    The two favorite moments on Tomorrow Will Be Televised this week: doing the program live on-location for the first time on BlogTalk Radio, for an interview with Spartacus executive producer/head writer Steven S. DeKnight, and a segment with Emily Gerson Saines, executive producer of Temple Grandis, HBO’s first original movie of 2010. We did the interview with DeKnight from the NY offices of Starz, the pay cable network running Spartacus, and anticipate doing more live on-location episodes in the near future. Temple Grandis deals with autism through the true story of a woman (played by Claire Danes) who lives powerfully with this condition as cattle industry innovator, best-selling author and advocate for autism research and outreach services. The film, which premieres on HBO Feb. 6, was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s latest issue (with a rave review) and well-received at the recent Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles. You can hear both episodes at
