Tom says I love you.


A nice scene that will never be seen. Even though Zoe never actually hears Tom, it was felt that this crossed a line in their relationship. Personally, it's one of my favourite moments ever. And thanks to the internet, it lives on.

Childhood dreams come true.


I've had some very cool meetings lately, including this one with Marty Krofft. And look, a Sleestack from Land Of The Lost! Aaaaagh!!!

The office was amazing, with my entire childhood on display. Sadly I'm too busy at the moment with other work and Sid & Marty needs material yesterday... but still, how cool is that?! He even gave me a signed Sigmund toy. Swoon!

In LA for a few meetings and some tacos.

New York has the Statue of Liberty, Malibu has this guy. No contest.

Kidscreen fun


I was just in New York for Kidscreen where I ran a mentor table (when did I become old enough to mentor anyone?) and spoke of the various pet peeves of both creatives and execs, which often overlap. Good fun and some wonderful new contacts. Much talk about Lamington, which I wasn't planning to talk about, but did... and looks like he'll be shifting up a notch sooner than later in his quiet sad quest for licensing world domination.

Cute. But no Barry White

We used to have Barry White 'oh yeah' type of music playing over this scene. And so we had to come up with something different, and Eric Reinwart, our composer came up with many different things, and none of them made us laugh as much as the Barry White stuff... until this one.

A belated Lucky Fred Xmas Card, because I only just found it.


I was sifting through some old emails and found this while I was away. Cute. Can't wait for the show to come on the air. Soon, apparantly very soon on Disney XD.

Sad. I've been with Monteiro Rose Agency now for 15 years now and Candy was my first agent. Candy was amazing, inspiring and she taught me calm. She took on me and Alan Gilbey way back when despite us being totally inexperienced in TV, and in the wrong country. She showed us the way and invested in us. A lot. When Candy believed in a client, she believed with all her heart. She raised us from pups. I have wonderful memories and lessons learned (she gave sage, SAGE, advice) and I will always have deep gratitude for her unwavering belief. A very sad loss.

Zoe, er I mean Samantha to star in Les Mis

Our Zoe, from Groove High just got cast to play Eponine in the upcoming movie adaptation of Les Miserables.

We knew when we were filming in Ireland that she got the call to audition, (she played the part in the West End) and we all know she's gorgeous and can belt out a tune... and in fact hardly ever stops singing, and quite frankly she's one of the hardest working gals in showbiz, so... it's no surprise.

So congratulations Zoe, er... I mean Sam. See you on the big screen. And of course on the small screen on Disney Channel this spring. We're all dang proud.
