"Something bad is gonna happen, Buddy. Go high pressure and the friction. That's what turns coal into diamonds. There was some snow man when you releasing that no expense release that new album, But I did not cover the first season of mythic quest. I don't think I actually had access to the apple TV stuff early enough. When it first came out here to ago, But I remember it covered the quarantine episode and what's interesting. I did a little bit of research, apparently making quest was one of those Syria's that did get hit with Cove it pretty hard. So you know anybody out there is doing short films and that sort of thing. You gotta look at this stuff, even if you're just some college kid shooting it in your mom's basement. Be aware of this and have your protocols because you don't want your arts your production to be the result of somebody getting sick and people should be getting vaccinated. I got vaccinated. I'm doing great. My family's vaccinated. There's no reason not to get vaccinated unless you actually have a doctor telling you, you absolutely shouldn't and that's rare. So with mythic quest that finally came back, and even with it with that, I think there are primarily cautious with it. Because they have F. Murray Abraham in it, and he's in his eighties now and so, like the first several episodes he was actually put in their virtually so they didn't have them on set with multiple people. And I think that was done for very specific reasons, because your son home guy, and you know you don't want to kill your cast. So they did a episode for the corn team about this time last year, and then they did a precursor episode sort of like a bridge episode. That came out. I think in the middle of April called ever light, which was just a bonus episode. Now they've got the whole season dropped this weekend, and it carries on the story of these people Developing. This epic game that everybody plays and is very popular. It's it's essentially spinning off of World War craft. You know, sort of making it similar to that or its medieval and the purpose of this season is they need to do an expansion of it. They're going to do more to the game. And you have robbed McClenny, who was of course, the main guy playing I n who created the game and Poppy, who is his co creative director, and it's the two of them fighting all the time, and they've got a great chemistry there. But ultimately, it's hard even though it's got the geek stuff, and it's got gaming stuff. It's It's really a workplace comedy, and you've got the two Gaming testers, the two ladies and they started a relationship together. You've got David Hornsby playing the executive producer, and he's He's a complete pushover, and he's dealing with his treasonous secretary. And there's all this internal politics of the office, not just among K MERS, but you know, just the basic things about budget and that sort of thing. So it's sort of like, if you watch the office. You wouldn't watch the office because you love paper. He wants the office because you like the interaction among all these people, and that's what makes mythic quest. Funny. It has very funny elements to it. It's put together by the people who do. It's always sunny in Philadelphia, Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day work on it. And they run the show. But it's very different than Sonny because it's not just about horrible people. It's about people who have actually levels of humanity, trying to get along and work together and put out a product. The end up diving a little bit more into the characters and splitting characters off with each other, too. Work a little bit more. Now. Some of them end up getting a short shrift. Like Danny Pootie, who's best known for a bit and community. He plays their monetization director and he's He's a real shark. And his characters kind of muted a bit throughout this Season. It's not as prominent as well as it was last season because they're trying to get to the humanity and he has no humanity. But they do really flesh out in particular the character and later on in the syriza about halfway through, They really flesh out the character that F Murray Abraham plays and he gets a great little many arts going on, and they're so that they're enriching themselves. They're enriching their own universe and and playing off each other and actually trying to tell human stories and not just in over comedy like It's always sunny in Philadelphia, so I enjoyed this one. It's a breeze to get through. You can even bang through what I think there's a nine episodes. They're releasing him once a week, but.

"Now here's one of the key things versus something like bob's burgers goldberg's simpson's were they all have like twenty episodes season may be a little bit more. Maybe just a little bit. Less sunny doesn't sunny generally has around ten episodes. And i think that kind of saves them from not having to redo the same plot and they somehow they're writing is absolutely top notch to 'cause they can even make topics even bring in relevant topics that you might see in the other shows more specifically bob's burgers or even more specifically the simpsons were feels gimmicky to kind of stay relevant whereas the characters do agent sunny so when they're using those things if feels like a natural struggle for these characters to grasp certain concepts so they did a social media episode and they did like texting episode Where i will say the texting episode fell a little too late in the series. That's one thing i'll strike against it. Some thought but generally like you know social media for businesses and stuff like that when they did that like five or six years ago. It still felt like that was about the right time to do it. You know if they did it too much later. Maybe not Which also. I did mention earlier. David hornsby a producer and recurring characters of in good girls or while he's a recurring character on a producer and it's always sunny offi. He was one of the main characters or is one of the main characters in good girls But i think one of the really really big things aside from the great acting and writing that saves. It's always sunny in philadelphia is there's not an actual term for it but i'm just gonna for for the sake of argument. Caught the seinfeld fact and that affect is is when you have a group of characters who as the seasons go on her as their story goes on. They grow to be more despicable now. That is D- evolution of characters. But it's a we'll call it a type of growth whereas the simpsons goldberg's and bob's burgers. They don't have that the characters are the same. And that's kind of why some people might consider like the simpsons to be a timeless classic. Were people could even argue the other ones but i. I don't really argue that. And i think the simpsons is stretch that at this point to but yeah. That's that's kind of the thing. Is that the characters are changing and they're growing to be more despicable that i mean that's why you even have seinfeld and it had like you know twenty season episodes for quite some time except for like the first two seasons. Where the first seasons like four episodes of seinfeld the characters are becoming worse and it brings a whole new type of comedy into play and they're changing with the times but they're struggling to change with the times but once again even even on the topics that they think they need to be sensitive about..

"We have a pretty set cast of the churches that we meet in this episode. Emmy emily desch. Do you know who she's married to in real life. I do know married actor. David horn aka rickety cricket from always sunny a little fun makes me so happy because i love rickety cricket and so anyone who chooses to spend their life with rickety cricket must be pretty cool and also that david hornsby aka rickety cricket is cousins. With bruce hornsby and the musician he'll take bacon it down to the to the harbor lights and honored and on the shore So a lot of. That's a lot of like six degrees of kevin bacon type stuff. And i believe that hart hanson. Who is the creator of bones. Did he have something. I thought he may be had something to do with kevin bacon show but he i was going this back to kevin bacon. But i can't do it. I never watched bones and it's funny because this was a show that was on around the time that i was watching a fairly decent amount of trauma. It's twenty four is in its prime at this point in time for the show premieres in two thousand and five bones and i think that twenty four must be on. It's like fourth season at this point. Think all right i think. That's maybe it's v some somewhere in that range. Prison break is just hopping loved me. Some prison break so it would constantly see commercials for bones and they would always have Like the previous for every episode that would like show on fox when At least the running joke with me and a couple my friends was was that literally like a everything would seem very dramatic and the tension would be diffused by the preview. Amping up the comedy of the character. Temperance brennan saying. I'm a forensic anthropologist and so like my friends and i would often like anytime. Something would get awkward and like being a debate. It's a close at obey would say. Well listen i'm a forensic anthropologist and that would that would end everything but that was like the extent of my bones know how guys in the room. We were pretty pretty awesome. I gotta be honest with you. But that was like the extent of my bones knowledge and i never watched it. This week was the best time that i've ever watched an episode of the show and it was the show that you picked out very rightly for the holidays and frankly Even more time we. It's a quarantine episode in which the members of the jeffersonian as well as booth end up getting locked down because of the the unleashing of potentially deadly virus from one of the bodies that they're studying so they have to spend a couple of days on lockdown over the holidays and emotions run high and sleepovers..

