It’s been almost two years since my last post… dang!
So much has happened in that time! The most significant of course being the fact that Google Glass (the subject of my last post) has long-since joined the ranks of oh so promising technology like the Segway, the Zune (and who could ever forget those potato chips back in the late 90s that gave you severe diarrhea).
Okay, maybe that isn’t the most significant thing that’s happened.
Lots of other stuff has happened too.
I wrote scripts for two studios. And now I get to wait years to see what will happen with them… if anything. Ah, the sweet life of a screenwriter.
I went to France for the first time to premiere my series H+. When will the rest of Europe see it? No clue. But I met some amazing new friends there, and I’m eager to go back.
And I got engaged! Yep, Cabrera’s gonna be a husband (wow, that word still sounds really weird)… husband to a beautiful girl and my best friend. And I’m really excited.
But this post isn’t actually about what has already happened… it’s about what lies ahead. A wedding, yes… a few more projects on the horizon (with some amazing new colleagues in Europe… sadly none with the title H+2… more on that in another post).
But you guys know, dang well, what this post is about… you read the title…
GILMORE GIRLS REUNION!
Whoa whoa whoa!!! Stop!! Stop screaming!!! Hold on!! Let me clarify!!
Sorry. I should have led into that a little differently.
First off… no… I have no idea if there’s going to be a reunion show, season or film.
That is the number one question I’ve been asked since the show went off the air in 2007… followed by “how was working with Lauren?”
And while I can speak somewhat to the second question (She’s great… but we didn’t have many scenes together). That question about a reunion show is one I simply can’t answer… because I don’t know, nor would I likely know before it hit the press if it was going to happen. Most of you would know before me. Heck, some of you knew I was going to write this post before me.
So… let’s try this again…
GILMORE GIRLS REUNION… PANEL… AT THE ATX TELEVISION FESTIVAL!
Eight years since the show went off the air, our cast is coming together for one night to talk about those awesome years. Now, like I said, if you’re a Gilmore fan, you know this already. If you’re a Gossip Girl fan (or you really loved the movie Gone Girl) well… then you might be at the wrong blog post. But I am right now, as we speak, packing my bags for a three day Television extravaganza.
And it actually isn’t just Gilmore Girls for me. I’ll be hanging with several other close friends in TV.
My buddy Joseph Sikora will be there representing the show Power. You may know Joe as the red-headed, bearded biker on last season’s True Detective… I know Joe as my old College roommate who listened to a LOT of Ska music during those years. Not sure if he still does. I’ll ask him.
Also from Power, my buddy Lela Loren. She played one of the lead roles in my series H+ a few years back. And several others.
But reuniting with my old bandmates in Hep Alien… man, that is going to be one serious trip. And I can’t friggin wait.
So, I don’t want to make this post too long. I’ll save a longer post for after I return. But I wanted to let you know that I’m going to be sharing as much of my experience with you guys as I can. I know there are so many fans who wish they could be at the event. I think EW will be live-streaming it, so you should be covered there.
I’ll also be posting photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. In fact, Keiko and I have already talked about Periscoping some live video over the course of our three days there. So if you don’t have Periscope on your phone, download it now! Tune-in to our twitter feeds to find out when we’re going to be doing it (Keiko’s Twitter, Todd’s Twitter and My Twitter)… in fact, you might even hear about some other surprises these old bandmates have planned while they’re there. That’s all I’m gonna say about that. 😉
And I’ll see y’all in Austin!
