I found an email address for the assistant producer and sent an email telling him how delightful I am, and I left a phone number. My phone rang an hour later. He was a ton of fun and our talks were sometimes silly, sometimes disturbing, but mostly fun. I spoke to my contact at the show twice and soon received a mammoth sized file to read, complete and sign. Much of it was legal and I was sworn to secrecy at that point forward. So, let's just say a couple things.....
1. They didn't pick me
2. They really should have *cheese smile face*
3. Agree to disagree.
This is a chunk of my audition tape, which they may or may not have asked me to send in. I can't tell you if they asked because that was covered in the fat stack of paperwork I signed.
I haven't seen the show yet, but it's on Tivo for when I get a writing break. It sounded like lots of fun for me solving crimes, and a couple months of Hubsy playing the role of stay-at-home-dad. That sounded like fun for me too.
The point of this post is this: Do something silly today. This week. This year. Do something you love. Something bigger than normal. Make a memory you can point at later, possibly over drinks with friends, and say "I can't believe I did that." No, I didn't get on national television, but I had a ton of fun dreaming, making my first ever audition tape, and now sharing that with you.
I still think they should've made me their undercover killer. I bet I could've gotten away with it.
