Tomorrow evening, the Milwaukee Film Festival will host an evening with Paul Attanasio. In this city, Attanasio may be best known for being the brother of Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, but his broader fame is as a screenwriter and producer.

Attanasio wrote more than 100 episodes of the acclaimed TV show, Homicide: Life on the Street, as well as the movies Donnie Brasco and Quiz Show. More recently, he was executive producer on the Fox series, House.

Lake Effect’s Dan Harmon reached Attanasio by phone from California, and Attanasio weighed in the current state of the film industry.
