Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

Random Question

Sorry to be so random today (see post below), but something is irking me and I am wondering if anyone has any more information than I do.

If you have opened a web page lately chances are you have seen the banner for Scarlet, the "new hit series." Desiring more information, like what does it mean to be "the director of Smallville and Supernatural," I have searched YouTube, IMDb, and the series official web site. Guess what I found: more questions!

I found "the director." His name is David Nutter, and he directed the pilot episodes of both those series as well as many others. According to the self-serving press release on the Scarlet site, every pilot he has developed in the last ten years has been made into a series. But I only found out the names of his other projects by looking up his name on IMBd. He is supposedly the "king of TV" and I had to do all that work.

But, this is the only thing I can figure out. The trailer on YouTube/the official site looks like it is a parody or a spoof, not a real show. There is no network listed anywhere that this show will be premiering on, supposedly in two weeks. I cannot figure out if this is a real show or not and it is really bugging me. I happened to be watching the pilot of Supernatural over the weekend, and I thought to myself just how good it is, that it is one of the better pilots out there, so if this thing is a real show, there is a possibility it could be worthwhile, but every attempt I make to find out more information only leads to more dead ends.

Anyone know anything?
