Hello class. Here's another installment of Comedy 101. Today I'm showing an episode of ALMOST PERFECT, the mid '90s CBS series starring Nancy Travis I co-created with David Isaacs and Robin Schiff. Monday I'll discuss how we broke this story. Whether you're an aspiring sitcom writer or just interested in how they are made, this is a rare glimpse into the thought process that goes in to making just one episode of network TV. So watch the show and come back Monday.
To set it up: Kim (Nancy Travis) is the Executive Producer/Head Writer of a gritty network cop show called BLUE JUSTICE. Her boyfriend, Mike is not in the biz. He's an assistant DA. The show starts in black. You have to fast forward. The show begins :27 seconds in. I know there's a way to edit out all the blacks but I don't know how to do it.
