Good Wife next? Heard that's a good sample

No mention of Supernatural, is it just that far off the radar to not even bother with?

I'm taking a gamble and speccing Men Of A Certain Age. It's a well written show and the ratings are good for a cable show. Ray Ramano helps with visibility....well that's what I'm hoping.
