Today I am debuting a new series called The Crafty Life. In the past month I worked on two TV shows – one a first-year drama/thriller, the other a comedy pilot – on craft services. With this new series I will write about what it’s like to work on a television show for someone without a film background.
“I have one diva request … ” the actress started.
My ears perked. The slender, 5-foot-10 brunette standing before me starred on one of my favorite shows. On this day, we worked together on the pilot episode of a show set to debut this fall on network television. I served as a production assistant on craft services, she starred as the sitcom star’s wife. As we stood face-to-face, I wanted to tell her how much I enjoyed her other show, but that would be awkward and unprofessional, and besides there was her pending request.
