Many years ago I had a friend who directed/produced a television show for the state affiliate for SC/ETV. He had a co-producer.
They worked their butts off on it with the hopes that it would be picked up nationally.
They had their hopes raised, dashed, raised, dashed.
One fateful day iames received a phone call You've hit the big time, pack your bags.
James called his partner...no answer at home, phone....?
Emergency found his partner, details too grisly - LST- note said he had lost hope of syndication.
If he had only waited one, just one day.
Who if any of us knows what goes through another person's mind regardless of whether they are a spouse, child, family, friend.
Sad, so very sad.
