Writing and Producing for TV Today: A Talk with Micah Fitzerman-Blue, Formerly of Tulsa
On our show today, a conversation with Micah Fitzerman-Blue, a writer and producer now living in Los Angeles who grew up in Tulsa and attended Holland Hall School (and later, Harvard University). He's probably best known as a writer and producer for the award-winning Amazon television show, "Transparent," starring Jeffrey Tambor and Gaby Hoffmann -- and his first feature film, "The Motel Life," appeared in 2013 and starred Dakota Fanning, Emile Hirsch, and Kris Kristopherson, winning both Best Screenplay and the Audience Award at the Rome Film Festival. Fitzerman-Blue will appear here in Tulsa this evening (the 21st) at a free-to-the-public TV Writers' Symposium on the TU campus in Tyrrell Hall. This event begins at 8pm and you can find more info about it here. The evening will also feature writers who've worked on such hit shows as "Treme" and "Saving Grace."
