This is amazing. Make sure they give you a TON on the front end, because I’m sure you already know, but streamers don’t do residuals or territory royalties, etc… and I guarantee, YOU and YOUR name will be what sells this internationally.

Make sure you get what you’re worth. Which is a windfall.

Whoooaaaaaaaaaa. It's been don't know how long, 15 years or more maybe, that I've been following you. Books, interviews, podcasts. And yet, every time you're involved in a new project I can't stop shuffling my feet under the desk like a toddler on Christmas Eve.

Congratulations, Chuck.

Given that the film adaptation of ‘Bird Box’ premiered on Netflix to great success, I’d say there’s a good chance Netflix will take an interest in the series. Having the author of ‘Bird Box’ be the focus of the first episode -- regardless of whether it was a strategic move or coincidence -- works in favour of the series proposition, I’d wager.

I’ll keep tabs on its progress and, regardless of whatever home the series finds, I’ll be bingeing it when it comes out.

P.S. Really nice of you to say “our episode”. I mean, I’m assuming that’s a pleasant way of you incorporating everyone at Story Night, on this SubStack, etc, into the episode; though I could be wrong and that could be a rather unfortunate Freudian slip that suggests there’s maybe more than one personality in that head of yours.

Amazing! Hope this goes through. Madness & Writers, the title hooks me. Can I also say its a little soothing to hear that even 'been there, done it' writers deal with this? Hell, whenever I feel like writing a scene resembles visiting a crappy dentist, I remember that Aaron Sorkin once broke his nose while writing.

I'll make sure to write something so offensive that I won't get showcased on the episode.

I hope that this gets through the production process and becomes an actual show. That way everyone can see the great work Chuck and company are doing to grow the creativity community in Portland and across the US.
