"Mr. And Mrs. Smith Meets The Office"
CB: So because the show didn't exist at that point, was he able legally to take your script, or did he sort of bend the rules for you? ["Basically, these days, because of past lawsuits involving intellectual property, almost no one will take material that wasn't submitted through an agent or entertainment attorney." -- CB]
PK: It was a total gentleman's agreement. It's kind of an argument for why it's so lame that you have to play the game of getting an agent before you can submit a script. I mean, so many people have these sort of sideways entrances into Hollywood. And that's what happened to me, and I'm certainly grateful for it. I certainly had hustled to get other people to read my stuff, and no one had found it that interesting. And of course, when Rob Thomas finds you interesting, then all of a sudden…
CB: …everyone finds you interesting.
PK: [laughs] Yeah. Exactly.
