Employee Megan, floater, Big Television Studio (duh)
Born: September 11, 1979
Like many floaters before her, Megan found herself in this ignominious position through misfortune and subsequent desperation. She's as Southern California as Southern California gets, without having any knowledge of what precisely that means (though she has a sneaking suspicion it has little to do with her knowledge of the first four Van Halen albums). Full of quiet rage, she's worked at numerous desks in a variety of fields in order to get where she is today: exactly the same place she started in.
People Person: In her time at Big Television Studio, Megan has befriended every single awesome person who eventually decided that entertainment was not for them. "I really liked them. They were good people", she says, continuing, "which is probably why they left". In this industry, the importance of networking cannot be underestimated. "It's nice to hear about how happy people are in grad school, back east, or in some job where they are well-compensated and respected."
"Not mouse, never mouse. If anything *rat*!": Megan remembers watching All About Eve as a child and finding it's portrayal of the arts hilariously hyperbolic. She thought, wouldn't it be funny if people were to act like that? She thought wrong.
Show Me No Money: Megan's generation xy sense of entitlement has taken a severe beating on the path to becoming 2005's next generation floater. "Did I mention I went to Duke? Seriously, it's like a top 10 school. Top 6 even. Oh, excuse me, I have to get this...."
Big Picture: Very little is expected from Megan, who is now trying to get back on a tv show. To do so, she will take a job on a pilot which may or may not get picked up for 13 episodes, which may or may not get a back nine order, which may or may not get a second season. If the likely "may not" occurs at any of those steps, where can we expect to see her? "Floating, I guess."
