I love working in television, and I've been thrilled to be a part of so many wonderful shows. I worked with Lady Gaga on 'Gossip Girl,' and the brilliant Felicity Huffman on 'Desperate Housewives,' but I think my favorite TV job so far was the pilot I shot for the CW Network this year called 'Joey Dakota.'
Erich Bergen

Human felicity is produced not as much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen as by little advantages that occur every day.
Benjamin Franklin
