Hey, folks, I've got a great idea for a new Star Trek series. I can't talk about it yet- hush-hush, y'know. But I'm going to talk to CBS sometime in the indefinite future and get their permission to take over one of their money-making franchises.
Now, I've got no experience (except for the two years of telecommunicative arts I majored in back in '77-'79). But my idea is rock solid.
So, keep it hush-hush, okay?
I'll let you know what comes of it.
If you've ever seen "The Player", that is basically how Hollywood works, believe it or not, save for the honesty about the credentials.
