The Breakups on GOSSIP GIRL

March 8, 2010

The breakups have a song on tonight’s episode of GOSSIP GIRL (9/8c, CW).  I watch this show. Often with my friend Caged Heat. Yes, that’s a nickname not a metaphor. The band tells me that “Tissue Sample” will be used.  No word yet on which inevitably sordid scene will backdrop their tune.

I’ve licensed the breakups’ music for 90% of my projects – most recently for APPOINTMENT IN VANCOUVER. Glad GG finally got on the bandwagon.


Laura Breckenridge on GG TONIGHT

March 2, 2009

I’ve been known to tune in to Gossip Girl… and DVR it… and to fervently plan social events inpsired by the broadcast of new episodes.  I admit it.  

I’m a fan.  

Despite all of its shortcomings, I eat up its fashion delights, easy-on-the-eyes actors and every word that comes out of Blair’s mouth.  

But I’m also a fan of Laura Breckenridge.  

Laura and I on set of "Tuesday in Copacabana."Laura and I collaborated in 2007 when she starred in Tuesday in Copacabana, a short I directed and wrote.  She had previously starred on the WB’s Related.   Laura was a dream to work with, and I can’t wait to have the chance again.  

In the meantime, it’s a blast to watch her as guest star as Rachel Carr, a young, idealistic English teacher who goes to war with Blair and to bed with Dan.  Leave it to GG to make afterschool activities sexy again.

Catch Laura in action tonight at 8PM (pst) when the CW replays her first day at school or watch her online in “The Age of Dissonance,” “Carnal Knowledge” and “You’ve Got Yale.”
