Good friend and Act One alumn, Dan Ewald, has graciously consented to assume the coveted COTM chair as guest blogger while I am in the Caribbean (feeling guilty about being on vacation in this particular week...but that's another post.).
Dan has an extensive background as a writer of magazine articles, teleplays, and screenplays, and - with his writing partner Rajeev Sigamony (also an Act One alumn) - just inked a feature deal a few weeks ago of which I hope he will blog a bit. I could only find one of his magazine articles on line here. (Dan, do let us know where others might be!)
Here's his Hollywood bio:
Writers Dan Ewald and Rajeev Sigamoney partnered several years ago, joined by a love for writing comedic television. Together, they've worked at Carsey-Werner, Angry Films, FOX and Lifetime. Ewald and Sigamoney shot an independent pilot in 2004, a sitcom called "The Room" featuring Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Debra Jo Rupp (That 70s Show), and Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live). The show was shot at the CBS Radford Studios, and repped by Principato/Young (Reno 9-1-1). Ewald and Sigamoney are represented as writer/producers by Endeavor Talent Agency.
Dan, you are now an honorary Emily Dickinson afficionado, ex-nun, Red Sox fan from Rhode Island. Take it away...
