Leverage This!

Had an exceptionally interesting (and exclusive!) talk with John Rogers last night on Geekerati where he spilled his guts about his new television show for TNT -- LEVERAGE. If you want to learn what it's like independently setting up a cable series in this era of "new television" then you'll want to tune in to the show player in my right sidebar. >>>>>>>

(It actually didn't take as long as I imagined it would as we had him under the hot lamp and he was singing like a canary in no time. I didn't even have to use the cattle prod or "big bertha.")

John talks about the 20 million or so other things he's doing as well. Give it a listen.

I sort of hate him now for his super-genius. Bastard.

**and yet I still secretly hope he'll hire me someday...much love, John!

a fine, fine 80 minutes worth of listening enjoyment. Better than mine, anyway... And that's all my fault.

To me, he will always be that comedian who told jokes about getting a degree in theoretical physics and his honeymoon in Ottawa.

I am still not used to thinking about him as a successful television writer.
