Yesterday I was sent an email from a man at heretv.com. He asked me if I’d send my phone number so the VP of original programming could speak to me. I’d never heard of this place. But I looked it up, saw that it was real.
Normally, I would forward a request like this to my agent. But she’s in France. So I sent the number and within moments the writer of the email called me.
The company is interested in my series of Lauren Laurano books. He said she wanted to ask me some preliminary questions. We set up a phone conversation for today at 11:30 am.
I don’t get excited about these things. My friends do, if I tell them. I’ve been at this juncture all too often. It would be nice if this happened. More than nice. I’m sure it wouldn’t mean a lot of money, but I’d like to see that series on TV. What writer wouldn’t?
I’ve always felt those characters would make a good series and would be different. I knew the networks were out, but at one time I thought HBO might be interested. They weren’t.
Now comes this nibble. I hope she doesn’t ask me who I’d like to see play the main roles as I never cast a book in my head.
