Anyway, I'm really excited about working with Steven Michael Quezada and the Rio Grande Media Group to launch New Mexico's first home-grown dramatic TV series, "Duke City." I've worked with Steven and my writing partner, Michael Gallagher, to draft the pilot episode. The pilot drew the attention of investors, not only to finance the pilot, but potentially an entire season. We hope to have a deal done soon. Haven't been this excited about a project since I helped launch the Duke City Shootout.
At this point, looks like we have letters of interest from Wes Studi and Dean Norris, Steven's partner on the hit show "Breaking Bad." Otherwise, our intention is to use as many New Mexico crew members, actors and creatives as possible, including writers.

On other fronts, my latest documentary for the City of Albuquerque's Public Art Program, "Rain to River: The Hahn Arroyo Project," is just about finished. Thanks to Bazz McClain and Blaise Koller for helping get this piece finished. It's been more than a year in the making.
I'm hoping this piece will be well-received by all concerned, unlike the my last public art video, "Flight Path," which pissed off a certain westside City Councilor and got me in a bit of hot water.
