Twitter Feed Exposes Ridiculous Network Notes To Producers
Exec Suggestions Often Make No Sense
It took me to a Twitter page called Network Notes (@TVNetworkNotes), which is a collection of — allegedly — real suggestions passed on by television execs to the creative minds behind the shows they broadcast.
“Producers biggest complaints these days is that network notes are given to us often by people who’ve never made TV, often contradicting themselves or saying things you can’t believe they’re saying,” my friend wrote. “Finally there is a site that culls them together in one place.”
The feed — which identifies the networks, but not the show or note giver — actually began on February 17, 2011. Today it includes 95 priceless bits of corporate boardroom advice.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
