Working today on a DIBBLE teleplay (yeah!). Plans for the day include checking out J.T. Turners show up at the West End Theater in Gloucester. He's doing "THE SCARECROW OF RUMNEY MARSH." Yes, I know it should be "Romney", but I guess the author decided no one would notice moving the classic "Dr. Syn" story from England to Mass. I always loved the Disney movie and I've considered doing an audio drama of the book in the past. Perhaps this will light a fire under me. Who knows. The picture I've posted is from the website at the theater.

POWDER RIVER seems to be doing good biz in it's CD release! That's pretty cool! I'm working on getting Season 5 recorded and done by the end of August. That's all for now - back to writing.

I just learned that former CRT Player Armand Fillian passed away on
July 2nd from cancer, at the age of 66. Armand was with us for the
WIZARD OF OZ series (1999), playing the Guardian of the Gate, and the
evil vegetable wizard in "Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz," and many other
voices in those programs. He also played Lord Bowley in THE CHIMES
(2000). He had a great character voice and brought a lot of color to
our recordings. Rest in peace, Armand.

It's the Fourth of July and we're all a year older! Busy day here at the old writing desk. Our DIBBLE SHOW tv project is gaining speed, and it's very exciting. House of Cool is in the process of doing a short animation test, and I've sent them some sound clips to work off of. Can't wait to see it. In the meantime, writing on POWDER RIVER season 5 continues. I need to get some of these recorded this month.

POWDER RIVER SEASON FOUR has just been released (July 1) by Blackstone! They have released a season a month starting back in April - and this is it for a while with the gang in Clearmont. I am writing season 5 right now, and the two-hour feature GUNS OF POWDER RIVER is in editing, and will run on XM later this month. Also, aside from writing the PR scipts, I am reading two books (prospects for upcoming productions), writing some treatments, and we have several productions in various stages of completion, as well as upgrading our music dept. So, things are far from slow around here. How was your weekend?
