Open Letter to the CW
I read that you are going to Reboot Beauty and the Beast: (CW To Reboot 1980s ‘Beauty And The Beast’ – Deadline.com)
DON"T! DO NOT DO THIS!
If you knew or understood what story arcs, characterization, or mood where in fiction, I would not be so adamantly against this. This show had 2 unrecastable actors in the lead roles, and was a story of longing and unrequited love that your tween audience will not be able to understand.
If You Must
If you are committed to doing this,
- Please watch the original.
- Cast Ron Perlman to play father as an homage to the original and to give some gravitas to the series
- Hire writers who understand subtlety, nuance, and longing.
Eric & Brian
Your original programming would have better ratings if you did not ostracize a segment of your audience. For better or worse if you do go forward with the show I probably will never see it due to your stand against cable-cutters and your continued efforts to make watching your shows as difficult as possible... Thank You? I think...
