A NEW SERIES ON NOGGIN & NICK JR

 

I've been busy showrunning this new Noggin class! Starring Paw Patrol's Rubble and Alvin Ailey Dance Instructor Keith Alexander, Dance Squad with Ailey is a an introduction to different dance genres for preschool aged children. In December, our Holiday special aired on Nick Jr in addition to streaming on the Noggin App. The first full season of Dance Squad with Ailey is premiering this spring!

As a former dancer, developing and directing this series has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I'm so excited to share dance with children, and I can't wait to show off the finished show!

FESTIVAL & COMPETITION SUCCESSES

This past festival season was a lot of fun for my half hour family multi-cam comedy script, Super Dumb. It reached the Top 100 in Launch Pad's TV Pilot Competition, was a semifinalist in the Filmmatic Pilot Awards, and a Finalist and Official Selection at the Hollyshorts Film Festival. One of just four TV scripts selected for the finals, and the only comedy, this was particularly exciting for the project!

Thanks to these exciting successes, Super Dumb was added to The Red List. It was ranked #1 in Family Television (half hour) genre category, and in the top 2% of all Television (half-hour) scripts on Coverfly.