"Knew he could do that. We knew we didn't need Dali's all sorts of things. You know we had a cheap boom to cameras. And like a guy who knew about like white balancing or something, but I don't think we ever properly didn't. Answer the first one was shot. Was Okay not great, and so we tossed it. the Fuck Outta. I. Love this story with I'm about I, I. Love You guys were like, let's do something and then you're like, let's just shoot it. I mean like I feel like that force. Is. Why you guys are so successful and so good, and I can't I'm sorry to slow it down I. Just WanNa save read you hated the first one and you threw it away and like whatever that is, that is the glue that holds together. The LEGO death star of your dream is the instinct ago. I think this sucks. and. Unfortunately I have that in spades and it's a curse, which is like nothing is ever good enough. Really, well, ever good enough I pretty much feel at the end of every sunny so that we blew it. Moosh it, and it takes me about a year to be like, this is actually GonNa Fun, and then I love it. Yeah. But in the moment that always striving for something I, can never achieve terrible. I'm reading this. It's called the good neighbor. It's the Mister Rogers biography and believe it or not. He was the same way he'd stopped production on this pretty. Pretty. Low budget show to like, consult and re writing, and so I was just like I love knowing that even something like sunny. Mister Rogers Mister Rogers feels Albright an easy and like we're just having fun with puppets and your show does I mean this is a common feel like funny people fucking around underneath that is we're throwing this pilot away and A certain. I see two energies, right. You have the Charlie Day. That's like I can't believe I'm an actor. I can't believe you're an actor. Let's be friends. This is amazing. I think it was good I. Think I'm great. I'm GonNa prep this addition because I want to be excellent, and then there's this part that I think you also need the Yang of that which is like I think this might suck because. If you have that, then you're going to just show everyone crap unless you just happen to be a genius guess not. I mean, and I don't remember if it was me or WHO's Rider Glenn? WHO's all collectively? Just we just knew it was off. We. We knew it wasn't so much crap that we were like, Hey, let's never tried to make a show again like there was enough there to be like. Okay. Almost. What's wrong? And then we did it again. the second time around we got in much better shape dot gus. We can actually show people this while. The quality of re shooting something, we did this. You know there's that doritos contest where you make a commercial for the Super Bowl, a lot of young filmmakers and stuff do that. We did that. One of the first year is me and Orrin McCarthy this sort of film group that we had, and we shot one and it was dorito Scotch was was the premise and it's every chip has the equivalent of a shot of Scotch and the guy gets drunk Mateus, and then we're like I think we should reshoot it. It's more Super Bowl Li to make it beer. This is. Is the same situation by by the way friends with cameras location that somebody lent us just just that that. That early energy that we habit you guys have, and we re shot it, and when we reshad it, we made it so much faster. We like every say everything faster because it's thirty seconds everything faster. So it was so much faster than we actually had time in the commercial. You know sometimes after the product screen, there's enough time for little tag a little NB. So it was ten times better for being reshot because we had the experience of watching it and going like. Why are we talking so slowly? Something when you're look like I I imagined. You know I imagine. Wes Anderson doesn't see get to the end moving be like. This like like there are certain people that they've got. Down there style so much and I don't feel that way about sunny. Now. I don't see Saudi Say Gosh. I. Wish we could read whole thing. When you're starting out and you're beginning and you're in that trial and error phase of of what is your voice and what a show is specifically show. Yeah. Just reduce something is. What. What got picked up. What was the difference? Did you rewrite or did you just chain do perform differently? I can't. Remember. It's so long ago I know forgive me this I. Just Watch an interview with David Foster Wallace where they're asking him about an infinite jest, and it's the most uncomfortable thing I've seen because he keeps going. It was. It was seven years ago and and he's sweating and like he can't remember. So I am not doing that yellow straight this when we shot that pilot was twenty, seven, forty, four. Yeah. I think one thing was not to discredit David Hornsby. But David Hornsby played round mcilhenny role. The first time we did it And was going to do it the second time as well. But. had take a trip to. The couldn't move without allergies should round. And it is Boy. It made more sense for WHO's writing for himself in a way yeah. Yeah. I love that. That's like that's like a falling in love story like there's so many things like that. I don't want to go into specifics for the same reason, because I, don't WanNa, hurt feelings. But there were there were many times. The many things that I've done were, what we wanted got shifted because of something like a trap or another job or somebody that we books we were really excited about couldn't do it, and then we're like we'll just give it to this prison, and then it's like it couldn't have been anybody else couldn't have been Al. Pacino, like this is perfect. And that sort of providence stories like desert are dripping with that and I. I. Love It. I'm not surprised but I love it. Yeah. No. Apart, they could mean, who knows you know that's A. Are Meant to be a certain way by David Hornsby you know he plays a character called Ricky cricket. Our show starts out as a uptight priest is in love with D. in that, he just slowly devolves or very season. I was just watching the the state of Virginia. I was just watching man, that's what I said he deterred. and. And he's written on every season of the show to, and he'll land world-class ready starring on our apple show that we have a committee quest. Okay. Dealing with aggressor involved in that, I was involved in the writing of the pilot and then haven't been involved since that. So..

