Ugh! Three Sisters sucks ASS!
It's like, I always call it "The Continuous Loop In Hell." And Three Sisters would be on my continuous loop in hell, and so would Just Shoot Me and Yes, Dear. These shows are just everything I hate and that I've gone out of my way to avoid, and yet, those shows are coming back. I just don't understand it. And there's no way to understand it. You just have to sort of find a way to move on. And some days are easier than others, boy.
Though, if you get on a project you believe in and you get behind and you feel good about, then it almost negates those.
It's like this Honey Vicarro pilot. It's such a cool idea -- I love it! It's really weird, though.
Just for the tape, do me a favor and tell me again what Honey Vicarro is all about. Because I know, but the audience doesn't.
Honey Vicarro is just this weird premise. The premise is that there was an actual detective television show in 1966 called Honey Vicarro that was like, Honey West. You know, a kick-ass female detective that's a combination of James Bond meets Mae West, and the show, at the time, was way too controversial, it was ahead of its time, there was a public uproar and the show was yanked off the air and "oh look, we found an endless supply of tapes" that, for some reason, they made a bunch of tapes. [laughs] So that's basically what the premise is. So it's like a TV show from the sixties, and Jenny McCarthy plays this woman who's a martial-arts expert, she owns a jazz club, but she's also a detective. It's very stylized, but there's something really kind of sweet about it. We've actually cast a couple of other parts beside Jenny. We cast this guy, Desmond Askew, who was in Go, that English kid --
Oh! He's wonderful!
Talk about a cute guy! So adorable in person, so adorable in this part. So, he plays the bartender, and then this guy, Tim DeKay, he had a really boring part on Party of Five, he played Kirsten's husband, but he's so good. He's playing the cop who's sort of Honey's ex-love interest/nemesis. We haven't cast the other two parts. There's the part of this scientist that the Honey Vicarro character has a lesbian love scene with. [laughs] The character's also completely promiscuous but she's not a slut. She's like a guy who just kind of sleeps with people because she feels like it. I think it's really charming. I'm really proud of what I did on it and I'd like to work on it. It's different. It's not some boring rehash of something you've seen a million times. It feels original and I feel like I could do something with it, so, hopefully, it'll go. But it probably won't. [pauses, laughs] And then I'll just take a vacation.
