My job is a lot of fun. There are many different reasons for this, but one is because I get to talk about TV all day long. I am a student of television and nothing makes me happier than having a meeting with a writer or director and 90 minutes later I look at the clock and it feels as if only 5 minutes has gone by.
Recently, an actor, now director, from one of my all time favorite shows, came into meet with me. I was very nervous. I kept telling one of my co-workers how nervous I was. What if I had nothing to say to this person? What if I wasn’t able to get across how seminal this particular show was to my life, and it is thanks to that show that I was sitting across from him today. Needless to say, the meeting was exactly as I had hoped it would be. There we were, two “TV professionals,” swapping stories and discussing how television played such a big part in our lives. And thanks to his teenage daughters, he was a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars. Nothing like discussing the mystery of “A” with someone who is part of TV history.
