UPDATE: Read the entire LiveBlog: HERE (Paul Abbott about working on the project) 😀
Some quotes from the LiveBlog:
“You don’t feed the market what it wants. My belief is you’re meant to take an audience to an unexpected place,” said Abbott.
“Life treads on your toes, and we keep writing drama like it’s linear screenwriting”
“Paul Abbott just called the protagonist of Hit & Miss “a glock with a c*ck“! It’s about a transsexual hitman who is both mum & dad“
“A ludicrous clashing of concepts“
Hit and Miss has been sold to Australia (ABC2) , New Zealand (TVNZ) & Israel (HOT) today. And it was already sold to USA (DirectTV) last year! =D Congratulations & hope more countries will buy the rights as well!
Many thanks to MipTV for posting the session transcript online! 😀
Another interview with Paul Abbott : HERE
“I was initially writing it for Laura Ziskin, so I now need to take my time writing it properly and then defend it to the hilt. You have to know where the main cake mix is before you move it around…a transsexual hitman is a bazooka tagline, for example, but you have to back it up. She has to be a convincing character.”
