Merry Christmas to me! It’s no secret that I live in the middle of nowhere, and it certainly limits what I’m able to do work wise. But I got a call about this amazing new show @nbc is doing, and I’m so incredibly honored that they invited me to come play with them for a bit. Today I got up after a snow storm and hiked down to the SUV that was stuck in our snowy drive at 3am to come to set here in GA. It was chaos. But the moment I arrived, this group made it such a fun day. I respect the hell out of them and it’s a privilege to joke around and work alongside them. @nbccouncilofdads is the show you’re gonna get cozy with this March and fall in love with. I just know it. Cause this cast and crew is gifted and dynamic and beautiful and KIND. Oh my god, their kindness shows through in the loveliest ways. Sooo, big thanks to all those involved. And mark your calendars! Good stuff coming your way in Spring 2020!!!
