Summer of My Content

The Graceland writers' room has wrapped. Season 2 premieres on June 11, 2014. I'm on the prowl for new adventures and the bait I've laid has lured a big one.

Score One for the Good Guys

My pal Gregg Hale is riding the Sundance happy train today.  S-VHS, an anthology horror film Gregg co-directed (a sequel to VHS) has been picked up for distrubution by Magnolia.  I met Gregg years ago when I came aboard the Fox show, FreakyLinks.  Gregg and his partner, Ricardo Festiva, had created the show to exploit the "found footage" concept Gregg and his earlier partners had previously executed with The Blair Witch Project.  Congratulations, Gregg!
