Judy Greer, Joe Murray and Mark Haslett at the Luna Around the World record.

Sorry, way too long between posts. Been working on my pilot for PBS which I LOVE LOVE LOVE. It’s turning out better than my expectations, and I feel it’s something that is needed right now children’s programming. Great to work on something that is putting something of real value out there.

Things didn’t work out with Joan Cusack. I won’t get into any dirty laundry here. Let’s just say Joan didn’t seem entirely committed to the project. But it all worked out for the better because we got extremely talented actress Judy Greer: (IMDB)  to be the lead role, and I feel her voice works better, and she was such an amazing joy to work work with ( above is Judy, myself and co-exec producer and head writer Mark Haslett at the record).

The materials just got shipped to our Canadian animation team, so things will lighten up a bit until the the film comes back.

My two year old can’t stop watching the animatic for the project ( yes, at home I have to review a new pass of the animatic, and Louis comes to watch.) Glad he likes it.

More to come.

    While looking for the song about fighting city hall to remind my son who is 25 of the good times we had watching Rocko together, I found a partial image of Donald Frump, a white elephant. Seems rather prophetic.

    Hey Joe, it’s been a while!

    What’s this new program going to be? Is it a reprise of “Frog in a Suit”, or something different?
