Here’s the trailer for The Bridge, the show I’ve been lucky enough to help write for the last few months. I will probably post more about the experience at some point, but needless to say, it’s been pretty radical to learn how television is made and to translate (as best as I can) what I know of writing books and stories into a very different medium. Characters are characters, though, and this show has a whole lot of great ones. I hope you’ll watch this summer.

It’s been a few years since The Cradle was optioned, and after a few different Hollywood lives and a few different setups, things have circled back a bit, as they are wont to do in that industry. I’ve been hired by the producers to write the screenplay, mostly because I’ve had a little more experience with film and TV of late, and I’m going back to the world of Matt, Marissa, Renee, and young Joe. It feels good! I’ll be sure to post news as it comes down the pike, friends; there should be a bit more to come. For now, EXT. WISCONSIN HIGHWAY.
Posting this here to commemorate my realization that I am basically the same as the guy from Darkon.
