Writer / Digital Producer, HOUSE OF LIES app for Showtime Networks, produced by Seven Publishing Ltd. Digital Team
Wrote content and concepts on 9 segments across all 7 chapters of the official app for the Showtime comedy drama, House of Lies, starring Don Cheadle, Kristin Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson and Dawn Olivieri.
(Including the BS Generator, Glossary, Meet The Team, A Year Of Your Life As A Management Consultant, Interactive Hostile Workplace HR Training Infographic, Expenses Cleanup, Travel, Swimming With Sharks, and Marty's Manifesto).
It's available here as an ipad app:
and will also be available on the Barnes & Noble Nook:
What's great about writing on a TV series app, is that you have to pull together and also balance a combination of three disciplines:
How it hits the eye.
High-end glossy magazine skills
Does it look great and match the design rules of the show?
How it hits the finger (and device).
App building and coding skillsets
Can it be done technically, and does it work?
And finally, where I sit...
How it hits the brain.
TV/Broadcast writing skills
Is it funny, and is it in the right character voice of the show?
We're still in frontiersland for this kind of work, but from where I'm standing, if any chapter of an app (ipad, Nook, or Android) excludes or leans too heavily on one of the three above... it just doesn't work.
