In 2013, when the newspaper business was going to hell, I pitched this idea to a company that owned a number of papers. The idea was that I would do a sit-com that would be presented in five-minute episodes each weekday. By the end of the week the viewer would see the whole episode. This would be the new comics – with ads – and a new revenue stream for a dying industry. They loved the idea but never came up with the money to produce it. It was Quibi before it’s time.
