For the third week in a row, we discuss another of our Top 10 films of 2020, one that has seemingly (and unfortunately) flown under the radar of many film fans, but that is a unique black coming-of-age story that everyone should see.
For this special minisode, we are joined by Scott Conroy, the writer and creator of the new scripted podcast, BLACKOUT, which is a story centered around the town of Berlin, New Hampshire in the midst of a citywide blackout and the fallout that comes from it. It’s narrated by and stars Oscar award winner Rami Malek as Simon Itani, the local DJ. It’s got the flavor of shows like LOST and THE WALKING DEAD, so if you are a fan of those, you’ll want to check it out. It’s 8 total episodes, 7 of which have released as of this conversation, and available via Apple Podcast. We interview Scott about how he got into script writing, where his idea came from, how Rami Malek got involved, and more. You can listen to BLACKOUT on Apple Podcasts now (see link below).
