Tuesday, May 31, 2011

profiles the life and work of J.J .Abrams '88, who attended Sarah Lawrence instead of USC at the urging of his father, who "didn't want him to focus too soon on one trade alone." While studying many subjects at SLC, and prior to graduation, Abrams wrote and sold a screenplay that later became the 1990 comedy Taking Care of Business. His current projects include the feature film Super 8, which opens in theatres in early June, and the new fall TV shows Alcatraz and Person of Interest.
