Charlie Jade Podcast #06: A Conversation with Robert Wertheimer
Yes, this is the final episode of the Charlie Jade Podcast.
Summer, Richard and Kevin have an entertaining, enlightening, and interestingly long chat with Charlie Jade creator Robert Wertheimer about the creation and development of the show over the course of several years, the pros and cons of international co-productions, and creating a TV show off the cuff, and on the fly.
We also talk about the Men in the Grey Suits, their overall plan for the universes that was sidetracked by the efforts of Charlie and 01 Boxer, and how that led into some interesting plans for a Season 2 that would turn everything we saw and learned in Season 1 on its ear.
After that, the conversation runs from production challenges, to the needs and expectations of scifi shows, to unlikely but not impossible returns to the universe of Charlie Jade, and much more.
Also, people interested in a Region 1 DVD release of Charlie Jade should contact Jacques Pettigrew at Cinegroupe in Montreal, either via email, fax or phone. Feel free to tell him that Robert asked you to call!
If the Cinegroupe.com website behaves oddly, try this Cinegroupe.ca link instead. And while you’re sending Jacques a note about the Region 1 DVD, don’t forget to ask him to please include the episodic commentaries that are already done and ready to go!
Also, send FM Le Sieur some love and appreciation for the music that has created such a unique and evocative atmosphere in Charlie Jade.
