Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of DC Comics characters such as Black Lightning, Bouncing Boy, Red Tornado, and the Wonder Twins patiently waiting their turn to be selected by The CW so they can be considered cool, too? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
I don?t know what it is with guys who write for modern TV dramas but they can imagine government conspiracies and intrigue where I just see incompetence, waste and featherbedding.
Take Marc Guggenheim, for example.
By day, he is on the writing staff of the most excellent superhero drama, ?Arrow,? on The CW. It takes place in a world of corporate intrigue, government corruption and, oh, yeah, this guy with superhuman physical attributes and an astounding talent with a bow and arrow.

By night ? and weekends, I suspect ? Guggenheim is now a writer of fiction, having just published his first novel, Overwatch, about a super-secret, out-of-control spy agency operating within the CIA without the CIA even knowing of its existence.
Its unlikely star? A young attorney, Alex Garnett, desperately trying to get out from under his father?s shadow. Which is a little tough when your old man is also a lawyer, but one who has served two presidents as chief of staff and solicitor general.
Why a lawyer? Possibly because that?s what the Arrow writer was before giving up Boston legal for Hollywood & Vine.
I?ve interviewed a series of novelists with deep roots in TV and film of late. And all I can say is ? keep ?em coming. These guys know how to write!
