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.

So, yes, it’s true: I’m a tabloid figure and a sellout.

My holiday present to you: a listicle! Specifically, 12 random and arbitrary pop-culture things I’m looking forward to in 2016. Somehow, Rizzoli & Isles is discussed, as is my totally exclusive finding that Robert Redford will be way older in the new Pete’s Dragon than Mickey Rooney was in the old Pete’s Dragon.
And, yes, I know we don’t yet know when The Man in the High Castle will be back with new, season-two episodes, but I can hope it’ll be in 2016.
Oh, and happy new year and all that.
