WD is going Hollywood. That's right, today we're kicking off a fabulous new blog Script Notes to keep you in the know about writing for the stage and screen.
Please welcome writer Chad Gervich. Chad is a television producer, published author, and
award-winning playwright who spent five years as a development
executive and producer with the Littlefield Company, former NBC
president Warren Littlefield's production company with Paramount
Television (now with ABC).
Chad created and produced the Style network’s hit comedy/reality
series, Foody Call, and recently executive produced Celebrity Drive-By,
a talk show pilot for E! Entertainment. Last fall, Chad developed
Dirty Laundry, an internet soap for FOX TV Studios, and wrote and
produced on Wig Out, an online sitcom for Warner Brothers.
Most recently, Chad’s book Television: A-Z was sold to Random
House/Crown for an August, 2008 release.
Chad has also worked in development at NBC Studios, Sony Pictures, CBS
Production, and Twentieth Century Fox. He’s been worked on countless
series and pilots, including "Malcolm in the Middle" (FOX), "Love,
Inc." (UPN), "Keen Eddie" (FOX/Bravo), "Do Over" (WB), "Time Tunnel"
(FOX), and "Star Search" (CBS).
And, yes, this is an especially timely topic, in a rather ironic way, since there's a looming screenwriters strike. Here's an article from today's Los Angeles Times for the latest on the seemingly inevitable strike: Studios, writers quit talks at deadline; strike looms.
I can't wait to see what Chad has to tell us about the strike, and all other script-related news and views.
Welcome Chad, we're so glad you're here!
