a shameless plug from one of my LA friends, who has finally gotten her first credited writing job on network TV. it's on a midseason show called "4 kings" starring seth green. her email to her friends:
Hello, all. Laura Gutin here with a brief note regarding the premiere of "Four Kings" on NBC this Thursday at 8:30pm (7:30pm Central).
As you may or may not know, I was a staff writer on "Four Kings" this season, so I'm really excited for the show to be on the air. It's about four guys in their mid-20's who have been friends since childhood and are now living in New York, and it stars Seth Green, among others. The show was a lot of fun to work on, and I think it's pretty funny. I hope you'll check it out, and if you like it, you'll set your watches (or your TiVos) for 8:30 on Thursdays. Don't you want me to have a job next season?
One more thing: due to some weird NBC rules, staff writers are not credited on shows. Yup, I got a credit when I was a production assistant picking up CPK and dropping off scripts, but now as a staff writer I don't get a credit. It's a bummer, but I assure you I wrote on the show this season, and when my own episode airs, it will have my name right at the beginning.
I hope everyone is having a good year so far, and I hope you enjoy the show!
