For TV, Adam wrote the original pilot A MODERN GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE for producer Adam F. Goldberg, a fire-marshal procedural ARSON for Queens & Kings Productions, and another pilot about the rise of an 80s Hollywood hair band titled HEADBANGER’S BALL. Adam was the winner of the Austin Film Festival’s TV-writing category and a finalist for both the ABC Talent Development TV Writer’s program and NBC’s Writer’s on the Verge program.
