As a kid, Aaron Rahsaan Thomas could be described as the good kid living vicariously through his bad kid friends. Essentially, he took this perspective with him to the page. Thomas, who has worked on shows like Friday Night Lights, Numb3rs, CSI:NY, Southland, The Get Down, and S.W.A.T., says he has a love/hate relationship with human beings, which comes alive in his silver screen characters. Thomas’ series S.W.A.T comes from intellectual property but has a new spin on it. The description reads, “Follows a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. sergeant and his team of highly-trained men and women as they solve crimes in Los Angeles.” The series stars Shemar Moore, Alex Russell, and Lina Esco. In this interview, Thomas discusses auteur filmmaking moving into television, nurturing creative pursuits, lessons from iconic showrunners, a skillset collection from Kobe Bryant, doing your research for entrepreneurial climbs, and his hopes for future proteges.
