Primetime scripted television series for MyNetworkTV and Fox. Having developed successful upfront campaigns for six proposed series, Fox asked me to come on board to write, direct and produce material for the series proper. Desire was the first franchise out of the gate, establishing the six nights a week for 13 weeks first run syndication format.
Desire is a cautionary tale about love and revenge. And great cooking.
I think my favorite part about producing the novella series for Fox was that each franchise had a strange mix of drama and comedy. It was an artifact of the source material, for sure. But it’s so much fun to write about love triangles, sibling rivalries and the mob. These characters are colorful and sometimes settle disputes with cook-offs. What’s not to love?
