The second season of “Haven” premieres tonight on the SyFy Network. One of the writers and producers of the show is Jim Dunn and he told us about how his writing career for television in Hollywood began.
“I went up to St. Paul, Minnesota, to go to college at Macalester College and my roommate assigned to me Freshman year was a guy named Sam Ernest. We got out of college and ended up opening restaurants together. We were both English majors and wanted to be writers and he had two restaurants, we had very successful businesses going up in the Twin Cities, but we weren’t writing. So we decided to start trying to write movies and TV shows together. We had a job opportunity to be an Assistant, which is basically a Secretary, out in Hollywood. We talked our wives into signing up and we all moved out to Los Angeles in the winter of 1999.”
“Haven” is on tonight at 9:00 CT/10:00 ET. Jason Priestley moves to Haven as season two begins and a new visitor comes to town that shares Audrey’s name and memories.
