LAist Watches: Project Greenlight
If you've ever sat through a really bad movie and thought to yourself "man, who decided to make this piece of crap?" We have a bit of good news for you. Something that might shed some light on this all-to-common occurance. Yes, that's right, the new season of Project Greenlight is now running on Bravo. Yes, we said Bravo.
No more HBO for Ben and Matt. Apparently, the good folks at HBO have their hands full making great shows like Deadwood or even The Sopranos (don't get us started on the downhill slide of that show). So, they have given the boys from Boston the boot over to Bravo.
Project Greenlight is a show where relatively smart people decide to make a script that they don't really like all that much and then pick a Director they obviously hate and that nobody wants to support. Then, they rush the whole thing into production and wonder why it turns out like complete crap.
We sincerely hope Hollywood doesn't work that way. Well, come to think of it, Hollywood pretty much does work that way. That almost explains "Soul Plane" or "XXX". . . Almost.
