Heroes With a Thousand Faces

Nice work by NBC on their new show. What do you do when you’re getting smoked by the other networks? Dust off your Joseph Campbell book and do what George Lucas and J.K. Rowling did. It’s not easy to write a successful new hero story, especially for TV. Interesting that this show is an incarnation of a good story formula, and NBC’s other new hit, “Studio 60”, shows just how hard it can be to bring a good story to life.
