Disclosure: This is a Disney Studios/ABC Event. I’ve been invited as media to cover it and all opinions are my own.
I’m still processing the fact that I’m heading to LA this weekend for the red carpet event for A Wrinkle in Time!! I honestly, can’t believe it!! I first read the book years and years ago and fell in love with it, still till this day… it’s one of my favorites reads! When I heard that it was being made into a movie, I was over the moon. And then (hold me) I heard who was IN the movie and was thrilled – OPRAH, MINDY and REESE? Are you kidding me? Insanely amazing! So… as you can imagine, when I received the invitation to head to LA for the red carpet event and interview the cast – I LEAPED at the chance! Not to mention, I also get to experience a fun ABC TV events, too!!

We’re going to screen the first two episodes of “Alex, Inc.” I’ve been excited about this show because I’m a BIG Zach Braff fan!! Based on the podcast StartUp, Alex Schuman (Zach Braff, “Scrubs”) is a brilliant radio journalist, husband and father of two who is about to do something crazy – quit his job and start his own company. He quickly discovers it’s going to be a lot harder than he thought.
After we screen the show, we’re going to have an open Q&A and photos with Zach Braff (“Alex Schuman”) and Tiya Sircar (“Ronni Shuman”) and Executive Producer Matt Tarses.
