Recently, I was a guest on the Sequential Crush podcast, hosted by author and comics historian Jacque Nodell. We talked about my writing career, my creative influences, and more. I had a fantastic time talking to Jacque, and I hope you enjoy listening to the episode!
Here’s Jacque’s description of the episode, from the Sequential Crush site:
“Join me for the first Sequential Crush podcast interview with writer Arie Kaplan. Arie has written for it all — TV, comics, magazines, and books, and he doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Arie shares how he broke into pop culture writing, how he made a move from intern to professional, and he divulges his inspirations, faves, and dream projects.”
Last year, I wrote an episode of the Netflix animated preschool series Charlie’s Colorforms City called “Charlie and Little Bo Peep.” The episode is one of the “Classic Tales with a Twist” eps, which launched TODAY!
Here’s the official synopsis of “Charlie and Little Bo Peep”:
“Animal detective Charlie is on the case! He disguises himself and goes undercover to help Little Bo Peep solve the mystery of her missing sheep.”
As you may be able to tell from that logline, this episode combines two of my writerly obsessions, fairy tales and detective stories. I had a great time penning the script for this episode, and I think the finished product looks spectacular. (But then again, I’m a bit biased.)
