Off the Lot

I really want to like Fox's new show On the Lot. I want it to be Project Greenlight, which I love dearly. However, it's not. Where on PG you get to see the full movie making process, OTL just shows you some filmmakers and makes us, America, pick one based on some contrived criteria. I don't care about these people, regardless of how good they may be. I want to see the inner-workings of a real movie set. This show stops right at the money shot.

And, for the love of god, Gary Marshall, we get it that we need more women directors. We got it the first time you said it. We got it the 15th time you said it. We love the movies you've made. Really. Shut up.

The good news is that Hell's Kitchen starts again soon. God I love Gordon Ramsey. Can I be straight and still say that? I think I can.
