Power Rangers was a personal favourite Saturday morning show from the days of my youth; but the works of Jack Olesker have had a significant impact on practically everyone who had a childhood in the eighties and nineties.
From writing murder mysteries to The Care Bears his portfolio is rather diverse, becoming part of the paradigm shift in children's TV in the final decade of the 20th century. In a classic story of chasing 'The American Dream,' Olesker went on to become a key figure in the TV industry, and has recently launched a Kickstarter project to fund his latest creation: ZTV The Zombie Network.
With a taste for horror, a fascinating career epitomised by the boom in children's TV, and his feet placed firmly on the ground alongside his fanbase. We speak to Jack about his big breakout into the screenwriting business, the career spanning nearly 3 decades, and his plans with ZTV.
The Zombie Apocalypse is all but played out in modern media; but even we were curious to find out about an undead blend of 'The Walking Dead' and '30 Rock,' created by the mind behind popular 90s children's show 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.' TV Sitcom 'ZTV - The Zombie Network' looks to fill this void, pledging to Kickstarter for funding.
