Northern Michigan: New TV shows have Glen Arbor, Traverse City ties.

Northern Michigan News: Traverse Citians will recognize Jeff Garlin, star of the new ABC show The Goldbergs, as the funny guy who hits Traverse City during the Comedy Fest and the Traverse City Film Festival—and makes us laugh (during, for instance, late night comedy-jam sessions at Horizon Books). Garlin's new show (he's the dad) premiers Tuesday, September 24 at 9:p.m. 

But stay tuned! At 9:30 Trophy Wife makes its debut. And while you may not know any of the actors on the new sitcom, know that if you ordered softserve at Glen Arbor's Pinecone (or eaten at its mother restaurant Good Harbor Grill) you just may have been served by the show's co-creator, Sarah Haskins. Haskins was a Glen Arbor summer kid before heading to L.A. to make her name.

Here's a great interview with her by the Glen Arbor Sun's Jacob Wheeler, published in 2009!
