When I was twelve years old—bear with me, this will get relevant soon—I and a number of friends and relatives went to see The Addams Family at a well-appointed movie theater in San Diego. I had already seen the movie once, but with compromises being what they are this was the only movie everyone could agree to see and so I agreed, having liked it the first time, to see it again. Before the trailers started, a friend of my dad’s who was a writer and wore leather jackets and was cool, turned to me and asked me how I’d liked the picture the first time, and added that I must have liked it if I was agreeable to see it again. “It’s fun,” I said. But because I wanted him to think I was smart—cool was a bridge too far; this was, after all, a man who owned more than one leather jacket and whose girlfriend was blonde and rather hyperbolic in appearance—I added “But the plot’s kind of stupid.” Soon the lights went down, the movie commenced, and was fun (again). And my dad’s cool writer friend turned to me approvingly and said, “That was fun. And you were right about the plot.” And I felt smart. And almost cool.

Is it really accurate to talk about production when the theme is TV? For production, it smells of fixed procedures, known milestones, and defined requirements - while TV is being developed according to a plan that is constantly changing as one learns from its TV production.
