Kate O'Hare

Los Angeles-based entertainment journalist Kate O’Hare loves to talk about TV, preferably over a nice, steaming cuppa (it could be coffee or tea, and when she says tea, she means made from tiny little tea leaves, not twigs, berries or grass. OK, there can be some mint. And the tea can be green … but that’s it). Born and bred in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State, she now lives and writes about the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, the natural habitat of TV, but occasionally makes field trips to observe TV production in far distant lands (like Vancouver or Encino).
