Personal Quote:

Writer's block is when you think your ideas aren't good and you get stumped. And I figured out... that you write it the way you would write badly, the way you wouldn't turn it in. And as soon as you start, your writing becomes better. Because you've tackled the subject.

Trivia:

Asserted, that his inspiration for "Bewitched" came from the motion pictures I Married a Witch (1942) and Bell Book and Candle (1958). He only wrote the script for one episode of the series, the pilot. See more »
