October 18, 2019: Riding the development merry-go-round!

So, I'm circling the week of November 11th to be back in L.A. for another round of pitches and generals.  This time, I'll be going out with one big pitch - and a few briefer targeted pitches including that military sci-fi series, the far future spaceship series, and the high concept horror movie (or possibly…

October 15, 2019: Back home!

I'm back home following a whirlwind 3-day visit to Montreal to visit with mom, sis, and my cousin who was in the hospital for heart surgery.  By all accounts, it went well and she's hopefully on the road to a speedy recovery.  She'd been complaining of trouble breathing for three weeks now, assuming it was…

October 11, 2019: Spooky Friday at the ROM!

Ooooh.  Spooky.  Just in time for Halloween.  The Royal Ontario Museum is hosting a horror-themed exhibition: It's Alive!  Classic Horro and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection. Akemi's reaction upon glimpsing this classic film poster for The Creature from the Black Lagoon: "He looks like one of the Real Wives of Beverly Hills". Haven't…

October 10, 2019: This and That!

Had dinner with writer-producer Alan McCullough (Stargate, Reign, Private Eyes).  It was great catching up - and hard to believe that next year will mark the 25th anniversary of SG-1's premiere.  25 years!  It feels just like yesterday that my pugs were running the halls of the Bridge Studios while the gang and I spun…

October 5, 2019: Secrets of Stargate!

Over on twitter, I'm offering tidbits of little known behind-the-scenes trivia under the hashtag #SecretsOfStargate.  Well, they're little known only if you haven't been a blog regular for the past 10+ years.  But, on the off-chance you're late to the party... We interrupt this blog entry for an EMERGENCY REQUEST!  Akemi needs a good cauliflower…
