Drive Cancelled After 4 Episodes

Once again, Fox doesn't let Nathan Fillion have a chance. After only 4 episodes have aired, Fox has cancelled Drive, the series about an illegal cross country race produced by Buffy's Tim Minear and starring Fillion. There are nine remaining episodes that haven't aired and no word on if they ever will. Fox, which cancelled Firefly after only 11 episodes had aired, continues their record of not letting shows have enough time to find an audience. Makes me wonder why any producer would ever want to work with them. more

Not bad especially considering the number of DVDs purchased for Christmas presents during that week! more

Official fan site to close January 3

Sadly, http://browncoats.serenitymovie.om will be shutting down on January 3. This probably means Universal is ending their promotion of the Serenity feature film - though it doesn't necessarily mean no more feature films will be made as I have seen rumors. An extensive site is expensive to maintain and it's not unusual for official movie sites to close a few months after the film release.
The forums will continue at Serenitymovie.org however and fan sites such as ours will continue. ... more

Have you ever had writer's block? How'd you overcome it?

Lots. The trick is to walk away, either to another script or to some good old mindless veging out. The other trick is not to give up right away 'cause you're lazy and you wanna play. But if it ain't comin', it ain't.
