How Steven S. DeKnight got his first professional writing job on MTV's Undressed. With added bonus J. August Richards.
"At one point, I realized, "I have to get off the show. I can't do this anymore." I was writing a scene, and our mandate was always to get people without their clothes on at some point. And I'm writing this scene between these two high school girls, and I have to get one of them in their underwear, so during their conversation, she starts fidgeting and says "This tag in my shirt is driving me crazy!" and whips off her shirt. I said, "That's it! I'm out! I can't do it anymore!" I left to join Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
