Do any of you watch The Fosters on ABC Family? If you do, make sure you watch closely to Monday night’s episode, you might see some photos you’ll recognize. Not only was it directed by Norman Buckley (whom I love both as a director and a person) but they needed some still photos to use in the episode and chose mine! I’ve never had my photos appear on TV before so I am very excited about this. 🙂
If you’re not familiar with The Fosters here is a blurb from the website:
The Fosters is a compelling, one-hour drama about a multi-ethnic family mix of foster and biological kids being raised by two moms. Stef Foster, a dedicated police officer, and her partner Lena Adams, a school Vice Principal, have built a close-knit, loving family with Stef’s biological son from a previous marriage, Brandon, and their adopted twins, Mariana and Jesus. Their lives are disrupted in unexpected ways when Lena meets Callie, a hardened teen with an abusive past who has spent her life in and out of foster homes. Lena and Stef warily welcome Callie into their home thinking it’s just for a few weeks, until a more permanent placement can be found.
There are many reasons why The Fosters is awesome. Here are a few you might not be aware of:
- Many people working on The Fosters are friends and former co-workers of mine.
- Teri Polo’s character is Stef with an F, and as we all know people who spell Stefanie with an F instead of a PH are awesome. (Full disclosure, this is how my mom spelled her name.)
- The series was co-created by Peter Paige. I have been a fan of Peter as an actor for a long time. A number of years ago I saw a flim called Say Uncle which Peter wrote, directed, produced, and starred in. It’s a fabulous movie and I encourage you all to see it.
- I’ve loved Teri Polo since I’m With Her, and in my head she’s the First Lady of the United States. (West Wing reference.)
I can’t think of any other silly reasons to list here, but in all seriousness I’ve heard it is a really good show addressing some serious issues in both an honest and entertaining way. I haven’t seen it myself since I don’t have cable and there doesn’t seem to be any way to stream it on Roku, but a friend is letting me invite myself over to her place on Monday night to watch.
Too many words for you? In summary: My pictures are going to be on TV, yay!!!!!
