Ken LaZebnik wrote the screenplay for the Lionsgate film “Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas Cottage,” starring Peter O’Toole and Marcia Gay Harden, out on DVD this month.
His most recent work is “Confessional” debuting on Strike.tv, November 19th. Strike.tv was born out of the writer’s strike in December 2007. Ad revenue from Strike.tv goes to the Actors Fund Entertainment Assistance program.
“Strike.tv began as a charity venture during the WGA strike. A bunch of us had the idea at roughly the same time that producing our own original content, owning it and putting it on-line would be a great way to start what amounts to an alternative on-line network. So we started in. I put together a seminar last January; 400 people showed up and 60 writers said they’d put together shows. It took awhile to get it all set up, but we have about 50 original webseries that we’ll be rolling out.”
