Kimmy Gets A Husband!

📝 Ever since I graduated from college almost 15 years ago, I wanted to become a sitcom writer. My first spec script was for Will & Grace back in 2003. Let's just say I understood the characters but that was about it. Fast forward to 2016 (and many TV writing classes later) and I've written specs of The Office, The Mindy Project, 30 Rock, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

I've also written various pilots (my own idea for a TV show) ranging from Dating Divas - a show that follows a mother-daughter duo who own a dating service in Albuquerque, NM back in 1999 - to Downsize - a comical look into the world of weight loss centers.  


"Hashbrown No Filter."

With the hilarious Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt coming back for season 2 on April 15th, I decided to get people together at Atwood Kitchen & Bar for a taped table read of my own spec entitled "Kimmy Gets A Husband!" The super talented Tituss Burgess also recently launched his own line of wine inspired by the show called Pinot by Tituss, so obviously I had to serve that to my guests as well. I was lucky enough to get Studio4 actor Timothy Park and seasoned actor Jimmy Palumbo to join in on the fun, as well as my supportive friends to help make my script come to life. 

Then my camera STOPPED RECORDING after 30 minutes.

I lost roughly the last 6 pages of content (and the best parts in my opinion) but the show must go on! I've included my script below so you aren't left hanging. 

 


Yes, Diet Water makes an appearance. Let's just say it's new and improved.


Here's my version of what happens in Season 2, Episode 1 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
