March 2013 – Kate Griendling’s Oswald project scores a commission with the Military Channel
Congratulations to Kate Griendling on landing a commission with the Military Channel for her special about the Kennedy/Oswald assassinations.  Kate consulted with Carrie when she was looking for help shaping her story and making it more attractive to networks.

Kate shares, “I had almost given up on my documentary– a two-year work in progress– when I met Carrie Regan. Carrie believed in my story and offered tangible help—not just advice. She transformed my treatment by giving the characters color and the plot direction. Her writing is dynamic. She brings to life the stakes, the twists, and the emotion of the story. Carrie took time to coach me through the process and connected me with her contacts. For the first time, I was going into meetings armed with a clear idea of what I had to offer networks.

I could not have done this without Carrie’s help. Carrie’s experience in development, casting, and production give her a well-rounded, expert perspective on what networks look for in a show. She can take the program from concept to air. Her advice and attitude are invaluable. I’m not sure I can fully express the magnitude of Carrie’s impact, other than to point out that two months after Carrie championed my cause, Discovery Studios decided to pitch the documentary to the Military Channel and soon followed the commission.”


Congratulations again Kate! It was a pleasure working with you, and I’m honored that you decided to shared such a personally meaningful project with me.
