I’ve been in a long six-month period of development with many projects. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
-an original TV pilot that puts a revisionist supernatural spin on the California Gold Rush
-an adaptation of a sci-fi book into a feature
-a new play called SHEEPDOG (just finished) about a police officer shooting
To write this play I’ve been talking with police officers – primarily officers of color – conducting interviews and diving deep into the complex issue of police violence in this country. I’ve been truly fortunate to speak with Officer Nakia Jones, whose brave testimony after the Alton Sterling shooting struck a chord with me and millions across the country.
