Promo pics of Summer Glau in "Good Morning Rabbit". The pilot was being filmed just a few days ago.

I so want to go on a quest with Summer Glau in search of the perfect hamburger!! That would be the best date ever!

National Hamburger Day is December 21. Summer, if you're reading this, please pencil me in if at all possible. It's a Monday. KThx, Alan/
Is that the eleventh Doctor in the last pic or is it just me?

I don't know, since I don't know what you look like.
To be completely honest, it very well could be.
Does anyone know what studio or network this is associated with? I can't find that info anywhere? That's not at all a good sign.
Reading about it, I'm not entirely certain this isn't an independently-produced pilot.
Strange that in the opening description (in the purple boxout) they compare it to an animated series from 14 years ago...

Double negative has led to proof positive! It's a pilot to be shopped around.

An AWESOME animated series from 14 years ago...
Another crazy/eccentric role for Summer? I want people to see her range, dammit, and this is just more pigeon-holing.

Grrr.
Could this be picked up for midseason?
I'm a little befuzzled... If Summer is a character they come to in order to celebrate National Hamburger Day, does that imply that Summer will only be in the Pilot?

Silly me, I've been using too much logic as of late; gotta cut down. ;)

If I were a smart, savvy Producer, I would put Summer in a Series Adaptation of the Ballet film "The Turning Point", which starred Shirley MacClain and Anne Bancroft, with some of Ballet's top stars. Or I'd be Joss and make "Serenity: The Series", which is even more smart and savvy. :P

Does anyone know an example of an independently produced pilot actually, you know, getting picked up in the last couple years? I know I sound kind of Debbie downer, but I don't think this will ever see the light of day if it is independently produced. Maybe as a web series it will work.

As far as I have been able to tell, that's certainly how it would seem (and I've been following this project very closely for some time now) unless - and I'm speculating here - Good Morning Rabbit is planned to have a stock supporting cast (like the show Wishbone for example) where each actor - excepting the leads, of course - appears in nearly every episode, but as a totally different character depending upon each episode's storyline (essentially the same casting methodology used by theater companies since time immemorial.) Given the general surreal-sounding premise of this show, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this were the case.
Is Party Down independent? The only production company listed is Slaverats, which is Rob Thomas's thing. I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know what kind of production values it has.
hacksaway, that's the first thing that came to my mind. Rob filmed the original pilot presentation in his backyard and shopped it around to networks for over a year, I think, before Starz bit.

brinderwalt, that's an idea! I'm not sure that's how it would work, but I wouldn't be surprised if Summer's character appeared in other episodes.
