RATHER premieres on NETFLIX April 24!

RATHER, a documentary I wrote about the legendary newsman Dan Rather premieres on Netflix on April 24th. Directed by Frank Marshall. 

Netflix has set “Rather,” the documentary about veteran journalist Dan Rather‘s landmark career in news for an April 24 premiere on the streamer. The feature utilizes the story of Rather’s life on television to also explore the evolution of broadcast journalism, the troubles a free press now faces, along with the slide of American society from hard-fought advances in social justice and democratic freedoms.

Frank Marshall directed “Rather,” which comes from Wavelength and Original Productions, in association with Anchor Entertainment and The Kennedy/Marshall Company. The doc first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last June.

The Walk – Premieres at DOCNYC Nov 9

It was an absolute honor to be a story consultant on this amazing film by director Tamara Kotevska (Honeyland), and a pleasure to work with the team at Grain Media and Participant.

THE WALK is a film about the innocence of childhood and the power of imagination in a time of crisis, and follows the cross continental odyssey of Amal, a 3.5 metre high puppet.

The World Premiere of #TheWalk will be Nov 9 at @docnycfest in New York. Tickets available here.

Proud to share that Let Me Be Me was nominated for an Emmy! I wrote and co-directed this doc about an autistic boy who undergoes a radical treatment program and grows up to be a fashion designer, and it was nominated for a 2023 Outstanding Arts & Culture Emmy! 

 

RATHER Premiere: Tribeca June 9, 2023

 

It was a true honor to write this documentary about legendary newsman Dan Rather, directed by Frank Marshall.

It was also a pleasure to reunite with Wavelength Productions—in particular with the brilliant, talented and beyond dedicated editor Joe Fenstermaker—as well as editor Curtis McConnell (with whom I worked on Fate of a Sport).

The film premieres at Tribeca Film Festival June 9th!

Fate of a Sport – Premieres June 15 @ Tribeca

I wrote a documentary that premieres in June at Tribeca. It’s called Fate of a Sport.

Executive Produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, produced by the amazing Matt Tolmach (Spiderman, Jumanji, Venom, etc) and put together by many other incredibly talented folk.

“I thought documentaries were non-fiction, what does it mean to ‘write a documentary’?” you ask? Well, it sort of depends on the project. But in this case, there was a version of the film and it needed restructuring, and a lot of additional interviews. So as the writer, I wrote an outline that detailed the scenes and overall structure, interviewed a bunch of people, and helped oversee the editing to make the finished film. 

It’s a great story about an incredible athlete:

After enduring eleven years as one of the most dominant and controversial players in a professional lacrosse league that was anything but professional, Paul Rabil decides to take the game into his own hands. Partnering with his brother Mike Rabil, the Rabil brothers attempt to raise the capital, poach the top players, fight off lawsuits, and persevere through a global pandemic to change the trajectory of professional sports by launching the Premier Lacrosse League. To complicate matters, Paul must navigate the politics of playing in the league that he also runs.
