It seems that a pilot, at least, has been ordered, right? I need tumblr CSI to refocus the blurred out corner for us. It looks like there is a 2017 date on the last line. Perhaps a production date? I also wonder what the difference is between the black binding and red binding for the scripts--could it be cast vs. director/crew?
So excited for Darren and the rest of the team involved with this show!
Oh, you're right of course! I didn't even look at the small print at the bottom left corner of the pic. Good thinking, Lilikoiluv! You are also using your detective skills. If you come across the tumblr CSI, can you please post it here? Maybe they can bring the small print into a clearer image.
Yes, I would think that this means that a pilot was ordered to be filmed/produced.
(I'm wondering why isn't Darren tweeting?)
I see on the top line of the fuzzy print at the bottom left corner: The first word (top line) appears to be "FOX." Then: "The Jackal Group," which if I remember correctly, was the production group named in the media articles about Royalties.
I could be imagining it, but on the second line, the first word appears to be "Pilot." Can't make out the 2nd word of the second line. The third word of the second line appears to be "Draft."
And you're right of course, Lilikoiluv! The third line appears to be a date. It's awfully fuzzy. I think I see the "17" at the end. Not sure about the first 4 numbers, guessing "02-14"? Maybe the date for the cast to do a reading? I have read several articles where they say the filming of pilots usually happen February - April, usually March - April, so maybe it is a film date, as you said.
And your logic seems good, in terms of the black binding versus the red binding.
Remember this, you guys? Lin and Lilikoiluv posted this (November 23 and November 18, respectively) about the Jackal Group folks, along with Jonathan Gabay (Vice President of comedy development and programming at FOX) and both writers (Patrick Carlyle and Allyn Rachel) seeing Darren in Hedwig.
Jonathan Gabay (the FOX exec. from our "Royalties" conversation) went to see Darren last night (via DarrenCrissArmy): 50shadesofgabaySo proud of our friend@darrencriss who CRUSHES it in#HedwigandtheAngryInch! Go see it at the#Pantages ASAP if you can!x
Late reply, but I think the two writers who are attached to the project, Patrick Carlyle and Allyn Rachel, are in the picture as well.
//Edit after some quick stalking:
Three of the other people are Gail Berman, Joe Earley and Dani Gorin of The Jackal Group, the production company that is developing Royalties. Not sure who the remaining three are, but how nice that they all went to see Darren together!