Movies. Sometimes watch bad move, but I understand. Will will pay off and you're trying to make something that's going to resonate. Will Are you familiar? There's you look it up on Youtube Jim Carey's like I'm pretty. It's like it's the thrusting of the hips and and I'm not sure if it's like all righty then, but there's he has been open about that. He got those moves from something. It's another monty python type thing. Forgive me, I'm not I'm not living up to my comedy duties, but he's like if you watch, you're like, oh, he got that sort of like is your number still none one sorta thing from this guy and he's on this is not me pulling the sheet off? He's been open about it he did. Get something from somebody. Yes. Everybody in. It's the Picasso, great, Artists Steal. But when we say steel, we don't. It's so interesting. I always think of it as a blender. Put, enough influences in and blend net. Your Voice, it's so strange will kind of come out through that blending process like the your Eunice will be expressed. Through your influences there've been times when I'm sure you have to where I watched somebody. I'm like, Oh, I think I'm an influence on this guy, and you don't get mad you go like, yeah, I was doing Brian Regan for ten years and Seinfeld and all these Steve Martin and that, and that was in my blender and and then. Ask. Certain point you do it long enough something. There's a birth thing, and now you sound like Charlie deck even though you were doing these other things. Yeah. Never did stand. But I imagine specifically in stand that there's a lot of that right, which is that you have to try everyone style before you find your own Dude I. Wonder if I'll blow your mind I, realize this podcast, fat guy. Little. Code. Who does that sound like it's Bill Murray. Hey Sing like Bill Murray. That's not the put it down. That's to say everybody's doing it. So like your point, two young creatives listening to me, keep feeding yourself good shit. Oh. Yeah. Absolutely. Just devour everything. I'm Kinda. Mad At myself. slowed a little bit in i. need to I, need to re up my watching things. Being apparent that slows it down, but let me keep going the. Disease. So it's in this time in New York and making the movies, Jimmy. David Hornsby. Who's big writer contributor actor on Sunny. That I get out to test for a pilot. In La. And on the plane, need a young man name, Rob mcilhenny and. Hype. and. It's the kind of thing where you're both in the airport, like that guy looks like an actor. Actor. Like who else are they flying out to test. Right? Odd. And so. I I don't know who introduced to but got talking and started hanging out I. Think I actually, he had rented a car. So I hitched a ride within the dish everything. Was He testing for the same show we were testing for part. Get the fuck out. That is one of my favorite La Cliches 'cause like we were saying you have to learn to enjoy these things when you're walking into a building and I see another tall lanky as goofy motherfucker. I'm like I like it sometimes I get the feeling. They don't like it, but I'm like you're reading for Stu. Aren't you I? Think it's so funny. But there's a bunch of people that look the same yeah I now and so. Well, so we we went and we both read for the part, but they pulled the plug on the pilot like that day. Second time in a row would happen to me like Robert Remember being really upset about it and I was like, this is what happens. They fly out in, cancel the pilot. But, then we just became buddies. And start hanging out in? New. York, a little bit. Did you sit together on the plane I'm sorry to keep slowing you down, but like I'm like. The long flight, I don't think we sat together I. Think we had different. You really bonded on the ride and maybe at the audition and. We're like, what was it? Do you remember because this is such a classic I mean as a history-making meeting. was there a moment where you were like? This is my kind of motherfucker writer. Not Remember one, but I mean I, think I was. Always, a genuinely sorta affable guy and and. I think at that age too. I was into just meeting whoever you now I wear. I wanted to know more people make more friends. And I imagine round was found in the same way. So. Or who knows, maybe we just had a you're bringing me back. You're being too when we used to commercial audition and if there was another actor. I still get juice just meeting another comedian. Even if I don't know anything about them, I'm just like. And, I've been doing a twenty years. I'm still kind of five. It's like one of the reasons I loved running into you. At that party I was like, this is fine. I WANNA talk to. Some of it. But when we were young men when we were in our twenties, it was like Holy Shit another one. So I, completely understand. Yeah, Eso. It was unreal like a hey, you're you know. We're in the same boat in an ADENOID. probably exchanged home phone numbers. I, Don. Now gives maybe I gave him my Did you a thing where was like your phone number and you check the pay phone? It was like a etc service. So answering machine. Dunno must have been computer somewhere, but I would like. You know pony order to pay phone and dial this number, and it was like my personal answering machine, an answering service. Doesn't have that in swingers. I feel like that was that was of a time when it was like call my service, you'd give out your number for your circle. Yeah, origin. Banks. and. The whole line was unreliable of yours. That crappy answering machine might break or a busy signal. Your roommate like a racist or whatever you know yeah yeah yeah. So I, don't know that we bonded and then. Now, the next step is to me, but I moved out to La. Forearm like maybe. Six months or year before him. And then he came out and. End We were continued the friendship out here and started filming a few things together because he knew I was still doing stuff with Jimmy. Jimmy, moved out here and I moved in with him out here. And we just made a few funny videos was writing a lot. So we would do readings of his. Movies writings for serious movies and things. Ownership what fun. Yeah. And then we just kind of hanging out being young guys hanging out. and. I remember this specifically I I had a great gig as the voice of the independent film channel for years. So for many years, those are sweet gigs. Oh, buddy. It was very sweet. In fact, I almost turned it down because I had a callback for the movie eight mile. The EMINEM. and. It was such a big deal for me. and. The commercial agent said Yeah. But you gotta go take this recording GIG and I said. You know this is a Curtis Hanson, film? You know they they really like me now in. The late management was the casting director and she was like really on my side a lot and. And the guys like, no you. You might make like eighty this year.

He's of course, the longtime star and co creator of It's always sunny in Philadelphia, which just got picked up for its 15th season. He also produced the show Mythic Quest, which is streaming now on Apple TV, plus Let's get back to our interview. I would love to talk about the quarantine episode of mythic quest that is now available there on Apple TV. So talk about how this episode came together and kind of where you were. In making the season when safer at home happened. Yes. So we were. We were in the middle of shooting the first episode of Season two and it Wass. I believe it was a Wednesday. And And it was becoming clear that There that we were going to have to shut down at some point, even though that that was not the messaging. We were hearing from our leadership. We still felt like this. This'll was important and it felt like I can't we had a scene. On that Thursday that was supposed Teo was supposed to be in a theatre where I end and Poppy are addressing 2000 people and we were gonna have about I don't know 500 extras. They're back 500 background actors there and I just thought that that's just socially and ethically irresponsible. So I'm making the call, and we just We just shut the whole thing down. So that was it. We went in. We went home thinking, Okay, I guess you know, in a couple weeks, we'll just wait it out, and then we'll just return. Obviously, that's not what happened. So then, as the months went by, we were just brainstorming on ways in which we could Just get the crew paid for a few weeks, and that's really what we were going for. More than anything else, which was just get everybody paid. So how do we do that? And then we just started brainstorming an idea that you know we could do. We could do an episode in quarantine. We had seen a couple other shows that we're doing it and thought All right, well there first. So, so we have to make sure that we we want to do something that feels like of the show and also feels like you know, we we we elevated and could make sure that it felt like a premium episode. Of the show, so that if you were to watch it, you know, five years from now, it wouldn't seem like we shot in quarantine on that we use this interface of the Of the telecommunications device, Teo as a creative choice, not as a limitation. Because it was a limitation. I would love to hear about how you wrote the episode. I'm kind of assuming that, like pre quarantine mythic West had, you know a fairly typical what you think of when you think of a TV writers room, you know. People around a table with white boards and Lacroix and things like that, like way. How? How? How. How was the writing of this one different Well from conception to delivery. Final delivery was was three weeks. So it was. It happened incredibly fast. Once we got what's that kind of pitched out to Apple? What we were doing? We shot a little test on then kind of proved to them that we could We could make this episode. They gave us the green light. And we we think we've wrote it in three days on DH. That was over a zoom call with my other executive producers David Hornsby in Mega Ganz and we were just on Zoom. And broke the story. And then we each just took a scene and went in order and I think we executed the first pass of it that next day and then in the final script was executed the day after that, and then we just got shooting. It's bull's eye. I'm Jordan Morris. My guest is Rob McElhenney he co created and stars in the Siri's mythic Quest. Ravens banquet. So recently. I think that always sunny was named the longest running sitcom in American history. Did you know that milestone? It wasn't It wasn't named that. I mean, give us a great credit. That's a factor. It is. That's a straight up fact. It was named that because it is that because it is that, Yeah, well, it will be that But of course, there's a caveat to that that you know, we don't like to talk about too much, which is back in the day. They were doing 20 to 25 episodes a season of the show, which is infinitely more harder than doing 10 which is what we do. How How did it feel when that when you knew that was going to happen? I don't know that I really think about it in terms of like records or whatever. I just it's just fun. I love making it I love making it. I love that people watch it. Our audience grows every year and has since season. For something like that season three like it is, it has grown. It has grown, and I can. I can't believe that it's just that it just continues to get exposed to more people through the various platforms and and Our feeling is if we're still having fun. FX wants to keep making it weaken, still stretch and grow creatively and do we're different things and not feel like we're just rehashing the same year after year, and the audience is there and they still love it. Why would we ever stop doing it? The characters on always sunny. Don't don't change a lot there. You know they started the show as bad people and they're still bad people. Is that a challenger an asset when you're writing a new episode. I would say it's an asset because it allows for us to re set each individual episode and start from scratch and because they never learn or grow. Or change in any way. They're just basically just clay, and they will always at the end of every episode crushed themselves back into whatever they've built up into Another piece of Clay to be moulded again and then smashed again at the end because they'll always lose. They'll always lose. They have to lose. Otherwise, the show deviates from what we believe is like it's it's touchdown. Andi. That's how we're able to address a lot of the things that we do, and it's clear. I hope it's clear that we, as the filmmakers are changing and growing and learning and trying to be better and do better. And that the characters don't and that allows us to have this. Sorry to keep using, like mixed art metaphors, But like a new canvas each week that we can paint and then destroy and then paint and then destroy And it's just allowed us this. This this opportunity to T do it for 15 years. I think we have time for one more question. I just Maybe this is just a little bit more of an observation as someone who plays a lot of video games. What I something I appreciate about mythic quest is that the Game that they're making looks fun like I want to play the game that they're making. And I think that's that's that's really important for its authenticity. Yeah. How much? How much time did you spend? You know? Making sure that the game looks like a game. A lot..

