- The first producer to ask LB to pitch him is still in orbit.
- In 1976, a William Morris agent turned LB down. The agency is still waiting for all his body parts to turn up.
- LB won’t read your damn script because he’s already written it.
- God calls LB for notes. And LB’s plenty pissed off because He’s not implementing them.
A Wake-Up Call for Women Producers
By Barbara Sutton Masry
March may be Women’s History Month, but we should be working actively all year to have more women’s work on film and on stages. We cannot accept the lowly statistics without activism. It’s not that women aren’t writing enough or aren’t trying to get produced. There are a lot of closed doors. Rather than belabor why, we need to cultivate more women producers.
Let’s review what we’ve been taught as young girls that may not have been the best advice. I’m willing to use myself as a guinea pig.
But, with the exception of the 1st placer, the judges’ names feature more prominently in the P.R.
No wonder we all think that being in showbiz is the best thing there is. (And it is! really! Yum!)
