January 20, 2020: On the scripting front…

A productive day! I completed a final pass on my horror script, incorporating some of the notes I received on the first draft.  It was delivered to my agent this morning and will be going out this week to test the waters of that great unpredictable marketplace.  Are people still making horror movies?  Are they…

We are one week out from our final Stargate tweetstorm! The first storm let MGM know that the Stargate fandom is alive and strong and looking forward to a new in-canon Stargate series. This storm will let broadcast and streamers know that the fandom is hungry from a new in-canon Stargate series. Next week, fans…

Downtime? Fuggedaboutit!

I find I have more time to relax and unwind when I'm actually working on a show.  At least, when I'm working and I have addressed any production-related outstanding issues, I feel comfortable making use of the downtime to read or watch something.  When I'm not in production, it's technically all downtime but, really, time…

Check it out - the international times for our upcoming Stargate twitter event. Take note of the hour in your area.  This is for all those fans who weren't able to participate in the last tweetstorm.  That's Saturday, January 25th (ish)!

January 13, 2020: Projects on the go! #AmazingPeopleWithWhomIHaveWorked

Okay, back to it. Had a conversation with my agent today regarding the horror script.  A few notes to address before proceeding.  It's high concept, chock full of solid scares (and humor of course), has a couple of good twists, and would be relatively inexpensive to produce. He thinks it's a slam dunk - but…

January 10, 2020: Revive a popular series! #AmazingPeopleWithWhomIHaveWorked! Mom!

"In this crowded marketplace, if you can start with some kind of brand awareness and IP that has a vocal support and, in this case, a crazy, passionate love for it, you're ahead of the game." [source] The above quote is from FOX Entertainment President Michael Thorn in response to queries about a possible Firefly revival.…

January 9, 2020: Utopia Falls

Back in April of last year, I was invited to attend an event hosted by the Director's Guild of Canada.  The aim of the evening was to connect showrunners and directors in a speed-dating-like setting.  Prior to the date, I was forwarded a list of 200+ directors and instructed to choose six.  Then, on the…

January 7, 2020: Opportunities missed! Opportunities realized!

I've had a fairly successful career to date.  Over 350 hours of produced television.  Over a hundred written.  Over a hundred as a showrunner.  By now, those who have tuned in to my work are aware of my style, the type of work I produce: character-driven stories with an underlying sense of humor that speak…

January 6, 2020: Stargate Superdrive Tweetstorm – European Edition!

As promised, we've planned a Stargate twitter event for European fans who were unable to make December's tweetstorm (on account of it kicking off at approximately 2:00 a.m. their time). We're eyeing a 1:00 p.m. EST kick-off which means European Stargate fans will be tweeting approximately six hours later, about 7:00 p.m. their time. This…
