Biography

Brooklynite Lewis Colick moved to the West Coast in 1974 to pursue graduate study in theater arts at UCLA. After obtaining his MFA, he moved into writing for TV, penning some episodic scripts and turning out several unproduced feature screenplays. One of these, "Radiant City", was cited by AMERICAN FILM (March 1991) as one of the best unproduced scripts. While Miramax at one time held an option to produce it as a feature, its period setting and intimate story seemingly made it more palatable for the small screen. ABC produced it in 1996 with Kirstie Alley in the leading role of a Brooklyn woman who desires a better life for her family.
