    The D Rex Goes to Hollywood !!

    It's official. The D Rex has arrived at DMC CA GG, to get a little prep work done
    in advance of being filmed in a TV pilot over the next few days in Hollywood.

    Sorry, not many details right now (I am under contract), but for those of you on
    the West Coast near DMC CA GG, the D Rex will be there tonight and tomorrow.

    I will be flying out myself tomorrow and I will be at the shop by mid-afternoon.
    Feel free to stop by and see the D Rex (and buy some parts while you are there).

    More details to follow.

    Later,
    Rich W.

    Hmm, Reality show or sitcom? When would it likely "Air" if the pilot is picked up. Summer or Fall?

    Hollywood Update ...

    Since "I don't do FaceBook" (sorry, I just do not have the time now), I am not sure
    what Don has posted, but I am limited as to what I can say and do, under contract,
    until the TV Pilot is aired. I may know more of a release time-line by mid-May or so.

    However, I can point to other public knowledge items, links, photos, etc.

    For example: There is only one "in production" TV show currently listed on IMDB
    that features a DeLorean Monster Truck, so you can do the math.

    Here is the link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2226507/
    (this may answer some questions and prompt other questions)

    I can also post a few photos of the D Rex taken at the same time as the filming,
    but ones not directly connected with the actual scenes during filming of the show.

    More photos and details to follow.

    Thanks,
    Rich W.

    Looks like it's based off the UK TV series.

    Like many other successful shows in the past, like All in the Family, Sanford & Son,
    and most recently, The Office ... all of these shows were based on UK shows.

    For each one of these "American-ized" versions of successful UK shows, there are
    at least one or more failed attempts, so we will have to see how it is received.

    My friends in the UK said the original show was great, but they are unsure how well
    the show will translate, since there is plenty of British humor embedded in the show.

    Attaching another photo that appears like D Rex was added to the NASCAR circuit.

    I grew up watching most of the UK telly shows, so I am very familiar with most of them. But you are right! Only time can tell and how it will convert over.

    Looking forward to it though, love to see how good the writer is with the conversion from RHD to LHD

    Adding a few more photos of the D Rex, pre-dawn, at the Holiday Inn Express
    in Pasadena, CA. Yeah, I was taking up more than a few spaces in the lot.

    The palm trees in the background were impressively tall ... well over 40ft tall.
