The Snob To Talk Mental Illness on MSNBC's "Melissa Harris-Perry" Sunday

Melissa Harris-PerryFirst week at BET's Don't Sleep (hosted by my Arkansas play cousin T. J. Holmes) is down and the second is almost through. I've been a wee bit busy, naturally. But even in all that, I've still got time for the occasional media pit stop! This time it's on MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry's eponymously named show. I'll be on this Sunday, Oct. 14 at 11:30 a.m. EST, talking about mental health issues. As long-time readers know, I've been open about my diagnosis with Bipolar Disorder since 2009. I've written about it here on this blog, spoken about it on Michel Martin's NPR show, and wrote stories about my experiences for Essence Magazine earlier this year in January and BP Magazine in 2011.

Hilarious side note: My friend Dr. Jason Johnson is ALSO going to be on MPH's show this Sunday! It's a black political nerd convention going on! All we need now is TheRoot.com's Keli Goff and The Onion's Baratunde Thurston and there will be enough of us there to form Black Nerd Voltron or something.

BET's "Don't Sleep," hosted by T. J. Holmes (Co-Written By Moi) Premiere's Tonight!

Just like the chocolate and peanut butter for which I nicknamed him, two people with nothing in common but journalism degrees and the great state of Arkansas, have finally come together to make a "delicious" TV show. Will you watch?

Check it out on BET, 11 p.m. EST/ 10 p.m. Central time.

The Snob Is Moving to NYC to Work on TJ Holmes' New Show for BET

Well, it's official! I was hired to do some writing n' such for T.J. Holmes' new show for BET, better known as "Don't Sleep!"

For those of you playing at home, I worked on the pilot last winter and many, many moons ago used to pretend to stalk T.J. for poops n' grins on the Internet. Life is incredibly funny in how a guy I started writing about during this blog's beginnings in 2008 is the same guy I wound up working for in my first scripted TV writing gig. Be sure to check out the show, premiering in October on BET! Along with script writing and blogger duties you just might catch me on as the occasional panelist. I'm already (silently) featured in the show's promos, but I hate those promos because I'm wearing the sweater of doom and I'm about 25 lbs heavier than I am now.
