Follow the misfortunes of Studio Reader Stan as he tries to work and survive in Hollywood.
Studio Reader Stan walks into Ms. Pantsworthís office, a studio executive at Demure Studios. She smokes a giant cigar.
Ms. Pantsworth: How yaí doing, Studio Reader Stan? Want a cigar? Theyíre from Nicaragua.
Studio Reader Stan: No, I donít smoke. And itís Larry.
Ms. Pantsworth: What Ė itís because Iím a woman, right? If a dude exec offered you a cigar, youíd probably be smoking it right now and offering to find him chicks so he can deal with his mid-life crisis.
Studio Reader Stan: Actually, no, I just donít smoke.
Ms. Pantsworth: If you insist. Anyway, this script, "Katieís Illness." I see you gave it a Consider.
Studio Reader Stan: Yes, I thought it was very heartfelt.
Ms. Pantsworth: Well, I read the synopsis and it doesnít sound funny enough. Iím going to pass.
Studio Reader Stan: Itís about a young homeless girl dying of cancer. Iím pretty sure they werenít going for laughs.
Ms. Pantsworth: Look, I have a very heavy social agenda, and these scripts are totally getting in the way. So why donít you just assume Iíll pass on everything.
Studio Reader Stan: Does that include the scripts of my own Iíve given you?
Ms. Pantsworth: Iíll get to them first chance I get. In the meantime, hereís some more scripts for you to tell me to never read.
She hands him several scripts.
Studio Reader Stan: These are the ones I wrote.
Ms. Pantsworth: Really? Well, I trust youíll be objective. Now hand me that boar axe, itís time for my three-minute workout.
