Too much empowerment? Too much femaleness? Too much estrogen? Too much emasculation? We aren't sure. But the message received...was NO.
The exact words from the Deadbeat writer were:
51I hear the pilot tested well but skewed too female for CBS’ schedule.52
And that Writer Was Female!! (See link below)
How awful is that? What a blow. But what exactly does that mean, really? Are there
too many other #female-led shows in the line-up that evening on that #network?
Or on #competing networks at that time? Or
do they think they have too many female-centric shows already?
OR is this blow back from the #male corner of the room?
We aren't really sure what it means.
What we do take #hope from is that they haven't trashed the project -- after all,
the #pilot #screened WELL, not poorly. So they are still shopping it around.
#HuffPo caught the mood of the #Twitterverse, and it seems to match ours, and includes the gender-equal male section (thank you!), so the world is not completely out of whack. Maybe just the #executive #network branch.
