I was happy to see the return of familiar faces like Royal Pains and look forward to meeting new friends like Mr. Robot, which recently slayed at SXSW, and Complications. I interviewed Jason O’Mara about Complications for the June issue of Channel Guide Magazine, and he was an utter dream and his thrilling show is a total adrenaline-rush. It certainly proves the line from Wicked, “No good deed goes unpunished.” And, as you can imagine, I’m beyond the moon with excitement at the news that Playing House has … Continue reading

Bob Fisher on Sirens Season 2

In September, I, along with a few other writers, had the chance to visit the Chicago set of USA Network’s hit comedy series Sirens, which follows the professional and personal lives of three EMTs in the Windy City.

Before watching the filming of a scene, we toured the set, which included a newly built hospital set for the second season (visits to the hospital … Continue reading
