Dear Fellow Coast to Coast Listener,
If you're like me, you long for the good ol' days of TV when a Twilight Zone or Outer Limits episode left your mind blown and your jaw gaping.
Why do we still mourn the loss of those great TV shows? Is it because they expanded our minds and revealed timeless truths? Maybe it's because they gave us a sense of awe and permission to say "What if?" on a regular basis?
Ever wondered who killed them? Sadly, I solved that mystery. See, I worked with Art Bell to create a TV series called ZERO.POINT that explored C2C topics. TV experts said it was visionary and audiences would love it, especially the C2C audience. But guess what happened when it came time to pitch the corporate-controlled gatekeepers-in-suits controlling everything on TV.
They said, "We can't show stories about quantum physics, peak oil, synchronicity and energy wars. 99% of audiences are brain dead and advertisers won't support it anyway!"
After getting knocked down repeatedly, I surrendered to working behind the scenes of Hollywood.
