Friedkin’s On the Lot


Will usher in show’s turn to horror

Anyone catch the inaugural run of Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg’s “On the Lot” last night? It pretty much summed up the humility of this business. Strangely, I spotted my old college roommate (Andy Hunt, the one who was heaped praise by the show’s judges), but that’s beside the point…

Variety reports The Exorcist‘s William Friedkin – who has been enjoying a fairly positive critical wave for Bug – will serve as a guest judge on the series during the show’s “horror film section.” Last night’s episode found Carrie Fisher, Brett Ratner and Garry Marshall pushing wannabe Hollywood players through a “pitch” challenge.
