There’s a lot happening behind the scenes at Deadline Hollywood Daily to bring you a better, bigger, and (as usual) ballsy news and analysis website. But it’s also going to take time away from my 24/7 reporting for a few weeks. There already have been some missed stories. And some hours with no posts. And a lot of technical woes. But I’ve given myself permission occasionally to go AWOL and deal with the nuts and bolts behind the website during August — in order to unveil the new DHD after Labor Day weekend. Thanks for your patience.
