As a former CTV Fellow (2006), I always try to look out for new CTV Fellows and report on them when I can. So it was my pleasure to interview Harmony Wagner, a 2011 CTV Fellow, and Creative Producer at Periscope Pictures @ Banff World Media Festival 2011 to talk about her preschool series BunnyBop.

    Dear Cheryl and Harmony Wagner:
    Congratulations on your production company. I wish you both all the continued success.
    My name is John Dallas. I live in upstate New York about 3 hours north of New York City near Albany, New York, the capital of New York State.
    I am a retired accountant. I now write screenplays and truly love it.
    I am writing to you to tell you of a fabulous screenplay that I have written based on a true story. A story that happened to me and to my wife. The title of the screenplay is “HOW I MET AND MARRIED MY WIFE IN EIGHT DAYS”! The title says it all but let me give you a brief
    Synopsis of our unusual and different love story.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for leaving me a very long comment with your phone numbers and contact info.

    Now I think Cheryl and Harmony Wagner’s production company deals only with children series. But I might be wrong. I suggest, you look up their contact email/info and try contacting them directly. While I don’t know if they will reply, but it certainly beats leaving a long comment here as I don’t think they come here to check the comments often or at all.

    Best of luck,
