Remember back when I talked about parasite PINOs - Producers In Name Only - and how their attachment to your script can often cause more headaches than benefits? Well, I recently came across an amazing series of blog posts from writer Doug Richardson.
As Doug introduces the story:
I’ve written about theft before. Both stories and ideas nicked by scumbag producers without consequence. What follows is an epic tale. All true. With multiple endings that, to this day, still leave me and others gob-smacked.
Set aside some time and read this. It's an amusing, at times barely believable story. But it's also a cautionary tale. Some of you may have already read it. For those that haven't, I do not
DARE even think of ruining all the twists and turns in this epic.
