POP CULTURE LUNCH #2: THE RISE OF J.J. ABRAMS
FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 12 PM – 1 PM
TORY HILL CAFE (IN THE LAW SCHOOL)

In the second of three pop culture lunches this semester, we’ll be discussing the meteoric rise of J.J. Abrams. Abrams (in addition to creating beloved television series like Felicity, Alias, Lost, Person of Interest, and Fringe) has now put in charge of both the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises — a pop culture singularity that would have been unthinkable even a few years ago. (He’s also recently signed deals attaching him to Mission Impossible and the film versions of Half-Life and Portal. He’s taking over.)

Fans and detractors of all Bad Robot Productions welcome!
As always, this will be a conversation, not a lecture!

Please email me if you think you’ll be coming, just so I can have a rough head-count.
