Jose Molina of Sleepy Hollow, Firefly, Castle, Haven and Law&Order: SVU and Javier Grillo-Marxuach of Lost, Helix, Boomtown, Medium and The Middleman - over forty years of combined television experience and we are giving it away for free!
In this first episode, we begin at the beginning, telling you how we started our careers in television and giving you straight shooting practical advice as to how you can start your own!
My dude Jose Molina (writer/producer of Sleepy Hollow) and Lost writer/producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (yes I know they have other credits too) have launched a new podcast called childrenoftendu and you KNOW you want their dulcet tones in your earballs.
“But Jose co-wrote one of the MOST problematic episodes of Sleepy Hollow that engaged in lazy stereotyping of First Nation/Native peoples and I don’t fucks with that type of foolishness" you say.
To which Trollando retorts…
All the more reason to support his new career as a podcaster, amirite? Not to mention, I’m sure he’d LOVE all y’all trolling his Tumblr and letting him know what’s up but doing so respectfully because he really is good people.
Since Wikipedia defined tendu as follows:
Tendu means “stretched” or “pulled” in French. It also may refer to:
Tendu, Indre, a commune in France
Tendu, local name of the tree Diospyros melanoxylon (East Indian Ebony)
battement tendu, a dance or ballet movement
Tendu, climbing technique
this is a podcast that’s either about the children of people involved with stretching/pulling, French communes, trees, ballet or climbing techniques.
Just go listen:
PS - All trollishness aside, this is a great podcast that gives you practical tips for how to break into the TV writing game. Definitely worth your time if you’re interested in that type of thing.