"Welcome back to Bullseye I'm Jordan Morris in for Jesse Thorn I'm talking with Rob mcelhinney. He's of course. The longtime star and Co creator of it's always sunny in Philadelphia, which just got picked up for its fifteenth season. He also produced the show mythic quest which streaming now on apple TV plus. Let's get back to our interview. I would love to talk about the quarantine episode of mythic Quest that is now available there on Apple TV. So talk about how this episode came together and kind of where you were in making the season. Said home happened. yes, so we were. We were in the middle of shooting the first episode of season. Two And it was a believe it was a Wednesday and. And it was becoming clear that there that we were going to have to shut down at some point, even though that that was not the messaging we were hearing from our leadership. We still felt like this this was important. It felt like I can't. We had a scene on that Thursday, that was supposed to We're supposed to be in a theater where I am. Poppy are addressing two thousand people. We were GONNA. Have about. Five hundred extras. They're back. Five hundred background actors there and I just thought that's just socially and ethically irresponsible so I'm making the call and just just shut the whole thing down so. That, was it we went in. We went home thinking okay. I guess you know in a couple of weeks. We'll wait it out and then we'll just return Obviously, that's not what happened. So, then as the months went by, we were just brainstorming on ways in which we could. Just get the crew paid for a few weeks, and that's really what we were going for. More than anything else, which was just get everybody paid. So how do we do that? And then we just start brainstorming an idea that we you know we could do. We could do an episode in quarantine. We've seen a couple of other shows that we're doing it and thought all right. Well there I so so we have to make sure that we we want to do something that feels like of the show, and and also feels like you know we elevated and could make sure that it felt like a premium episode of the show so that if you were to watch it, you know five years from now it wouldn't seem like we shot it in quarantine and that we use this interface of the. Of the telecommunications, a device to to as a creative choice, not as a limitation. Not because it was a limitation. I would love to hear about how you wrote the episode. I'm kind of assuming that like pre quarantine. mythic quest had a fairly typical. What you think of when you think of a TV writer's room. You know people around the table with whiteboards and. Lacroix and things like that like. How how how was the writing of this one? Different. Well from conception to delivery, final delivery was was three weeks, so it was it. It happened incredibly fast once we got once pitched out to apple what we were doing. We shot a little task. and then Kinda prove to them that we could. We could make this episode They gave us the green light and we. Think. We've wrote it in three days. And that was over a zoom call with. My other Executive Producer, David Hornsby and Megan. Ganz and we were just on zoom and and broke the story, and then we each just took a scene and went in order. I think we executed the first pass of it that next day and then. The final script was executed that the the day after that, and then we just got shooting. The episode is really like is very funny and very like packed with jokes like the show itself. like sunny very like joke intensive But. As a mild spoiler, but in the in the episode, there's a really like quiet emotional scene and it really stands out. It's a really striking scene. and. You don't have to talk too much about what happens in it, but I'd I'd love to hear about why. You wanted to include a scene with that tone and just in general. How do you approach injecting like genuine emotions into a very joke dense comedy? Well when we were approaching this particular episode we, we thought at the very least we wanted to give people you know twenty five minutes of something that made them laugh and brought a little joy into the world, but if we could also possibly make people feel a little bit less alone, and then end with optimism and triumph, that was sort of the that was that that would be like the ultimate goal, so we had to come up with a couple of different sequences to achieve that in the jokes. The jokes are always like the easy part. Because we have a lot of people a lot of funny actors. But when you're when you're navigating. Some of the more emotional stuff, especially when you're working with a very specific interface of zoom calls essentially. It gets a little bit. It gets a little bit trickier and we knew that. We knew that we wanted to be socially responsible. And ethically responsible and not suggest. That it was just okay to to to break quarantine. And to approach that I from a cavalier's perspective. We wanted to make sure that if we were going to tell the story of someone. Breaking Quarantine was for very specific reason, and that was. There was a character in crisis. A friend in crisis and. You know. We all recognize the physical health is of paramount importance, but it shouldn't supersede mental health and in in the story. There's somebody who's in real crisis. There's.

