    Glad you asked. Fun fact- I get around 400 to 500 Jaywalking fan fictions of various mediums (stage, television, novella, etc.) every day. I’m usually able to throw it away after a very brief analysis and critique of the letter’s CMYK color value and stamp choice. Here’s where it gets interesting.

    WESTMARK HOUSEHOLD, CIRCA 2013
    -I get an interesting letter in the mail. It has no return address, and has a stamp that simply says “The Lost Episode”. Utterly baffled, I open the letter. What mysteries could it possibly hold?

    ‘Max, I loved what you did with Jaywalking. In fact, I took the liberty of creating a ‘lost episode’ that I relinquish all legal rights too for you to use at your discretion. Love, -Your Biggest Fan’.

    The ‘lost episode’ consisted of Jay and a fictitious twin sister (story arcs, man) that sat on a couch, addressing various questions of a seemingly unrelated variety. Simply put, it was brilliant. However, Jay wasn’t ready to address the major physical discrepancy between the source material and our reality: the fictitious Jay’s red hair. As a purveyor of cinematic arts, I was convinced that “The Lost Episode” could only be completed with a stand-in. I scanned the yearbook and directory, and found the perfect star- best friend and theatrical alum James Boehme. As you probably have noticed, “Jay” and “James” both start with “Ja”, a coincidence I found to be cinematically perfect for my opus. As I began cleaning the set for the first day of photography, an editor pulled me to the side, and requested that I change the name from “The Final Episode” to “60 Seconds With James and Emma Boehme”. And thus, a legend was born.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Love, Max
