K-Mac's Screenwriting Adventures
My first contact with George Romero's Laurel T.V. group came when they purchased television rights to my story "Slippage". I was later hired to write the teleplay for my story "Lifebomb," and eventually wrote two other teleplays for the Darkside series, one original and the other an adaptation. (However, the "Michael McDowell" who wrote for the show and went on to write horror films such as Beetlejuice is another person entirely.)
My novel contracts have keep me too busy in recent years to put much time into further screenwriting ventures, but I remain an active member of the Writers Guild of America, East, I keep up with all the better television SF series, and I intend to return to the script format when opportunity permits.
Tales from the Darkside is broadcast Saturday nights at 11 pm Eastern on Chicago superstation WGN (available on most cable systems).
