Doug & Cindy

Scripts are like children – there’s always one you want to sell.

Of the half-hours I’ve written, one especially stands out. Everyone who reads this spec pilot seems to have the same two responses: very good, and it can never get made. (Which seems to be proving true.)

I wrote it because once I had the idea of exploring the married lives of Cind- erella and Prince Charming twenty years later, I couldn’t not. Read it here.
