I have been fixated on Bravo's Situation:Comedy, a show that takes two writing teams through the process of getting a pilot filmed for possible TV broadcast. The process of going from script to show was eye-opening, as was the expected role of creators as their creation was developed by the network; that role? Little, if anything. It was interesting that the two scripts chosen (supposedly the best out of 10,000 received) had to be so re-written before taping that other than the concept and the broad outline of the first episode, they barely resembled their original "winning" script. Very, very interesting.
