“In 1993 I had a series called I, LOVETT on BBC2 which was watched by one and a half million people.
I didn’t get another series mainly because the then controller Alan Yentob didn’t like it.
The pilot went out in 1989 and I am going to put it on youtube in the next couple of weeks because I’ve had lots of emails asking me about it.
If the response is good I intend to make the series available on DVD.
I will let you know when you can see the pilot.”
This is, of course, excellent news – and follows on from things Norm was saying at DJ last year. For more details about the series, see Lewisohn – I’ve seen the odd episode, but not the pilot, and I’d love to see the entire series.
Isn’t it weird, though, that there’s a lot of “I” in that post? Is this being done with the cooperation with the BBC, who obviously own the copyright, or not? It probably is, of course, and I’m reading far too much into it, but there seems to be something slightly strange with the wording. We’ll see, I guess.
With thanks to SingingPotato for the news.
