She Said: You guys may have noticed we haven’t posted much lately. Like, real, written posts. I’ve uploaded photos and gifs and stuff, but those He Said/She Said rants y’all like so much have been in short supply. Why? Well, we’re exhausted.
He Said: We’re still writing, just not so much on here. We’re working together on a new sitcom called Spun Out. It stars Dave Foley, Paul Campbell and an amazing cast of comedic actors. It’ll air this year on CTV in Canada. (check your local listings!)
What’s it like working with your partner? Well…!
She Said: My husband’s an amazing writer. He’s an awesome showrunner and on this show, he’s got two great partners. I’m not biased - I’ve worked with quite a few others and he’s basically the best. But that doesn’t mean he’s always great at saying what he means. Or being articulate. Or even comprehensible. This is him pitching an idea:
He Said: Hilarious.
My wife’s great at her job. Funny, good at story, way more diplomatic than I am… but she’s also a total empath - to the point of creating massive angst for herself based on the perceived feeling of others.
She Said: You mean the real feelings. I can tell! Even when they can’t. Everybody puts out a poop-ton of energy all the time, and they’re not even aware of it. Guys, especially, reeeeaaaaally don’t like to express sadness or embarrassment. But just like everybody else, they feel them. Which is gross. So they hurl that energy into the universe so I can feel them! I am SpongeBarb Carepants, soaking up the excess emotion around me, till I’m bloated and dripping with the tears of the universe.
He Said: This is a terrifyingly accurate picture.
She’ll also write encouraging emails or pitch solutions, trying to smooth out any little problem. Thing is, by the time it hits our inbox, we’ve moved on, so we’re all like, “Who is this nutjob, still obsessing over last week’s issue?”
She Said: Okay, that can be me. And who doesn’t wanna be Disney Channel’s London Tipton? But this can also be me after you’ve blurted something awkward in the room:
He Said: It’s true. Your arms are pretty hairy.
One thing we share: we’re not huge fans of getting notes. Our reaction varies from this:
She Said: Generally, though, I think we’re a great team. Like they say (and by “they”, I mean Ben Affleck), marriage is work. And you know what else is work? Work.
That’s what Danny said about Mindy’s Haiti haircut. ’Cause he loved it, ‘cause he loves her, and we love them and they are the greatest.

He Said: Here’s everybody’s favorite TV teen, TINA BELCHER, tripping out on coffee, much like #SheSaid getting her Starbucks fix.
She Said: And you’re Teddy, giant bear hands clutching teeny espresso cup.
