Miracle on 42nd Street, the PBS-aired documentary that I co-wrote, will be available in late February for streaming purchase on Amazon, iTunes and Google Play. Fans of physical media, please note that DVDs will be available in just a matter of days via Amazon. Truly, we live in an age of wonder.
Miracle on 42nd Street, the doc on subsidized housing, artist communities and the origin story of Seinfeld that I co-wrote with Steve Ryfle, will screen April 29 as part of the Newport Beach Film Festival. Tickets, as they say, are now on sale.
In other business:
- Ask me anything about South Korean military might. (For CBS News.)
- Oscar-winner Greer Garson saying “Staaaaar Wars!” is everything. (For Yahoo!)
- The good news: Hey, there’s a picture of me now available for your editorial needs at Getty Images! The bad news: I look like I’m being taken into custody.
What a busy summer it was for Miracle on 42nd Street.
The documentary was completed. The official Website was relaunched. The teaser poster was rolled out.
Miracle, which I co-wrote, is about Manhattan Plaza, the affordable-housing community for artists in New York City. The complex was born of the Big Apple’s mid-1970s financial crisis, and opened during the Bronx Is Burning summer of 1977. So, yes, there’s a lot of cool footage in Miracle — and a lot of cool stories from the likes of Larry David (an early Manhattan Plaza resident) and Samuel L. Jackson (a Manhattan Plaza security guard during the ’77 blackout).
