  1. "Another day at RNT headquarters. Brian Havik, head of programming, heads in. There's been a meeting called over the planned transmission of a program who's biggest star [name withheld upon request] was recently found to have said things on Twitter that might have devastating effects on the company as a whole."

  3. INT: RNT HQ MEETING ROOM J.
  4.  
  5. Havik: Ok, so what's the plan here?
  6.  
  7. Ian Melrose (channel controller for RNT One): I say just air the damn thing.
  8.  
  9. Stevie Naylor (head of diversity at RNT): I don't agree with that - his opinions are really against what the corporation stands for!
  10.  
  11. Melrose: Who cares what we stand for? We make TV, we air it. We have no say in what the star does in his spare time.

  19. Havik: Quite. Anyways, what I was saying was that we do something else - we put the show online instead.

  21. Naylor/Melrose: Huh?
  22.  
  23. Havik: It's quite simple - we have the RNT Player and the program's already finished; just put it online and that way, we take a hit on the online and not on the channel side of things.
  24.  
  25. Melrose: I like it! Seems like a good way to get everyone what they want.

  28.  
  29. Naylor: ...I guess it's alright.
  30.  
  31. Havik: Ok, good job, team. I'll go tell playout that they've got slots to empty and fill. John will be so pissed at me... (walks out)
  32.  
  33. Melrose: (yells) Isn't he always like that with a schedule change, though?

  37. Melrose (to Naylor): Isn't he?

  39. Naylor shrugs.
