Can Challenging Sci-Fi Shows Make It On Network TV? [A Tweet-Archive Episode]
Welcome to a new episode of Tweet-Archive!
Today screenwriter Josh Friedman makes us the honor with a “tweet-log” about The Sarah Connors Chronicles, his feelings toward Fox for canceling it, the reasons why Sci-Fi shows and Network TV have difficulties to be a good match and why TSCC turned the way it did.
Friedman, who is also behind The Black Dahlia and War of the Worlds, talks Battle Star Galactica, Lost and why he thinks a network show can’t be both complicated in its concept and its execution.
Below is Friedman full tweet-log ( I feel a whole new vocabulary needs to be reinvented now), stay til the end to download the Voice Over originally written for Sarah Connor to open the Pilot but that didn’t make the cut.
For those asking, here’s original opening Sarah Connor voiceover.db.tt/tiMbS2fp
