On Thursday, August 29, 2013, I sat down to have a conversation with Pattie Kelly (@Pattie_Kelly) — producer of Safety Smart Science with Bill Nye the Science Guy and Beyond the Page — and Christopher Rich (@acecharmer) — Another World, Murphy Brown, Reba, Boston Legal, Melissa and Joey — to discuss the Indiegogo campaign to fund the the pilot of Swallow Your Bliss.
Pattie and Chris are producing Swallow Your Bliss, a sitcom that can be described as “30 Rock meets Gordon Ramsay in stilettos.” It will star Christopher Rich, Michael Dorn (@akaWorf) — Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, plus the Star Trek movies VI-X) — and Lisa Long — Modern Family, Shameless, Community, Christmas Mail, Yes Man and Mysterious Skin. It may also star Caroline Rich Schwartz — Workaholics, In the Key of Eli — if contributors bring her back from the dead. The actress who will be playing Amanda Bliss is a bit of a fun mystery.
