Auteur Watch - Janice Cooke
What's a girl to do?... that is a girl, right? Janice is still exclusively a girl's name? Anyway, so Janice Cooke seems to be stuck in a TV wasteland, but now that TV and the silver screen proper are about half and half these days, both simply struggling to stay fiscally afloat, maybe that's not such a bad place to be. Apparently when you're a TV director, the thing is to not be stuck on one dead end series for the rest of your life. Sure, there's no Gotham or Person of Interest to her credit, but I've heard of Gossip Girl! That's... that's something, right? And I confess, I do like that one title, Hollywood is like High School with Money. On the other hand, something tells me that the show doesn't satirize the concept, but rather revels in it. Don't wanna offend Hollywood's nerds or jocks, or you won't get a good seat in the cafeteria!
