Let the Dark Winds Blow

Joe Leaphorn’s coming back, I am thrilled to say.

The second season of DARK WINDS was a great success.  If you missed it, you can still catch it on AMC+.  Along with the first season, which is still streaming as well.

And last week AMC informed us that we’ve been renewed for a third season.

The new season will once again be based on one of Tony Hillerman’s amazing novels.   If you’ve enjoyed the show, and want more to tide you over to the next season, read the books.  They are fantastic.

Meanwhile, my thanks to AMC, to our showrunner John Wirth, to Robert Redford and Chris Eyre who made this all possible, and to our cast, crew, writers, and directors.

Let’s Make A Deal

I am VERY pleased to report that the end of the writer’s strike is at hand.

The WGA and the AMPTP negotiators have reached agreement on a new deal.

The details have not been released yet, but the news of the accord is out.

The fine print needs to be settled by the lawyers, and the terms need to be ratified by the membership of the WGA, but the overall feeling seems to be very positive.   The Guild has suspended all picketing for the nonce.

Writing cannot resume until all that is sorted out, but it should not be too much longer.

Which means labor peace may be at hand, and those pens that were set down may soon be taken up again.
