My Tale of Two Cities, in Our City, Friday and Saturday at Midtown Cinema!

Carl Kurlander, the self depricating, insightful scribe behind the 80′s smash hit and  plucky, teen sit-com Saved by The Bell, might have once made the best mistake of his life. This mistake:  to leave Los Angeles at the height of a successful writing career, move back to Pittsburgh, and take a job teaching screenwriting at the University of Pittsburgh.

With an appearance on Oprah Winfrey-a segment highlighting Kurlander’s unbelievable epiphany- he expressed how happy he was in regard to making the move back to the steel city. Carl went on to mention that he felt as though he had moved back into his own Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. But his return home, and his undying search of a meaningful life away from the competitive often exclusive Hollywood whirlwind, came not without irony, as the iconic Fred Rogers passed away.
