From Dennis: For this special episode, I'm skipping my usual interview format and presenting and audio performance of my recently completed pilot script of "Misadventures in the 213," based on my novel of the same name. The script recently landed me a spot in the WGA West's Writers Access Program, which showcases writers from diverse backgrounds--I ticked the gay box--and touts their work to showrunners, producers, executives, agents and managers in an attempt to make TV writing rooms for diverse.
I'm so excited and proud to be this program. 171 scripts were submitted. 11 writers made the final cut and of those, only two were comedy writers...and I'm one of them!
Thanks to my wonderful and generous actor friends who lend their time and talent to the reading: Alex Wyse (Craig), Britt Logan (Dandy), Felix Pire (Miles), Jen Caldwell (Claudia), Danny Casillas (Ulysses), Maile Flanagan (Rhonda) and Matt Zarley (Nicky). Extra special thanks to Matt Zarley his recording and editing services.
Hope you enjoy.
