Writer Statement

This is my first attempt at a pilot (I am a journalist and a novelist) and the pilot is based on personal experiences of observing and interacting with political appointee ambassadors. I'd love to be able to create a show on the subject especially given our current President and the ambassadors he is going to appoint.
