In the thick of the holiday season as we are, I have been wishing that I could deliver some good news by way of a gift to you all. Specifically, I had hoped we would have some information about what Jeremy might be working on next. But it looks as though that will have to wait a little longer. I’m afraid I don’t know if he is currently working on something that is yet to be publicised, or whether he is taking a break.
As you know, Jeremy’s last major project was Miami Medical, a tv show which aired in USA, and which Jeremy finished filming in February of this year after what was, by all accounts, a gruelling work schedule. Many of us were hoping that Jeffrey Lieber, Miami Medical‘s creator, would be able to organise an on-demand DVD of the show. Jeremy has many fans who are not based in USA, many of whom either hadn’t seen the show at all, or had only managed to watch it online. Jeffrey has been a great friend to this blog, so I know it was not without disappointment that he told me this week:
The on-demand DVD got bogged down in the cost of clearing the music. Apparently, I learn, music is automatically cleared for broadcast, but there is a SECOND cost for DVD/BLU-RAY distribution, which is prohibitive. Still looking into it, but it’s a long shot at this point.
This will come as a blow to many of you, I know. Be assured, however, that there WILL be some good news for Jeremy’s fans at some point (it’s very difficult to type with your fingers crossed, I’m finding), and as soon as I know anything about Jeremy’s next project, I will be sure to post it here.
In the meantime, enjoy the holiday season and be thankful that Jeremy has made a lot of wonderful movies which ARE readily available on DVD! I’ll be finding time to watch Dean Spanley, Emma and Happy Texas, and I’ll be re-listening to his latest audiobook, Dark Matter: how about you?
