A Weekend Update

Hello, all. Just a quick post to say hooray for the actors’ strike coming to a successful resolution. Good job, SAG-AFTRA! I am delighted that our actors for Percy Jackson will now be able to talk about the show, attend publicity events, and of course, get back to work when/if we get going for a second season. No further news on that front, but fingers remain crossed, as always. I can’t wait to catch up with these fine heroes, who recently graced the cover of Variety.

The first two episodes of Percy Jackson and the Olympians are scheduled to premiere on Disney+ on Dec. 20. I hope you’ll enjoy! All the feedback from those who have seen early clips has been incredibly positive. I have gotten so many comments that basically say, “Finally, a faithful adaptation!” I agree. I think you’ll be pleased.

While on the subject of Percy Jackson, we just received this strange communication from Mount Olympus. Do you think the numbers on the clock mean something? Hmm. Messages from the gods are always mysterious. I guess we will have to wait and see . . .
