Here's what Valerie has to say: 

"Well, I know you all have been sitting at home, losing sleep, wondering, "What happened to that film Offer & Compromise, that Valerie was directing?" (kidding) I can't tell you everything now but there is big stuff happening in August. In the meantime I need a favor. Please go to our Offer & Compromise: The Movie Facebook page and LIKE it. As you all know we need as many likes as possible to create a great SN* base for the movie. I really appreciate the help. Let me know how I can return the favor. xoxo *Social Network - If you are like me you had no idea what the initials stood for."

Pictures of the Week


Cynthia Gibb posing with then boyfriend Christopher Atkins at a première in 1983. Was Cynthia borrowing her "Fame" wardrobe? She wore that dress in the Fame looks at the music of 1983 concert. Maybe the shows budget was so tight she had to wear her own clothes!

Friendship Day - Script


The "Friendship Day" Script from season 2 is now available to read online or download.

Interesting that the script has Coco featured in it but Erica wasn't in the episode. She was presumably replaced by Smokey although not all of the scripted lines were given to her. which maybe why the script was running short and producer Bill Blinn asked Lee to come up with "Murphy's Blues". That scene isn't in the script.

With thanks to Emmanuelle for sharing this with us.
