Where do screenplays go when they die? John and Craig take a look at their movies that never were, looking for patterns among dozens of their unproduced works. What can screenwriters learn from the dead, and is it ever worth trying to resurrect these flatliners?
We also have lots of follow-up on finding a place to write, and news of an old-man-robbers movie already underway.
Yesterday’s live show will be released as an upcoming episode.
