Welcome back to Humor Nation. In 2009, the world of fantasy television changed with the launch of the Vampire Diaries which launched a wonderful universe comprising of Originals and Legacies. When it comes to the success of the Vampire Diaries, a major credit should also go to Julie Plec. She co-created the show with Kevin Williamson. Plec deserves more appraisal because she not only kept on pushing TVD to a new stratosphere after Kevin left but also created Originals which became a huge hit on the CW Network.

5. THE SCREAM CONNECTION
Making SCREAM was one of the highlights of my life. It was the very first movie I worked on and it’s where @kevwilliamson and I fell in love. And years later, @brettwmatthews was hired to be the show-runner of Scream Season 3. We were both excited to give Ghostface a shout-out.
