In this interview about the upcoming season of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, David Cross gets into what’s different about shooting a TV show in Britain vs. America. Less input from the network, a more compact 6-episode model, blah blah blah let’s get to what’s really important, the food.
Craft services suck. There’d be tea – tons of tea… tons and tons of tea – maybe some coffee, some sweets, and this awful, dense, moist thing that everybody would love to eat that was horrific. And a tin of biscuits. I’m used to a huge spread they put out in the states just in case a guy from the network might drop by for a minute. There didn’t seem to be much of a situation in which the suits, to use the American terminology, would come over.
Oh my gosh, WHAT is the “dense, moist thing”? This is going to bother me all day. Are we talking a damp fruitcake? Or is it like a very thick pudding situation? Any British readers care to weigh in?
