GORTIMER Writers Honored with Humanitas Prize and WGA Award

What a week for our show and for our writers. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch as Garrett Frawley, Brian Turner, Gretchen Enders and Aminta Goyel were recognized for their work on Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.

I’ve had some of the worse insomnia I’ve ever had, including one stretch where I simply did not sleep for about 36 hours straight. The truth is that work, especially making-tv-show work, is a great distraction and right now a great distraction is what I need. I don’t want to think about the last few months, I just want to keep marching forward.
