‘Unmade Classics’ features two wholly remarkable sitcom scripts, picked-up by production companies with no fanfare whatsoever, and ultimately cut during the infernally indeterminable Global Financial Crisis (2008 till God-knows-when!). Until now ‘Where Are They Now?’ and ‘New Ageing’ have only been seen by several producers, my Nan and an unwitting recipient of a clumsily-sent email. However, Mr. Grayson of Wyoming gave it a hearty thumbs up and proudly boasted that he ‘chuckled maniacally’ – which is nice. Also, a squirrel is said to have successfully recovered after it overheard Mr. Grayson reading aloud and squeaked hysterically for three whole days, but this is only conjecture by the author.
If it wasn’t for the gluttonous greed of bankers you’d probably be watching these shows instead of reading them, but at least they’re now available in this modestly-titled and utterly hilarious e-book!
Unmade Classics – a must for lovers of sharp situation comedy.
