This Book Sounds Like Fun

A Martian Wouldn't Say That

A reviewer on the Barnes and Noble site writes:

This book is a highly amusing compilation of the real-life memos that network execs would send to show producers and writers regarding content. It's what you'd more or less expect from a comedy book, except everything is real... high-powered, high-paid execs contradicting themselves, saying things that make no sense, etc. It gives insight into the ludicruous process that leads to the TV we eventually see on our sets every night! (After you read this book, you may ask yourself how anything good ever GOT to the TV.)
