Paul Rose reached the stage of getting a non-broadcast pilot made of his single camera comedy "Now the Weather" but it wasn't picked up by the networks.
"Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who said something nice about the 'Now The Weather' script extracts. I've lost track of all the comments, so apologies if I've not thanked you personally.
It's a big shame, naturally, but we got turned down by Channel 4 back in January, so it's hardly new news for us. It's been getting interest from other broadcasters ever since - which is why I've not been able to talk about it - just not sufficient interest from the people who make the final decisions.
It happens. It's the nature of the game. You just have to move onto your next thing, and hope that eventually your tastes will gel with those of the channel controllers.
In the meantime... I've plenty of other stuff going on. Not all of which I can yet talk about. Onwards and upwards."
You can read the script extracts on the links below:
Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4
