Tom Romita

Writer. Director. Frustrated Human.

Tom has been successfully (not) writing “unscripted” television shows for almost twenty years.  From the romantic comedy of “Blind Date” and “Matched in Manhattan,” to the family drama of “Wife Swap” and “Shalom in the Home,” to the workplace shenanigans of “Counting Cars” and “New York Ink,” Tom has crafted stories to the delight of millions of viewers over the years.  He’s reached a level of success that has allowed him to live in the city he loves, New York, and secure a wife and daughter so beautiful, people think he’s adopted.  But now, he’s doing it the right way. He’s writing stuff down. Right here. Please enjoy his website, and feel free to share, Tweet or contact Tom directly to say hi, exchange ideas, or introduce him to really rich people who might want to produce his movies.

OLYMPIC ATHLETES' HOMELANDS

What the hell is the deal with athlete’s homelands in the Olympics? I watched a cross country skiing event and a guy from Dallas came in last, representing Thailand, a Russian guy took second for Austria and a German guy won the gold for Spain?! I thought you were supposed to represent the country you live IN.  If you have the choice to represent the country you are from, or the one where you presently live, doesn’t that foul up the spirit of the international competition? I mean why don’t I go spend a week in Botswana and be a ski jumper? I’m sure I could make the team. What’s next- if you think a country is “really neat” you’re qualified to represent them?

“Now on the downhill, Fritz Ramstein, who once sat next to a woman from Malaysia on a bus, now representing that land in these Olympic games.”
