    I talked about this yesterday -- NBC Week. Today I thought I'd go into more depth.
    The networks are rolling out their new fall shows.

    I think.

    The Calling Card Script
    by Bono
    I've heard a lot recently about these scripts that writers break in with that never sell -- aka the calling card script. The one that everyone wants to read.
