“On the Lot” — week one

Otl_carriejonbrettset2_2They hail from small towns in Texas, Ohio, Indiana, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Mississippi, from Chicago, New York and Manchester, England to South Africa and Italy. And they all want to be filmmakers, so much so they’ve put their lives and day jobs on hold to compete for a $1 million development deal with DreamWorks on the Fox reality-competition series “On the Lot,” produced by Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg.

We know how much they want it because, to a contestant, they all gushed variations on the same theme in the first few minutes of the premiere episode. “I want to direct! I love movies! I’ve wanted to direct since I was a kid! I love movies! This is my big break! This is my big shot! I love movies! I want to be a director!” You get the idea. If not, hop over to the show’s Web site.
