It’s been a rough year, but today is a day of celebration as we mark the 12th birthday of TV Calling!
Pretty incredible to see how far we’ve come. If every year of existence were its own month, we’d have a full year’s worth. (Wait, what?)
This site and community wouldn’t exist without you. Yes, you reading this right now. So on that note, let me say a huge THANK YOU for your continuous support. I repeat it every year, and it remains true.
For my stat fiends, once again the past twelve months (i.e. year) have been our best on record. In fact, TV Calling was reaching peaks of 700-1,000 daily visitors during May sweeps! And that’s not even mentioning all the Paper Team accolades, including the podcast reaching 265,000 downloads. Surreal.
I’ll acknowledge there have been a couple of misses recently – including no yearly “spec list” for the first time in (literally) a decade. Hopefully you can forgive these mishaps due to, well, the world imploding et al. Interestingly, this also happened on the year when specs are making a comeback for several showrunners and staffing prospects (more on that later).
But all is not lost as I know there’ll be plenty of content in weeks and months and years to come, both on TV Calling and Paper Team.
These days in particular, we hope you are not only safe and secure but on your way to thriving. Despite all the hardships going on, know you are never alone – I’m right here by your side.
Here’s to year thirteen, and many more beyond.
