In the first season of TEEN WOLF, the big reveal was to be – after discounting the impotent, burn-scarred and vegetative Peter Hale as a suspect, we see the big bad Alpha werewolf – and HIS FACE IS BURNED TOO! The logic: As a human, he’s comatose by day… but a rampaging monster by full moonlight. This angle was abandoned but not before I did a production illio of Hale’s night-time version. No denying it -- heavy Berni Wrightson influence at work here.

KEEN EDDIE was one of the best shows I worked on. Shot and cut in the Guy Ritchie LOCK,STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS style, our show followed a NYC cop working with Scotland Yard -- a fish-out-of-water premise actually shot on location in London. Mark Valley played the title character -- he was great-- and it was Sienna Miller's first foray into acting (also great.) They were backed up by the inimitable Julian Rhind-Tutt and the super-cool Colin Salmon as Eddie's detective partner and SY superior, respectively.
The series was created by Joel Wyman and the editing was fast-paced, the locations and guest casts rocked and the music was fantastic. But don't just take my word for it -- all 13 episodes are available on disc.
I wrote two of the episodes but like a lot of the shows I work on, I also did some production sketches in the the writer's room. The one above is of Eddie calling on a gangster whose daughter is having her portrait painted. As for the tea kettle, I guess it was influenced by the fact the show took place in London, England. Tea time and all that.
