Discussion & Book Signing
Network television producer, director, writer, and seven-time Emmy award winner Terry Jastrow discusses his new book, The Trial of Prisoner 043 in conversation with his wife, actress Anne Archer. What would happen if George W. Bush were prosecuted for war crimes? On a glorious autumn morning, former US president George W. Bush approached the first tee in a round of golf he would not finish. Unceremoniously abducted off the course by a team of paramilitary commandos, he was transported to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to stand trial for war crimes in connection with the Iraq War. The ICC had spent one year accumulating sufficient evidence to indict George W. Bush as the single person most responsible for the war. Would he be found innocent or guilty, or would something happen to disrupt the pursuit of justice?
Terry Jastrow began his career in the entertainment industry with ABC Sports as the youngest network television producer in history. During his time with ABC, he produced or directed many major sporting events, including a Super Bowl, six Olympic Games, and sixty major golf championships. He won seven Emmy Awards, having been nominated seventeen times. He served as president of Jack Nicklaus Productions and, after studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in New York City, enjoyed a few eventful years as an actor in theater, film, and television. In 2015, he wrote, produced, and directed a feature film, The Squeeze. In 2016, he wrote the stage play The Trial of Jane Fonda, which was produced in London and received a nomination for Best New Play (Off West End). A descendant of Americas second president, John Adams, Jastrow was born in Colorado, raised in Oklahoma and Texas, and has lived his adult life in New York and California. The Trial of Prisoner 043 is his first novel.