"Let's see what was the bug. Maybe maybe you know this one. The this APP is no longer shared bug. I read the article and have not heard of this bug light. It must not have been a very big one. I'm sure it existed but I have not come across that. Read anything about it other than macrumors comments on that so to me. Install thirteen fuck away never had a problem parent and I just hadn't read it anywhere. It wasn't big enough. I'm I'm sure that there's plenty of people have experienced it. Otherwise you know that it wouldn't have been talked about in any forums but It just wasn't big enough to catch my attention. You may not notice it because I it was something that went wrong in the APPs with thirteen. Five and these APPs were immediately updated and the most people only noticed it because they got to updates in a row or they got a quick update to an update on the APPS. macrumors posits. It might be an expired certificate or other credential related APPs sharing And that apple has had to reissue. Those updates include a valid certificate. That's their theory Yeah I was just curious because I didn't see it either. So maybe only Mac. You wreck rumor. Readers saw that nobody resign. Moore had a problem. It's a problem. It's only macro readers that get sample. This'll be very good news if they do this. Nine to five Mac reports that apple is going to do a catalyst version of the messages APP on Back this is really interesting to me for. Only for two reasons one of them is the the simple thing like we get to have an animal. Gm EMOJI and stickers. On the Max. Something that that's been missing from the messages APP on online Fi. Yeah the screen changes and things we. We've not been able to use those on Mac so I think that I love this idea but also this is. This is the first time that catalysts has been used to replace to fully replace an existing APP on the Max so this is an interesting step in that direction of You know they sort of tested. The waters by putting brand new CADILLAC APPS on MAC like the stocks APP than they even further tested. The waters by changing something like I tunes which includes podcasts into two separate APPS. Which is the music APP and the PODCAST APP which is on Cadillac Catalyst but this is actually replacing APP for APP the messages APP. If this if this does happen and I I'm wondering what does that mean for the future of a built-in APPs using catalysts on the Mac in the future. Do you think so one reason to do it is so you have feature parody with the phone right. So it's exactly the same. It's it's I understand. Maybe not with the Mac because Mac does things. The phone doesn't like you can screen share from the buddies. They don't lose things lose things. I mean the functionality is there I just hope that they they implemented. It would also be a really nice demo of catalyst. I'm sure they're anxious to show people. What a great job. Catalysts can do with your existing IOS APPs. Supporting them to the MAC. Right playground was pretty good. I think the best job. They've done so far the swift playground that they moved from. Yeah Yeah They voice memos they've done it with the PODCAST APP the stocks APP not exactly. Yeah Challenge. It'd be really interest- thought it was the catalyst APPS that were bad. And I realized it's all those media but it'd be interesting if you did it with catalysts and showed that you could have mac specific features in the multi window because you can click on a on a message and it pops up into its own window which is not a feature like you can tear out things on the IPAD. But you can't like if I am I. Messaging Laurie. I can just double click on that making its own window. I can do all sorts of Makati Mac things on it right now. You can even old school slash status and say like how I'm feeling And really how many make yes cool. I mean it's chat really. It's it was a it was a re re purposed. I chat has got Daniel Jenkins little fingerprints all over it. Would it take John? Gruber tweeted it would kill. It would be the end of the line for apple script. He says to be clear. If apple does the catalyst route with MAC MESSAGES. I'd expect apple scripted. Bdo A Shortcuts would be the well there. It is yeah shortcuts. I'M MAC OS. Which seems possible. This would be so. This is one of those bellwether things now. By the way this all comes from Iowa the Iowa for mysterious floating around never released Beta version. The gift that keeps on giving So is it possible that it's meaningless in? The fourteen is just full of strange things that will never make it to the real world often illegally. Yeah yeah all right so we will treat it like that but it was interesting. The grew took that seriously that you know that would be meaningful and that is one of pro. You know. That's a MAC feature Mac only feature that people don't care about our us but those who do care a lot about I mean I I I wanna say embarrassing because they debuted. Then you messages for Iowa's three four years ago I mean people who debuted on stage now run their own start startup. That's how long ago it was and it still does bracket sant with fireworks bracket like I'm a third class citizen that sort of stuff and they unified those teams to three years ago. That kind of stuff just I. It's a lack of resources on the MAC side and they need to either increase. The resources increase the efficiency. Catalyst increases the efficiency Let's talk about TV. We're all a little bit more interesting. Tv than we used to be. I did not see the Friday. Mythic quest did you the Clementina episode yet so I stopped watching mythic quest because it was so annoying but I might. What episode did you stop on? I really loved. The flashback episode. Okay you did watch that one. I thought that was fantastic. We talked about it. It had anything right. It's just dropped in the middle and that was good and then the next episode after that I think was the one I stopped watching because it went back to its old ways Including you know some. I think a lot of stereotypes of of people that I don't like I feel bad that F Murray Abraham is forced to be a doddering old man And a blowhard. And you know this is partly because it comes from rob mcelhinney sunny in Philadelphia. And that's kind of his his style. So if you haven't seen and I I will. I'll just skip right ahead of this episode because I'm curious all shot on iphone. It's the quarantine version. They're all at home They information yeah. Yeah Yeah Apple Forty New. Iphones and twenty. Cents Ear Buds To get the team And they wrote the episode Whiz mcelhinney wrote with David Hornsby's also in the show and Megan Ganz shows co-creator. They wrote it in three weeks. Not Not just wrote it three weeks. They shot it. They edited it and they got ready to air in three weeks and in fact apple liked it so much submitting for Emmy consideration. You see it. Have you seen it anybody? I haven't I haven't seen it yet. I haven't had the opportunity yet. Yeah I would never have known except for this The article and actually the only reason because Mica sergeant said it was really good so we trust Mike. We have really. I'm really impressed with. Creators are navigating remotes entertainment. And when you can really do something special with it I think it was the parks and rec had something kinda similar where they made an episode. They called it the reunion episode. They put up on Youtube and it was pretty high quality and well edited it was written. It was scripted but it used the the shelter in place order to help further the story along and you got all the jokes and all the funny things in it but it was. You know this kind of perspective like what I'm looking at right now. Which is your face in front of a camera in front of a computer screen and it's really fun to watch. How creators are turning the means. They have into something fun and interesting and creative. What was the prime time drama? That had an episode nearly done but they had to finish it using CPI Like not necessarily not even not even convincing CGI. But just okay. We'll look cartoon of what was to. Wow that's well it's it's weird but it's fascinating it. It made me think that what if part of what part of the the the knock on effects that We realized that she. Why haven't we been doing like a weekly dramas and animated like not not talking about like last minute? Let's as we were doing this because of corona virus nation. But what if you had the situation where now we can actually set scenes wherever they want and we can have crowd scenes as big as we want and if if if and in terms of isolation and And and Corona virus would not be that difficult to have. We have a motion capture to create a motion capture stage that can be operated by minimal people on site and the and the other thing would be we. Can't you can't get Tom Hanks to to do an entire story? Arc on on on the blacklist or something like that But if you said you actually I if Tom says you know what I have seventeen days off I love your show like if if I can get in and do all of my scenes and in two weeks you got me That would be. It's it's a lot of problems that could solve very interestingly The other thing that's really cool. Is They had a A side story about a charitable donation and they raised in real life. Six hundred thousand dollars for Mercy Corps Ahead Covid Nineteen Relief Program. So it'd be really churlish of you to hate on this show anymore so I'm GonNa love this show and I will watch it and give it the nation To what it's pretty cool. Of course it's no accident that it's on Apple. Tv plus so of course apple for iphones immediately. It's like yeah sure. That's a good idea. Let's show off what we can do like that The modern family did an iphone episode. Right facetime episode facetime episode right. So this is not yeah. They had one where the father was trying to buy an IPAD years later. They had one where they only talk over. Facetime right right and they made A. They made up Persia. Facetime for Mac that I still wish today. Civil does it. Does it work? I don't know also you can't. You can't do the finale of the silence of the lambs with point of view shots by by by people holding up phones. You need to actors together playing off each other Well any Any other there are some new apple. Tv plus Show watching the one with the young the young female to the young girl reporter for blanking on the name now but she's she moved back to her family's hometown and promptly sniffs out crime all about it a little bit over the top But it's pretty good and it seems like they're collecting the avengers because Rouleau has some they are show on with and captain. America has a courtroom drama. And it's all it's like. They're not they're not holding back on budget. That's one thing then they are starting to acquire back catalogue a lot of back catalogue because they realize if you're going to subscribe to channel you can't just have the hot new shows We can't make the hot new shows. Now that's their biggest problem. I think that there original plan was to turn out high rate. Because they're they're putting out faster. I think than a lot of other networks are putting it out. They just new shows almost every week or every month but now nothing is in production. And that's a huge gap especially when you're running out of a free free users so apparently apple has gone to a lot of content companies and said You know we'd like some back catalogue. They've also been doing pretty well. They're not They are surging. Not the most surging. But they've done pretty well during the crisis Apple Thi this business insider apple. Tv plus sign ups in March and April were no greater than February according to Antenna Suggesting that the growth is slow compared to others during the coronavirus pandemic. Okay I take it back. I thought they were doing well. Apparently there I think the the story here is that well you know. Disney plus and Netflix's saw huge surges. The the Apple. Tv Plus Service didn't see significant changes..

