I’ve been MIA for a while after the past year, but today is a special day.
We are marking, incredibly, the 13th birthday of TV Calling!
This site, this community, this platform could not exist with you. You right here, reading this. As always, I want to give a huge THANK YOU for your support of TV Calling even through the hard times. I might say it every year, and it is still true after all this time.
We took a break from Paper Team a few months ago, however (much like this site) it isn’t the end. Just a little pause until we get our bearings straight.
Despite all this, the past twelve months have been, once again, our strongest on record. We achieved a new peak back in October and November with nearly 2,000(!) daily visitors on TV Calling. Paper Team also reached new milestones earlier this year, with over 350,000(!) downloads. Sublime.
It is true that I haven’t been as active online as I’ve been in the past. I’ve drifted away from social media. There wasn’t a spec list this year, in part due to fellowships moving away from specs. However, specs continue to make a comeback on the professional side, with showrunners reading more and more of them. So perhaps the spec list will make its return in the future.
We know how much you value our TV writing content, which is why we hope this little break isn’t stopping you from continuing your own journey. We’re in tough times, but (despite everything going on) know that you’re not alone.
Here’s to year fourteen, and even more beyond.
