Interview: Co-Producer Monica Wyatt on Music, Editing and More

Such a lovely conversation with My So-Called Life co-producer Monica Wyatt yesterday, even as she was recovering from this $#@ bug that’s been going around. (I am, too, come to that.)

I’m particularly indebted to her for:

  • Clearing up a couple of technical questions I had about how the show's signature look was achieved

  • Her memories of hunting down songs to use in the show with Andrew Leary. (Among other achievements, she was the one who chose Engima’s “Return to Innocence” for the mother-daughter fashion show scene at the end of “The Zit.”)

  • Providing a fresh lead on tracking down someone I’ve been searching for since I first decided to write this book nearly two years ago. (Fingers crossed.)

Since leaving the TV business, Monica’s also become a respected artist – check out her sculptures here. (There's also a great interview with her – and more photographs of her work – here.)
