Writing screenplays is fun and easy. You can do it to!
Hey, Joss. What’s up?
Shot opens on UPN OFFICES. CAPTION indicates location and DATE — it is January 15th, 2003. Camera pans into FOLLOWING SHOT on a doughy man, dressed in rumpled clothing, with messy reddish brown hair as he walks up to the door of an executive office and knocks.
They shake hands and JOSS sits in one of the chairs across from LESLIE.
Well, here’s the thing. I think I can get Sarah to sign up for one more season with Buffy.
JOSS, that’s great news!
Yeah. Listen, there’s sort of a catch.
Yeah. Remember the promise you made to me about Angel when we moved from the WB?
Yeah. The offer stands. Why?
Well, I want the same deal for Firefly. Next season. Complete control. In exchange for Sarah’s signature.
I want it on Wednesdays, with Enterprise leading into it so we can get that lead-in demographic while simultaneously displaying our complete superiority.
Jeez, Joss. I’m not sure if those guys will —
JOSS (cutting in)
As an added bonus I’ll let you continue to pretend that you have a network without me.
Aww hell, you should have led off with that, buddy! Let’s get our contracts team on this!
LESLIE picks up phone in an excited rush.
JOSS (templing his fingers)
FADE to black.
