The call came a few months ago. Some fast-talking Los Angeles-based producer from ABC's "Extreme Home Makeover" called and requested some ideas on projects that would be good for the show.
However, when I asked about the musical act, the "Extreme Home Makeover" representative hemmed and hawed, saying it hadn't been booked yet. In addition, we would not be allowed to do the behind-the-scenes stuff the Los Angeles guy had promised.
Why am I not surprised about the exec's trying to pull off the stunt they did?
Probably just because I'm really cynical.
Brian's way nicer than me. I would have blown the secret with a five inch tall banner headline on the front page.
