My producing partner Jaime Escallon Buraglia and I had a fantastic week working on our half-hour episodic ensemble TV comedy show, Parental Advisory, with the National Screen Institute Totally Television team. We had the chance to work with a great story editor in Josh Gal and to meet and interact with many people in the Canadian TV industry – from show runners to broadcast executives.
The show is based in the world of a dysfunctional PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and is in the same world as our bravoFACT funded short, Parental Advisory: Disciplinary Measures. You can check out our blog posts from the program here.
We are energized and inspired to work on the project and apply for Phase Two.
Wish us luck.
Pop Culture is my humourous blog about being a Modern Dad. This post is about Power Pints, Comics and One-Armed Push Ups.
My producing/directing partner, Jaime Escallon-Buraglia, and I have had our comedy series, Parental Advisory, accepted into the 2014 National Screen Institute – Totally Television program. We start in the Fall and are very excited.

I love the Johnny Cash song, “A Boy Named Sue”. You can sing it; it tells a story; and it’s funny as @#$%. It’s about a boy who was abandoned by his father, leaving him with nothing but the name “Sue”. This made for a hard life for young Sue, who had to learn to look after himself on account of his name. Sue swears that when he finds his father, he’ll kill him. Hilarious, right?

I regularly get irritated at the junk masquerading as science in the media. I guess I could say just that I regularly get irritated. Or testy (this word choice will pay off later, you’ll see).”Burning Man”? It could be my nickname. I regularly blow my stack, let off steam, whatever you want to call it….
