This is not a normal week for me. In fact, it’s a positively weird one. Three and a half years of work are culminating in a one-week TX of my sitcom Flowers and the premiere of the feature film The Darkest Universe, a second venture with my friend Tom Kingsley.
Michael Jackson's stellar career encapsulates much of the creative history of TV during the past 30 years. He was an innovative independent producer back in the 1980s, reinvented BBC Two in the 1990s, and went on to run Channel 4. There, he launched Queer as Folk, Ali G and Big Brother, before crossing the Atlantic to work for the legendary mogul Barry Diller.
Today, still based in New York, his career has swung full circle. Jackson is once again working as a producer.
