Jigsaw Productions: Water and Power – A California Heist

If current political shenanigans haven’t already invigorated your respect for unglamorous gumshoe reporting, then “Water & Power: A California Heist” should do the trick.   Read the rest of Jeannette Catsoulis’ NY Times review here or read Michael Rechtshaffen’s LA Times review here.

In addition to a short run in theaters,”Water and Power” will also run on the Nat Geo Channel. It will be followed by 3 more water-themed episodes in mini documentary series called “Parched.”

I appear briefly in “Water and Power” and I was a story consultant on the entire Parched series. It was a real pleasure to work with the Jigsaw crew!