"david hornsby" Discussed on Everything's Coming Up Simpsons

"These Great Young Guys David Hornsby and Michael Weaver who played the mullahs brothers. Who've super gung-ho goofy guys who who were their mom was famous played by Laurie Anderson at she was buried? Her new husband was John. O.`Hurley who played was a game show host so we've got to do like game show parodies as well but it was just like it was just like a vehicle for lots of like great jokes and it was on. Upn and it's early days and they again like I have to say like UPN. They let us do what we want. And they've loved it and they're super supportive but it didn't do very well to cancel right because he knew that area to people waiting at a car wash a laundromat and it just was like. I get like that was like that was a great experience while lasted and the thing that you've learned that you don't learn how to Simpson's because it has a canceled yet is that when a show gets cancelled that you're working it's very painful especially if you created it not because he create but that you're to oneself to tell everybody else's like high just got a call from the network you do or don't expect it and like we. Unlike the mullets it was very popular with its fans. Yeah so did we did it in front of a live audience which is another thing. You don't really WanNa Simpson's and that was great too because like wow. People are immediate immediate satisfaction ten months later when the simpsons airs so so we were like this is really funny show. It's delightful to work on. We got a great cast and writers but then it got cancelled like ten episodes Andrew. Like that's painful. You HAVE TO ASSEMBLE. Everyone go like well. That's your job. Yeah I mean this has been covered in in so many different like movies and TV. Shows about like Hollywood baby. And you know like how Heartbreaking of a business it can be but I imagine especially for live action. You know because with animation. At least in my own experience with it you don't have the assemblage of the team rams on right and it's also like those departments are it's much more compartmental like you've got the writing staff locked in a room you've got out of a sound stage. Here's a sound engineer. And then you have the animators but on a live action show. It's a big team together. That's one thing that we'd learned from the simpsons and I know people like Greg Daniels have as well that you appreciate the simpsons being such a commune and a collective that when you do a live action show you involve everybody on set and you're never like a jerk and it's always a friendly environment because we always found any the live action shows or pilots. We did everyone was welcome at. It's a much happier thing but Venice much sadder when you have to tell them it's canceled. I was GONNA say too. I mean it's like you. I find that live action. It becomes like a big club which is why you find a lot of people that are you know have been working on like certain director's films forever. Because it's just the band the band together. We have a band like that and we also have a band of writers but also directors that we love yeah and stuff like that but ended and the directors them would have the crews that they always work with so that was really great and it was like really delight. It was great to hear like a Camera Guy Laugh. Yeah that's like comedy gold. When you hit that that's true. Yes they're the most STOIC. People FOR BY DESIGN THEY HAVE TO BE. But if you can get them to crack it feels like you're in front of Buckingham Palace or something. Yeah laughing back and it's also a couple of things on the mullets to like. It was because it dealt with like the cheesy world of L. A. Kind of what we to got to have certain celebrities on the show who are delightful who are playing selves as one was rowdy. Roddy Piper. Yes we love him like. Oh my God I was just talking to my daughter. They live but he's like he seemed like a really great guy and part of the mullets where they were huge wrestling fans and we actually got to film at Staples Center like before a wrestling match for this one thing but anyway we liked one of her. Idols was Roddy Piper. Like let's let's see if we can get him on show and he came on his show and he was a charm. Such like wrestling guys are just like yeah. So that was like that was great. Plus he was really funny and he had a sense of humor about himself and he ever person big Christmas Adam West who got to meet on the simpsons because it was right before we started and he was. He was one of those people who I was designated Weirdo dealer goatee with him because he is really weird but was a lovely guy. Had We heard like Because he's playing himself. He had notes about playing himself and so and they're like Josh Adamson his trailer. And he has some concerns or Blah Blah Blah. So I th- designated guy to go out talk to Adam West trailer but I kind of liked. It's like I'm talking to Adam West. He's having a serious conversation about himself and his character surnames and then he was lovely to work with. But you just have to like we said like you have to learn to deal with all types of different. I feel Coenen may have similar stories because he did him and and I've been listening to his podcast to promote another kind of Simpson's adjacent podcast was having having that moment and I'm sure you experienced a very similar sensation of like the surrealness moments in Hollywood where you're like. I mean beyond how did I get here? I'm actually working in Hollywood. But then you have these moments that you you couldn't even designed in your greatest dreams. Yeah and you have to be able to appreciate them. And that's I think that's a good lesson for outside Simpson's world is you've got to appreciate every moment it's like it's like pitching a- show to executives. It's really hard but you have to appreciate it because in your enthusiasm shows or you're stuck at a trail of Adam West like it's nerve wracking but appreciate that moment and it and it was like. There's like wait. We're filming a show about fictional characters with Adam Aziz playing himself but he has notes about himself. And so it's like it's so that's like with. I can talk about it now because I I have a mental photograph. Stuck at a trail review was amazing to kind of more of a broader question that I have of. You know you mentioned that you know you've written on a lot of things that we're like one pilot died didn't go to series things that had one season like mission hill which. I Really WanNa talk about but then you know you are still going out and pitching. How do you keep the spirit alive and not become jaded with knowing how bad this can go because you've experienced it firsthand especially since the show you quit is continuing to get renewed in the shadow of heightened that you left? You're like Oh my God this wire your friends get you know what they're getting free lunch go along. You have to like what you're pitching and you have to be and what you do and you have to enjoy that. Because that's into. Its like we'd learned to really when we first started pitching we. Would we have everything in our and we physicist show about for young people who live in a boring town and for me band that thing you do but before? Oh we worked with Tom. Hanks company one way or the name in this didn't even I didn't even list. I I told you before we started. I did a list of everything that we worked on after the simpsons and it's like twenty five different things totally forgot about this. We did two pilots for his company. One was a serious drama. Hangs himself waste came into a meeting? Lovely and delightful to decide tension. What if this was totally forgot about this is I did was with David? Silverman was going to be the head of business. An animated show animals had jobs. They were closed world of animals. But this is like the first human to move into the neighborhood. It was going to be directed by designed by David Silverman. And it was really. It was hilarious. And it was right before that siegfried and Roy. Pride or pride this is the fickleness of Hollywood is awful. It's like we're developing helping to show at Tom Hanks's company and Tom. Hanks ever GONNA voice the main guy like to voice and and it was just like David Silverman and we are writing act and it was really and it was super funny and sweet and good in every way that you would want like Simpson's of animals. Yes he was what it was but because then Father Pride came and flopped Da. That killed this project unfair. But that's life outside of a simpsons is insanely unfair and you have to learn to go like right. That's it and you pull yourself back up and I feel like that that whole notion of like well. They're doing across the street. We can't do it now. I think is a little different with streaming and with cable. And how it's in. Its current iteration but you still find these moments of. I remember when finding Nemo or I guess finding Dory was coming out but when finding dory was coming out of a sort of second wave of like underwater stories and I just remember being in meetings where they're like. We're not doing underwater stories right now. It I'm like Oh whole region of the planet tell the ice counts are melting. It's all going to be an underwater story just as it's obsolete because like a lot of not all executives are looking for a reason to say no to say no false a lot bigger risk to say yes so but. I do think it was a much more narrow world up through the early two thousands before streaming and now. You've got a lot of people a lot and also you've got executives. Who GREW UP WATCHING THE SIMPSONS? Seinfeld or really great show so I think they're smarter. I mean cranks that we don't yeah think that people don't know you're out a certainly if you're outside of TV and film and you know maybe want to go into that in a industry like I think people think that it's just a yes or no from the executive pitch to but truly. It is winning the lottery. I want to say seven times in a row and you really have to win the lottery that first time and getting the pitch meeting you win the lottery if they say yes or if they like it then they have to put it up to their boss who has to say. There's so many lemony levels at you. Have to you have to appreciate every lottery ticket win or loss you get because you have to be a hundred. You've got to be one hundred percent committed to writing it and then filming it. Yeah though. It's so hard when you know that it could go away in a second right and it's a lot like half the piles half I'd say half the pilots lead sold got filmed Other half didn't didn't even get to that stage. Yeah and so. How much do you think I mean? You obviously have a really strong attitude where you're able like you. You know that you love working. You know that you love writing you care about each project. How do you know how often if ever did you find yourself kind of you know maybe protecting your feelings a little bit by not counting on stuff or or just thinking like oh? We'll never go and I'll be happily surprised if it does. Like what attitude do you think helped you? Continuously like put workout. 