Here’s how the conversation must have gone:
“We’ve got two hours of primetime television that we need to fill this coming weekend. Got any ideas?”
“Well, we could do a Star Wars holiday special.”
“I think that would be a little out of our price range with the special effects and all.”
“Naw, we’ll just shake the camera around and flash the lights. Besides, those kids are under contract, we won’t have to pay them a cent.”
Yeah, that’s totally how it went down.
