Down and out in Saigon, again

I just got bad news from the production company. My TV show, Brooklyn Monk in Asia, got canceled before it even started. The Production company loves it, but the network pulled out. Now, I am completely broke and stuck in Saigon. Down to my last $50 with nothing on the horizon.

I feel like crap.

The network turned it down because their network is all about rich people going on dream vacations in exotic places.

Network executives apparently felt that flying to Singapore and getting beat up was not a dream vacation.

What world are they living in? Flying to Singapore and getting beat up is my dream vacation.

The production company is trying to sell the show to a different network. It would probably be better for Spike or AXN.

For now, the project is on hold. If we get a sponsor and can move forward, I will do après release.
