secs & EXECS was co-created and co-written by the veteran writing/producing team of James Berg and Stan Zimmerman (“The Golden Girls”, “Gilmore Girls” and both “Brady Bunch” films, the Lifetime sitcom “Rita Rocks”, and “Roseanne”).
Zimmerman directed all 6 webisodes.
“Stan and James have been part of such iconic tv series and their writing for women is so smart and funny that I had to collaborate with them again.”, Christin Baker, President of tellofilms.
