NBC opposing LA bike-path to prevent script-lobbing?

Dwiff sez, "Universal Studio blocks proposed bike path for fear that aspiring screenwriters will use it to throw their scripts onto the lot. No, seriously."

As Los Angeles struggles to restore its namesake river, a considerable obstacle has arisen — NBC Universal, which is trying to block a public bike path from traversing its property along the waterway…

One bike advocate said Universal executives told him they feared that people would use the path to lob unsolicited screenplays onto the studio's nearby production lot — something that apparently happens at other spots when a Universal film scores big at the box office.


(Thanks, Dwiff!)
