The System

Fox Buys Crime Procedural ‘The System’ From Jason Winer & Playwright Jon Caren

Jason Winer

Fox is developing The System, a character driven crime procedural executive produced by Jason Winer. It is written by award-winning image002(4)playwright Jon Caren (The Recommendations) in his first TV effort. The System, from 20th Century Fox TV where Winer is under an overall deal, is about six 20-somethings with very different points of view on the criminal justice system. While they struggle to figure out their own messy lives, their high stakes jobs force them to make decisions with life or death consequences’. Caren will co-executive produce;  Winer executive produces along with Renate Radford through Winer’s Small Dog Picture Company. ‘

Winer reached out to Caren about collaborating together after seeing his play The Recommendation, which was based on  Caren’s experience interviewing L.A prosecutors, defense attorneys, and social workers within the L.A prison system. The play just won two LA Ovation Awards, which honor excellence in Los Angeles Theater, over the weekend —  for Outstanding Play and Lead Actor in a Play, Malcolm Barrett.

Caren is repped by ICM Partners and Jeff Silver/Grandview. Winer is with ICM Partners, Mosaic, and Todd Rubenstein.

With his kids all grown up and his wife volunteering at a hospital in Africa, Peter decides to take up dancing at electronic musical festivals as a way to keep occupied. What many think is a breakdown is a breakthrough according to Peter, who is determined to share the life-altering experience with his co-worker Raman Gupta. But when Peter tries to help Raman find a life partner, their experience in a motel room on the way to The Electric Daybreak Festival in South Lake Tahoe changes both their lives forever. A play about love, healing and an unlikely friendship.

The Magic Dictionary

My short play THE MAGIC DICTIONARY will be playing at The Southwark Playhouse in London as part of The Equillibrium’s evening, “Bite of The Big Apple”.  The play is about an awkward new years eve party and the word game that unlocks the key to everyone’s future, or at least — the evening. Image

 

ABOUT THE EVENING: 

 

“We are very excited to announce our first production – a unique and innovative trans-Atlantic event – coming this spring.

 

 

In partnership with New York based company New Light Theater Project and Southwark Playhouse, we are creating immersive events on both sides of the Atlantic: an evening of Americana in London, and an evening of Britannica in New York. Let’s start a conversation about our place in the world.
We are delighted to present 5 premieres in London and 5 premieres in New York, showcasing the best new writing from one cultural capital to audiences in the other. This isn’t sit down and stare theatre – we want to show our audience a good time, make them feel involved and have a really great night out.
A night of Music, Food, Drink, New Writing, Short Films, Americana… all in glorious technicolour. We encourage you to dress appropriately, be inspired by all things American. Uncle Sam has an award for the best dressed.
Let’s get together.”
