TELEVISION SCRIPT

Seinfeld Series Finale: “It’s Jerry’s Wonderful Life”

Okay, I was a big “Seinfeld” fan, and I found the series finale somewhat disappointing. So what did I do? I wrote my own. I got nothing out of it, except for the satisfaction of writing what I think turned out to be a pretty funny script. Judge for yourself.

ARTICLES

The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture: Media

A very cool reference book on the South, as represented in film, TV, radio, and other mass media.  My articles are on Stephen Colbert, Ken Burns’ documentary series The Civil War, The Civil War in Film, and John Grisham movies, but there is much, much more. If you are interested in the South and its portrayal in the media, I highly recommend it.
