Oh my, I managed to find this absolute gem from: http://www.natpe.org/natpe/images/pdf/2003pilotbible.pdf
You know what's so awesome about this? It seems to confirm the widespread rumor in Hollywood that the real creator of 2 1/2 Men isn't the person or persons that we're being told.
Remember that 'officially' the show is created by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn. They are the ones that get the big money from the syndication deal, since they are the 'creators'.
The problem here is that according to this official press release from 2003, the pilot was written by Eric Lapidus. If you write the pilot, then you're basically the creator of the show.
So, how is it possible that the guy who wrote the pilot didn't even get a shared created by credit for Two and a Half Men?
I think someone should ask Chuck Lorre. Since he's probably still reading this blog: Chuck, what's going on in here?
