I am off today for Berlin, where I will be staying until FAST TRACK is finished, which will be some time in mid-July. It’s going to be a busy and exciting time…and I will try to share it with you whenever I can.
We have offers going out to some American actors on Monday and casting for the other principal parts continues in Germany, France and the U.K. over the next week or so. And, of course, there’s all the prep work that’s still on-going to make our May 23 start date.
In the midst of all of that, I have to finish my fifth MONK novel, MR. MONK IN OUTER SPACE, and come up with the plot for MONK #6 (don’t be surprised if it ends up being MR. MONK GOES TO GERMANY) and teach another Writers Room course for Action Concept & MediaXChange in charming Lohr. At least all of that activity will keep me so busy that the weeks without my family will pass quickly. My family is joining me in mid-June and after the movie wraps, we will probably go to France for a couple of weeks to visit my in-laws.
So consider this my last state-side post for a while…

Thank you for your interesting posts on Fast Track. Working as a script consultant for Austrian and German tv and film, it is really fascinating for me to see this business from your perspective as a non-german writer and producer. I hope you will have time for a post on the differences between working in the American and the German system some time!
Lots of luck with your pilot. Even though you will be busy, I know you’ll miss the family.
I wish you a nice time in Germany, Lee!.. and success and fun with “Fast Track”!..
