Going beyond the dish with Stephen Fried...and a Soprano
Following two weeks of TSNY research, it was time to dive into something new for a bit. When one of our editors approached me to write promos--like I had earlier in the internship, this semester, I got excited. There must have been over 30 promos to write. After taking care of the primetime promos, my editor called me back into his office and said "How do you feel about writing banter between the two Steves." I responded simply with a yes, but inside I got all bubbly..."Woo I was going to write scripts," I thought. I headed back to the desk that I have made my home recently in the office--at least until a new freelancer comes in and needs it, and I got to work. By the end of the day I had 8 scripts written for an upcoming show that we are piecing together...with Stephen Fried and Steve Schirripa.
The following day, we didn't get to use my scripts--as a majority of the shoot was pushed back to this coming week. BUT I did get to meet Mr. Stephen Fried and Mr. Steve Schirripa--two very talented food show hosts. Stephen even signed my script...
I look forward to the next time I get to go beyond the dish ...with each of them. Maybe I will even get to test out the vespa.
