Broadcast Date March 20, 2019
As I always say “Our chats will be just that very conversational, not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable!” That was the case entirely when I connected with award-winning filmmaker Adriana Maggs – one of the many perks of my profession is seeing TV shows and movies in advance of their premiere and my call with Ms.Maggs was placed the morning after screening her brand new feature GOALIE. Adriana directs and co-wrote the film based on the life of hockey legend Terry Sawchuk the movie is a remarkable achievement starring one of our favourite NL fellas Mark O’Brien as Sawchuk, with his real-life wife Georgina Reilly as his wife Pat.
Now since our chat, the movie has made its way into theatres in both Toronto and Vancouver but in this call we’ll cover the anticipation and all the inspiration and hard work that went into bringing this fantastic film to life. We’ll also talk about Adriana’s award-winning debut feature film GROWN UP MOVIE STAR and her many TV credits including her current work on LITTLE DOG. Plus we’ll talk about her incredible casts, her preferred way of writing, and spin some of her favourite tunes along the way. We’ll also squeeze in a fun 1st Things First and a long overdue round of INsights IN 10. So without further ado here’s my conversation with the one and only Adriana Maggs!
