In the "too bad it

In the "too bad it didn't work out" department, we have this article in today's Globe and Mail, which has this little tidbit:

Canada's Daniel Richler would not be able to
produce the Salon TV series (they had loved
his Newsworld series Big Life and wanted him
to create a U.S. equivalent, but immigration
officials had stalled, and now they were
forced to find a new producer).

Would have been a great series, I'd wager - Big Life was one of
my favorite shows when it was still on the air. He asked great
questions in interviews too - Allen Ginsberg was visibly delighted
when Richter asked him what it was like to make love to William S. Burroughs.
