Forked tongues

Wallowing in a Monday morning funk? Thinking you deserve a more glamorous job? Well, according to TV scribe and sitcom humorist Ken Levine, it’s not all rosy in Hollywoodland, where the official language is doublespeak and people die slow, painful deaths by poisoned pen.

He offers a handy glossary to help you understand the lingo, rife with such expressions as “fielding offers”, “projects in development”, “looking into financing”. When you know how the spin works, they’re easy to decipher. These phrases all mean “unemployed”.

Happy Monday!
