Keeping Busy

Just finished writing a screenplay for a story we've been working on for a little over a year. Must admit it was fun writing for the screen instead of radio!

ZORRO AND THE PIRATE RAIDERS is in full swing with post production. The folks at Zorro Productions like what they have heard so far, so that's awesome! We are almost halfway finished with post.

Jeremy Benson will be replacing David Alley as the co-star in our new series JARREM LEE - GHOST HUNTER. David has been called to Hollywood for a 21 week shoot on a new series! How cool is that!? I'm very happy for him. David recorded 6 episodes before he got the good news, and Jeremy steps into episode 7 on Monday night. I was asked if I was worried about changing a lead actor mid-series; we already did it in THE NEW DIBBLE SHOW when Deniz Cordell took over the role of Jake from Nick Aalerud. Just remember the two Darren's from BEWITCHED. I think we'll be okay.

We have new programs airing on our SIRIUS/SM show this summer! I think they start next week; New shows include J.T. Turners A VISIT WITH AESOP, which kicks off the new line up; and watch for the 12 episode MOONFLEET, as well as PERRY MASON AND THE CASE OF THE VELVET CLAWS and PERRY MASON AND THE CASE OF THE SULKY GIRL. Also running July 4th weekend will be our 1999 production of GETTYSBURG. This is the first time this show has been broadcast, and it will run as a 3 hour special. So, keep checking the BOOK RADIO schedule on Sirius / XM for details. I'll post the times as soon as I get them.

Our third collaboration with the great Ray Bradbury has won us our 4th Ogle Award! THE HALLOWEEN TREE won the Silver Ogle for Best Fantasy production of 2008!

WOWIE~ZOWIE! Things are really cooking at the moment! Exciting news about the movie screenplay, yay!
As long as a production is interesting and well done, most people don't object to actors being swtched out for reasons beyond the control of the producers.
I look forward to listening to the new line~up on Sirius/XM. I think it's time they gave you a whole hour (it would mean less time reading Harlequin novels... yawn... z-z-zzzz)!
THE HALLOWEEN TREE is fabulous, and the music... perfectly enhances the mood and action of the production! It SHOULD be getting recognition!
Keep up the great work!

Jerry, congratulations on the Silver Ogle for The Halloween Tree! It is much deserved.

I hope you get to do more Bradbury in the near future.
