Ordinary Joe

Fall is back! Midseason is back! Pilot season is back! Seasonal broadcast TV development is back on track! Ordinary Joe had no ordinary path to series. It was originally written in 2009 by Matt Reeves. The pilot wasn’t ordered by NBC until January 2020, in that fateful before-time, the script having been bought but not […]

Run the World

There’s plenty of drama, but the comedic dialogue is fast and funny. There are too many one liners to name but one of my personal favorites is when Erika Alexander’s […]

Because even just looking at stills from “It’s a Sin” has me feeling like… you know you’ve been crying so much that your head gets stuffy and achy?
