Truth be told, there's probably a top ten of these souless creatures in this town-- a rogue's gallery of sorts --but any readers curious as to what it's like to work for an overbearing, pathologically abusive, quasi-psychotic director should click here.
Working for assholes comes with the Hollywood turf. Sooner or later, we all have to work for one of these ogres, but there's nothing in my thirty year career quite as harrowing as the long, ugly day endured and beautifully described by The Script Goddess. Although I don't know for certain, I have a pretty good idea who Scripty had the misfortune to work for -- and he's The Worst, a legend in the television commercial community for all the wrong reasons. That he's so very talented at what he does only makes his monstrous behavior all the more infuriating.
Read it and weep -- and be glad it was Scripty, and not you.
