It Ain't Gonna Happen

That's Hollywood! As terrific an idea that "Special Unit" is, it is not going to be picked up. Unfortunately, a TV pilot is all it will ever be. The whys and wherefores don't really matter, the bottom line is, one of the coolest things that could have ever happened to bolster the image of people with disabilities isn't going to be. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's a show about people with disabilities. I just spoke with Christopher Titus and he is greatly disappointed, as am I. Suffice it to say, he did everything he could possibly do to make it happen. My hat's off to him for coming up with the concept and taking it as far as he did.

I could easily go into a tirade about a it, but, as Avery Schreiber once told me, the best four-letter word I can use in this situation is NEXT!

    Sorry about that, Jim. I would have liked to have seen that show.
    Why can't they show it - the pilot at least - to the public and let us decide?
    Well, hang in there. And best of luck on your next endeavor.

    Jim, So sorry to hear the news.
    Hang in there...

    I think your attitude is perfect. When we say Next, we open the door for something bigger and better to align. You had the concept, you gave it a work out and the next time will be golden.
