Budd Moss and Kat Kramer: Next on TVC
If you’re familiar with Child of the ’70s—the popular web series that pays homage to classic sitcoms of the 1970s—you know Kat Kramer as Frances Rye, the soap opera star who is a much better diva than she is an actress. Kat also plays two other characters on Child of the ’70s, both of which she will incorporate into her other venues. We’ll ask Kat about that, plus we’ll talk about some of her comedic influences, when she joins us in our first hour.
Kat Kramer is also the daughter of actress Karen Kramer and legendary film producer/director Stanley Kramer, while 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, the iconic film directed by Stanley Kramer that is still timely today. For more information on upcoming events that will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, visit StanleyKramer100.com. Season Five of Child of the ’70s will premiere later this year, while episodes from the first four seasons are available at OutTV.com, FunnyorDie.com, GayDirect.com, TheOfficialChildofthe70s.com and YouTube.
Our second hour will include a return appearance by Budd Burton Moss, the legendary Hollywood agent and talent manager whose career spans the Golden Age of Hollywood and Golden Age of Television right on through the digital age. One of the great raconteurs in the entertainment industry, Budd shares many of his stories in a two-volume memoir, All I Got Was 10 Percent: What It’s Like to Be a (Famous) Hollywood Agent (Vol. I) and Hollywood: Sometimes the Reality is Better Than the Dream (Vol. II). All Got Was 10 Percent is a sprawling narrative that covers Budd’s early career in Hollywood (including his efforts as an actor and bullfighter, his lifelong friendship with Sidney Poitier, the circumstances that led him to become an agent under the legendary Martin Baum, and the triangle between he, Carolyn Jones and Aaron Spelling), while Hollywood: Sometimes the Reality is Better Than the Dream chronicles Budd’s later career, including his efforts on behalf of Rita Hayworth, Tom Bosley, John James, Hunter Tylo and former MPAA president Jack Valenti, and the role he played in casting some of the most iconic shows in TV history.
For our listeners in Southern California, that Budd Moss will be appearing at the Just Fabulous bookstore in Palm Springs on Saturday, April 8. You can also meet Budd at Los Angeles City College on Wednesday, April 12.
