“It’s not a bad thing to want to feel good,” declared Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President of Programming and Network Publicity for Crown Media Family Networks, during a recent dinner with Jack Myers and me at Michael’s restaurant in Santa Monica. The topic, of course, was television. “I love all kinds of television," she said. "I watch everything. There's a lot of room for dark and edgy programs. But I also know there is a lot of room for what we do. Look at the spectrum of the life experience. There’s this whole range of how people live their lives and how they want to see it reflected in art and entertainment. That’s something we have to pay attention to in a big way.”
