Today’s post is some shameless self-promotion about my latest film endeavor, Gametime: Tackling the Past, airing Saturday, September 3, at 8 p.m. on NBC.
Sometimes I get asked by aspiring writers and producers how my career in film and TV got started. While there are undoubtedly as many paths to success as there are successful people, that old saying “it’s who you know that counts” is actually true in Hollywood. The word “nepotism” comes from the Greek word nepos, which means “nephew.” And in my case, that shoe fits… literally. So here’s Part 1 of how it all started for me.
I offer all these professional and personal credentials not out of hubris, but to show you that even an average schmuck like me can rise out of obscurity and actually find success in one of the most competitive businesses in the world. And live to talk about it.
For the “Petes” of this world that I offer this website. I hope somehow it enlightens you, helps you hone your skills, makes you laugh and blesses your socks off. And I look forward to hearing from you often in the comment box, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
