I was driving in to work this morning and I started thinking about all the days I dreaded going to work. I was so sick of it… the job, my boss, the people I worked with, the traffic… I would wake up angry every morning. I didn’t want to deal with the crap of the job, but I was forced to go. I had been homeless, I was broke, living paycheck to hopefully the next paycheck. I couldn’t take a day off for fear I would get fired. I was just frustrated. I thought I hated my life ...
This message is to all my folks, especially my die-hard folks, the ones I call the “Board Members” - you know who you are :). By now I’m sure you all know that I have moved my TV shows to OWN and on May 28th and 29th I have a two night premiere. On Tuesday night, my new hot drama THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS starts. I’m telling you, I put it all in this show. I not only want you to watch it but we need you to watch it for several reasons. The biggest reason is this ...
I know a lot of you didn't get a chance to see PEEPLES last week. It's still in theaters. Kerry Washington is doing something a little different. It's a treat watching her do comedy. Craig Robinson from "The Office", that dude is super funny. As well as the legends, Diahann Carroll and Melvin Van Peebles. Two legends round out this cast.
I think it's hysterical and I'm super proud of Tina and the cast. Check it out if you can, OK?
We have some golf carts at the studio. We use them to run around the campus, getting actors from here to there and so on. But the thing that bothers me the most about them is that when you put them into reverse a beeping alarm goes off. And it doesn’t stop until you go forward. It is so annoying to be in the middle of a shot, when I need it very quiet, to hear that beeping noise. I wanted the facilities guys to disconnect the reverse alarm but I was told that they couldn’t because it ...
Hope you had a great Mother's Day.
Super, super thanks to all of you who went to see Peeples this weekend. I'm so proud of Tina Gordon Chism writing and directing her first film. Thank you for supporting her.
Hello Peeples :-)
I sure hope you are planning on going out and supporting Peeples. The movie is in theaters right now.
This is a movie that was written by a first time director, Tina Gordon Chism. I'm very proud of her. She is the first writer/director that I'm presenting. I'm hoping to find many more and help usher them into their dreams. Kerry Washington, Craig Robinson and David Alan Grier all star in this really fun and funny movie. Hope you enjoy it.
And happy Mother's Day.
