Bullying is Alive and Well in Hollywood – Part II

“And that bully goes on, uncalled upon, to his next project to bully 

someone else.

Less than a month since that first post, I heard the guy and his second-in-commend are working again. Yes, what happened there, on that shoot, stayed there. It wasn’t kicked up the chain of commend.

I was amazed, shook my head and pitied the people (or as they are called today – peeps) who have to go through that experience.

I don’t know the person who wrote this and in the name of human decency (and because it’s unauthorized) I redacted all the names. It was written recently, by someone on that new production, and it speaks for itself.




They are truly nuts in every sense of the word.  They lie about everything, they have zero funds to do anything and they keep the creators in the dark and look to blame and throw people under the bus all the time…”


“… A high up in the studio came in last week and we had a honest and open dialogue on their unethical, rude and insane behavior and how I am confused and taken back that he could hire someone as foul and unprofessional to represent the studio and himself. He was the cool cat politician so he said he would look into it. Sure he will?”


“… It really is a shame that these are the people running a show like this. Life is way too short to work in this kind of toxic environment. Preparing an exit strategy and luckily they have handed me one on a silver platter. Hazardous working conditions with a incredibly unprofessional producing team. “

Is someone up there listening? These kind of producers are ruining your shows! All they care about is to come on or under budget. They approve purchases too late, they squeeze every department, they push, and badmouth,  directors for creating overtime on an impossible schedule and they are creating a toxic environment where no one gives a rat’s ass about the show. Every department is doing the bare minimum until they find the next show to go to and jump ship. In the minds of these producers everyone is there to fuck up their (wrong and sometimes impossible) budget and they will fight tooth and nail to show they can do it cheaper. In that kind of environment, no one cares about the end product.
