Some Things I’ve Done Recently, August 2017

Brat shows

Over the past few months, I’ve written two series for the new digital company Brat. The first one, Misshaps, is already out. The second one, Flunky’s Upset, will be out in the fall and features folks including Meghan McCarthy, Denzel Dion, and Raegan Beast. You can read a little more about Flunky’s Upset (and how all of the shows in Brat’s fall slate take place in the same fictional high school) in this Variety piece, or check out an episode of Misshaps here:

Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz

I wrote an episode for the forthcoming season two of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, produced by Warner Brothers Animation. The first season is currently available on Boomerang.

The Screenwriters Colony

I spent two and a half weeks in June on Nantucket as part of the Screenwriters Colony for Episodic Comedy. Being given that much time to focus on a script while surrounded by funny, hardworking people was an incredible experience that I’m really, really grateful for. Plus, I met a lot of great turtles.

Introducing THE EYE (with EYE Q and A)

I am pleased to introduce THE EYE.

Q&A for THE EYE

Q: Can THE EYE tell my future?
A: YES. You WILL DIE.

Q: When will I die?
A: IN THE FUTURE.

Q: Does THE EYE make any noise?
A: THE EYE emits a high-pitched hum. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO HARMONIZE WITH THE EYE UNLESS YOU ARE PART OF A BARBERSHOP HARMONY SOCIETY-SANCTIONED QUARTET OR QUINTET.

Q: Will THE EYE attend my party, art opening, comedy show, or film premiere?
A: First of all, THE EYE congratulates you on your celebratory event. THE EYE is happy to stand watch over your event under the following conditions:

  • THE EYE is not expected to speak, unless it is delivering a speech that was written by THE EYE. (THE EYE is very happy to write a speech with at least two (2) week’s notice.)
  • THE EYE is provided a beverage, a straw to drink from, AND photographic evidence of said straw existing. This photographic evidence must be emailed or texted to THE EYE at least five (5) hours before the event.
  • THE EYE is allowed two (2) guests. (When you are friends with THE EYE and THE EYE is not speaking, being a +1 can be lonely. +2 allows for two friends of THE EYE to speak to each other, although they will mostly just talk about THE EYE.)

Q: Will THE EYE critique my art/comedy/film?
A: If you care more about BEING CRITIQUED than BEING SEEN, THE EYE might not BE FOR YOU. However, if YOU CRAVE JUDGEMENT, be sure to ask for THE EYE’S E-Z CRITIQUE SHEET before THE EYE leaves your event.

Q: Is THE EYE interested in being my friend?
A: THE EYE is 100% INTERESTED in YOUR FRIENDSHIP. But DO NOT TAKE THE EYE’S FRIENDSHIP LIGHTLY. THE EYE is a KIND and FIERCELY LOYAL FRIEND whose feelings should not be MEDDLED WITH.

Q: Where can I receive more information about THE EYE?
A: Look inside YOUR OWN TRUE HEART. If that does not help, TRY THIS.
