While CARNIVÀLE was under consideration at HBO for a series order, I got hired by the terrific Alex Gansa on this short-lived CBS series. Great cast and kinda fun. Although the DVD set is available, it is not currently being streamed on any of the major networks. But you can watch the pilot episode here.
This NBC contemporary espionage take on DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE might have worked had the only split operative been Christian Slater's character. Unfortunately, there was an entire team of splits and the show was headache-inducing in its needless complexity. It was fun working on the Paramount lot, though. You can watch the (extremely lo-res) pilot episode here.
Blood and guts and swords and sandals and studs. This show was wall-to-wall testosterone and a hoot to write. My favorite moment, an exasperated Steve DeKnight shouting, "No, Dan. Spartacus is not going to strangle Batiatus with his own intestines." You can watch it on Netflix.
A really beautiful, highly original adaptation. Nuanced, sophisticated stories and characters and first rate production values from the same crew that produced DOWNTON ABBEY, featuring John Rhys Meyers and a lovely ensemble--the last thing one would expect to see on NBC. Tragically underwatched. You can stream it on Amazon Prime.
James Spader is a true gentleman and the finest actor for whom I've had the pleasure of writing monologues. Check out my episode 3.18, CAPE MAY. It's a European art film masquerading as an episode of primetime broadcast drama. It also happens to include one of my favorite scenes ever. You can stream it on Netflix.
