Paul Newman, Jack Bauer and Gideon’s War: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning producer Howard Gordon and Paul Newman biographer Marian Edelman Borden will be our featured guests on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Known for writing and producing such critically acclaimed network television shows as 24, The X Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Howard Gordon recently fulfilled a lifelong dream with the publication of his first novel, Gideon’s War, a page-turning political thriller similar to 24 in that it features non-stop action, reversals, cliffhangers and a protagonist who has only 24 hours to prevent a global disaster. We’ll ask Howard how he came to write Gideon’s War, the writers who inspired him early in his career, the latest news about 24 and much, much more when he joins us in our second hour.

Howard Gordon also has appearances on Tuesday, Jan. 11 in Los Angeles; Wednesday, Jan. 12 in Roslyn, NY; Tuesday, Jan. 18 in Charlotte, NC; and Wednesday, Jan. 19 in Wellington, FL. Visit his website, www.howardmgordon.com, for details and more information.

Also joining us this week will be author Marian Edelman Borden, whose latest book, Paul Newman: A Biography, provides readers with a straightforward, chronological look at not only Newman’s long and distinguished motion picture career, but his early work in television, his passion for auto racing, his business acumen, his work with various charities, his political activism, and his 50-year marriage to actress and fellow Oscar winner Joanne Woodward. If you’re a fan of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, we hope you’ll join us when Marian joins us in our first hour.

We’ll also take a look at how the world of television news is portrayed in movies such as Morning Glory and Broadcast News, and the extent to these films might inspire people to consider journalism as a career. Full program as always… we certainly hope you’ll join us.

Happy New Year and Welcome To Orchestra Hall,

Joshua Bell is Orchestra Hall’s guest soloist. For more than two decades, Joshua Bells has enchanged audiences worldwide with his breathtaking virtuosity and tone of rare beauty. He came to national attention at the age of 14. He has earned the rare title of “Classical Music Superstar.”

I invite you to join me Sunday, January 2nd at Noon pacific and eastern time for the first concert of 2011featuring The Four Seasons by Vivaldi with guest soloist Joshua Bell on your station for the classics – KSAV.org.

Happy New Year everyone,
Susan McCray

Remembering Stephen J. Cannell: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Join us for an encore presentation of our tribute to Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Stephen J. Cannell on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

The creator or co-creator of nearly 40 television series, including The Greatest American Hero, Baa Baa Black Sheep, The A Team, Hunter, Wiseguy, 21 Jump Street and The Rockford Files, Stephen J. Cannell overcame the stigma of dyslexia to become not only one of the best producers in American TV history, but one of the most prolific writers the industry has ever known. Joining us as we remember his life and career will be Emmy-winning writer/producer William Link (Columbo, Mannix, Ellery Queen, Murder, She Wrote), a colleague of Cannell’s at Universal throughout the 1970s; television journalist and historian Mark Dawidziak, who interviewed Cannell countless times throughout the 1980s and ’90s; and author Robert J. Thompson, whose books on television include Adventures on Prime Time: The Television Programs of Stephen J. Cannell.

We’ll also play an excerpt from our conversation with Stepfanie Kramer about working with Cannell and Fred Dryer on Hunter, plus clips from Ed Robertson’s interviews with Cannell and Roy Huggins about the origins of The Rockford Files. If you’re a fan of Stephen J. Cannell and his vast body of work, we certainly hope you’ll join us.
