One Punk Under God is getting a lot of good press, but some reviewers seem confused as to how tv shows get made. The series follows Jay Bakker, son of Jim and Tammy Faye, as he gets his own ministry going.
Paul Brownfield in the LA Times goes on and on and on about the EPs, Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, and yes, they do deserve all the glory for having the brains to see the drama in the Bakker family and bringing this series to air. But guess what–those two don’t actually shoot every frame themselves, and they’re the first to give credit where it’s due.
In this case, it’s supervising producer/director, Jeremy Simmons, who did the hard miles with the camera crew. He and his crew shot for over a year and then shaped the hours and hours to tape into the series.
FBLA wishes the LA Times would list the major credits for shows like this.