'cause I feel you know the people who are the most successful assuming that they're not people who have been helped in unfair advantages like people who've really worked to get where they are tend to be really nice kind people. I genuinely think that's true there. Obviously some people who are trust kids or born into it but they seem to have good attitudes and I think that's so much of it you know it is and it's like I keep harping on this but like positively is infectious. And it's like you go into a room you genuinely like what you're saying you're making people laugh at. You're making them feel good. Then they'll feel good rather project but I think it's like going back to your question. It's it's always looking ahead and not twelve. I'm going to pass the damn that pilot in itself or damage. They didn't pick it up but I'm just I'm going to do next thing and you can't dwell on it and also never figured I could nevertheless whenever like you make a pilot and a a network says though on the production company is off. Well we're going to sell it elsewhere. They never sold ninety. Nine mailer phone call now..

"That aren't distributed through the APP store so if you got an APP from the APPs developers website. You'd want to make sure that it was also safe. So there were interim terms. These begins. September apple notarized APPs that didn't have the hardened runtime capability abled Include components not signed by developer. Id do not include a secure time stamp with elders. Code signing signature was built using older S. T. K. or included a get task allow security entitlement that period allowed complete motorization process as well as protecting users using older versions of third party software. On Catalina Catalina apples warning developers who have yet to upload their software to the Notre Service to do so now and to review developer log warnings. The warnings become errors on February liberate third and will need to be fixed in order for the software to become notarized. Now there's there's reasonable concern here right. You want to make the from from just Apple's position this sounds like a good thing softwares coming from the source that they say it's coming from that it's been checked and there's no malicious code that this is generally we supposed to be a good thing for these right. That's the idea but there are some questions because this is a computer and it's your computer and if you can't open in things you want on it is it really. Yours is a question an another problem. That's a little more practical. Unless Esoteric or philosophical is will open source software software. Be Able to be notarized because open source software tends to be one where it does have an owner just in terms of copyright purposes because the licenses a copyright license the open source license is copyright license. You know if you aren't the owner and maintain her but you want to run on Mac back. Will you be able. Will you be the one with the The ownership rights to submit it for notation. This is a tough question now. Obviously apple is built on a lot of open source technology and has Apache included in. It has has a lot of things clearly. The colonel's open source even and some of these things are already included in the Mac Os Distribution Apple owns them cups dot org which is the common UNIX. Printing system is owned by Apple. So that is is already notarized in the system but for other open sollers tools. It's not clear so this is going to be interesting but we will see how this affects people there folks that are saying that nothing has changed nothing on the client side is changing that no version of Catalina ship without requiring by default and organization of all software created after June. First at the same time. This is something that will see what happens on February. Third FELBER's haven't done this. It'll be released. It's telling your software stops running. You know there's some people that say well. We were told about in June and then they started turning on interim rules in September. And now they're going to run the final rules in February third. That's plenty Monte of time and you'd say that but I would remind you that adobe has a history for example of Waiting till the last minute as they did with thirty two bit and sixty four bit applications that are getting ready for sixty four bit apple told everyone well ahead of time that sixty four bit was coming and you were still getting warnings about thirty two hubert applications so we will see what happens here. We'll keep watching and you want to tell you a little bit about Apple TV series. So there's a series coming called mythic quest Raven's banquet and it's a show centered around a team of video game developers Navigating the challenges of a popular video game game this is of course going to be exclusively on Apple. TV Plus The shows written by Rob McLennan Charlie known for their work on. It's always sunny in Philadelphia and and McLennan stars as the company fictional companies creative director in the show other people in the cast include F Murray Abraham who is in the Grand Budapest hotel and star trek insurrection. Direction Danny Pudi of community Imani Hakim from everybody hates Chris. Charlotte Nick Dow from Girls World. David Hornsby it's always sunny in Philadelphia. There's a bunch of people in this and it's got Production by mcelwain day alongside staffers from UBI soft and and of course my unscathed and three yards. The first season consists of nine half hour long episodes. What's interesting about this is is that this show has already been renewed for a second season and we have yet to even see the first season debut? This is the second show that they've done. This is with they They the first show that they've renewed prior to the first season. Actually displaying is apple's little America. Now of course. Is anyone interested in watching. This show is going to need subscription appleton plus but any of you find listeners. Who purchased an IPHONE IPAD? Mac Out of your ipod touch last this year after September tenth are eligible for a year of Apple. TV Plus for free. This is interesting. I think this one is going to who appeal to a lot of people first of all It's it's around a company and a video game and video game developers and and that kind of thing was already popular in a way with Silicon Valley on HBO. It's got a great cast. It's got writers who did great work with it's always sunny in Philadelphia which ran for a really long time time so I I think the recipes there now they could still get it wrong as William. Who's normally here would tell you? It's entirely possible that all TV as a pet it and you can't predict what's GonNa succeed but clearly apple thinks they can because they've already renewed the thing so this will be interesting and I'm waiting to see it. Of course I should also mentioned F. Murray Abraham was in Amadeus and won an Oscar. I roll his salary and the last Ray. I WanNa tell you about before you go back to your holiday festivities and and whatever it is. We do in the sort of lull between Christmas and New Year's Johnny. I remember Johnny Ive famous Guy Johnny Apple Chief Design Officer Former Apple. Chief design officer Sir Johnny. I've made a sizable donation to a campaign to plant trees across the United Kingdom He gave essentially a hundred thousand pounds. Runs or one hundred twenty nine thousand. US to the be a tree angel campaign now. He wasn't alone in this. The same amount was given by restaurants Richard carrying businessman Lord Sugar and an anonymous donor so in total four hundred thousand pounds from four individuals is enough to fund the creation of orchards in four thousand schools across the United Kingdom as well as provide care to maintain the orders and keep them healthy. I've told the Daily Mail I love trees and over the years of climbed them eaten and fallen from them and planet as many as I can and that trees were also profoundly good for learning and creating trees. Of course we're a fundamental concept concept for the apple partisan According to I've acres of Park Land and orchards were key to its creation and being able to contribute to a project so close to my heart is fabulous else. I've said so. The Daily Mail is behind the via tree angel campaign working with the Tree Council which accepting contributions from readers and corporate donors for the cause and so far the whole effort has raised enough to plant more than thirty five thousand trees. Now when we think about Apple Park it was obviously the dream of sleep.

