Here are two terrific Variety articles about Playground Productions, Mattel’s new Entertainment Studio that I’m happy to be a part of:
…and that’s because in the time since my last post, I’ve moved to Los Angeles with my wife, Tina, our twin boy and girl, Oliver and Bailey, and our dog, Cosmo.
Mattel recruited me to join their new Entertainment Studio, Playground Productions, as Head Writer and Lead Creative on “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” and “Max Steel.” (Plus a few other brands, some I can’t mention yet).
The people in Playground Productions are some of the most talented and fun folks I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. I’m looking forward to sharing some of the projects that have been keeping the team busy over the past couple of years, plus upcoming stuff as well. (I can mention things only as they become public knowledge).
…and that’s because in addition to Jelly Jamming (see Credits) and the holidays, I’ve been writing for a new action-adventure show called Monsuno. Things are busy.
I’m back in New York, home from a week of daily meetings (and rental car driving) in Los Angeles.
Warm regards to the following West Coasters: Marty Isenberg, Greg Johnson, Chris Yost, Chris Prynoski, Randolph Heard, Michael Ryan, Marina Grasic and newly minted west coasters, Lloyd Goldfine and Matt Drdek.
Cheers to all!
Just been hired by a top-secret animation studio, and major top-secret TV network, to write the pilot for a top-secret new TV show based on a best selling, top-secret kid’s book. And that’s all the top secrets I can share, for now.
Attention, wee ones! Starting this fall, a fresh batch of WordWorld episodes will hit the airwaves. Ask your parents to check their local listings.
WordWorld, a PBS Kids series I story edited, has won three Emmy Awards, including “Outstanding Writing in Animation.” It’s a fun one.

One of the cool things about having a blog is you get to post awesome things like this:
Top comic-book/entertainment site, Newsarama.com, named “Turtles Forever,” a film I co-wrote, one of the top-ten direct-to-DVD animated movies of 2009.
