Make It...Or Break It

I know McGrath posted about this the other day, but felt it was worth another mention.

Producer/director/writer Larry Raskin is an old pal....from swinging clubs in the old old days in the Atlantis golf tourney at the Banff TV Festival, to the not so old days, burning the late night oil churning out final season Psi Factor's on next to zero budget and six day shooting schedules...and his latest effort is Make Or Break TV. He gave me a screener episode a couple months ago which went behind the scenes of the short-lived series Blade, and it was pretty swell.

There was some confusion about when exactly Make Or Break TV airs...the following release should clear things up.

The premiere episode of this insightful, encyclopedic look at the process of television production, will air on Monday, September 8th at 9:00 pm ET/PT on TVtropolis.

Hear the back-story of various television series as told by the writers, actors, directors and studio executives that were involved in their development, trajectory and demise.

Each television series featured in MAKE OR BREAK TV has had an impact on the pop culture landscape - Max Headroom, EZ Streets, Blade: The Series, Quark, Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years and Grosse Pointe. MAKE OR BREAK TV features interviews with such award-winning actors as Eric McCormack, Kurtwood Smith and Joe Pantoliano, as well as candid commentary from some of television’s greatest players including Paul Haggis, Chris Carter, Darren Star and David Frankel.

MAKE OR BREAK TV will premiere Mondays at 9:00 pm with encore presentations on Thursdays at 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm and Sundays at 7:30 pm.

So tonight at 9pm (ET) here in Canada...check it out.

When you write "swinging clubs", do you mean golf or, um, something else?

Oh there was a lot of club swinging going on back in the came with the turf, as long as no one got hurt.
