I went into a meeting with a major TV producer with an over-all series deal at a big studio. He brought his nine-year-old daughter into the meeting. I was midway through the pitch when the producer got a phone call.
“I’m gonna take this outside,” he said, heading for the door, “but please keep going.”
And he left me alone with his daughter.”Go on,” she said, her pencil poised on a notepad, “I’m listening.”