"Rob mcelhinney who plays MAC on the show. He's one of the creators. He's the creator and he developed it with a Glenn Howard zinn. He discovered me on Twitter and thought I was a comedian. And then he started kind of clicking through any saw that I was like a journalist was working at the Daily Beast, and he read my stuff and thought that I was somebody that he would want to get to know that I was funny enough to write with TV. So he sent me a DM and he asked if I would be interested in talking him about TV. And I said sure, and we talked on the phone, and we ended up kind of becoming friendly and talking about ideas. Like, if I were writing TV show what I wanted to be and kind kinda went back and forth from while and we're working on a project together and then one day like last January he called. Me at work and was like do you wanna come and right for it's always sunny in Philadelphia? And I was like, okay. And that's how I got the job these rob is. Yeah, it was it was like kind of surreal I remember taking. I remember the exact conference room that I'd like ducked into to take the call and coming out of the conference room and feeling like Tinguely like I can't believe that. I'm not like I and I had to be there in the month. They're like, okay. Well, you have to move to and like I remember being like completely just floored. But you know, rob is a person who has always been since I've known him like a very supportive positive mentor type person. He like aggressively finds people that he believes in. And he will do what he can to put them in positions to have opportunities to prove himself. Like, I didn't have an agent at the time. I didn't have like a a spec. I'll all we had was a scripted. I had been working on that he had seen. And so he just he just kinda took a leap, and so I flew out to LA and was in the room full of these incredible writers who all had been in the world to some extent before I had been, and it was just so it was so lovely like Charlie day is just like a hilarious person to work with and the other writers Megan Ganz on the extra producers. Great. There's David Hornsby who plays cricket on the show. Also, just like John dropping funny. So it's like really kinda whirlwind..

"You don't know me at all. Nobody knows me. No friends. Exactly. So, you know, the the reaction I got was pretty good. And then I just tried not to like, you know, crawl up my own butthole, and like like live in there, you know. But then I started getting like people who I didn't know sending me messages that were like, I really liked your episode. And it was it was nice. I thought it was like a, you know, it's a an episode that was written on the the foundation of twelve seasons of incredible writing incredible acting, and so I was lucky to be able to jump off of that. But I'm you know, I'm happy with it. I've watched it. I've watched it once and then I was likely enough. I can't. Did you laugh at it? There is there is a there was one part where the part where they were like, so pretentious de. So pretend that when Glenn said that I was just like that killed me. He's I mean, he's they're all funny. But that was just a really your favorite or you'll have to say. Well, I have to say, rob. Because rob is the person that like found me as a writer and encouraged me to start writing TV. So he sort of like a mentor to me, but Charlie is the nicest funniest person I've ever been around. Caitlyn is super sweet Glenn. I haven't gotten to be around that much because he was doing AP bio at the same time as we were writing. So I saw like one day, but super nice guy, really talented. Danny's hilarious, like they're all great is the writing always submitted to Charlie and Robbins, or is it like, different episodes. I'm not charleen. Rob saw every episode from this season. But also Megan Ganz is an executive producer and David Hornsby who plays cricket also like had a lot to do kind of the final. I mean, if you wanna just talk about like sunny being the most depraved, and he's he's the embody of it. You want him out of that episode? Right. What you caught him out of that episode? Well, originally before we before I wrote the script we were going to have like a whole cricket storyline in there. And then we just ended up being like, we can't fit it in here. Crazy like, I mean, I'm sure it was hilarious because every time he's on screen. It is this is there's too much other funny shit too rickety. Cricket in it. I've seen the extras from I think last season when they're doing the who's the painter or the artists that that Charlie pretends to be. I know what you're talking about. And he's like he's playing painting. Cricket stories or drawing. Crayon? Cricket stories, and you doing the dog gang bang. It's an outlet taking creek. It just goes off off the cuff because you're getting a lot of red. Yeah. Hornsby does Hornsby is really fun to be in room with. He he does a lot of like he does a lot of pantomime ING. So like, he'll he'll be pitching align for himself. And we'll do it like in the character of cricket or he will hear somebody's as something. Then he'll pantomime himself telling his wife about it like in his imagination. And usually he's eating while he's telling him, I don't know. This is the shit. I want these people are just creative like freaks. I think to myself how you could be how how are you that funny for that long? How do you keep reinventing? How do you keep surprising? And it's like that. You're just there's something different. Yeah. There's also Megan Ganz is an EP, and I haven't really talked about her very much, but she's like, so so so fucking funny and smart and great she was on community for awhile shoot for modern family. She is a straight up genius like every like half of her jokes. Like, oh my God. How did you even come up with like, she's just she's wonderful? So she's another big factor in lake why this season, I think this season was pretty good fantastic. I think this season had I think even the episode. They criticized I've thought I thought leave odds was laugh out loud phony almost consistently. And by criticized I mean, like like, I did the room. I don't have a chance to watch every episode that night of so I'd be like, oh, he He was was a a disappointment. disturbance in..

"Always at the end of the three of us take every scripted and top to bottom you know do we rights on it and and like choices some some the require that much because our writers of very talented those are favorites than the ones that don't require us to do that much but they almost always need at some point the three of us to go through it all go through that strange filtering whenever the combination of our three mines is yeah or that it's very hard for somebody to get that voice in the some intangible thing and some of the funniest records in the world would give his grip that maybe you would reading to like what's wrong with nothing wrong with that for some reason is not clicking our had only to make it worse or better i don't now doesn't matter becomes your void yeah just hasta but there are people who have influenced that voice i would say some truth the three writers that of probably made the show what the show is you know beyond of the three of us would be scott mortar roberts el and david hornsby who had a term that they were our first three writers and you know they brought such an interesting point of view to the proceedings and they're one of what do they bring you guys didn't have before it's just it's is different is what an individual person is someone that individual person's tastes and sense of humor robin roberts el was a real absurd asked you know so he would just i in the weather was something a character would say for us situation that would be an to it was more absurd but i think we had started out yet yeah i think that's i think that's where i think he rode the original um lyrics today man so they may have been the script and and you know.
