Agnes Moorehead and Detroit 187: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Charles Transberg, Tony Trupiano and Robert Thompson will be our guests on our next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Most Baby Boomers think of Agnes Moorehead as Endora, the powerful witch who loved to fools of us mere mortals (and particularly her son-in-law, Darrin Stephens) every week on the long-running ABC comedy series Bewitched. But though Bewitched made Agnes Moorehead a star, it was just one chapter in her long, distinguished and very diverse career, which saw her leave her mark in film, television, theater and radio, including her many collaborations with such legends as Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten and Charles Laughton. That is the key point behind I Love The Illusion, an excellent biography of Agnes Moorehead by film and television historian Charles Tranberg. We’ll talk about Agnes Moorehead when Charles Tranberg joins us in our second hour.

In our first hour, media consultant and radio talk show host Tony Trupiano will join us as we discuss Detroit 187, the critically acclaimed ABC police drama that is one of many film and TV productions currently being filmed on location in Detroit, Michigan. We’ll talk about what production of Detroit 187 has meant to the community of Detroit, as well as the tax credit program that was designed as an incentive to bring film companies to Michigan, but which has become the subject of political debate. Plus: pop culture critic Robert Thompson on Charlie Sheen’s latest meltdown and what that bodes for the future of Two and a Half Men.

Join Us This Week for The Best of TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

The next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, featuring encore presentations of our conversations with Days of Our Lives executive producer Ken Corday and Grammy and Emmy Award-winning composer Charles Fox, airs Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Executive producer of Days of Our Lives since 1986, Ken Corday is also the author of The Days of Our Lives: The True Story of One Family’s Dream and The Untold History of Days of Our Lives, a very moving book that tells the story of how Ken’s parents, Ted and Betty Corday, not only created the series in 1965, but overcame many obstacles behind the scenes over the past 45 years, from personal tragedies to the ever-looming threat of cancellation. Our conversation with Ken from November 2010 will be replayed in our first hour.

Our second hour will feature a rebroadcast of our November 2010 interview with Charles Fox, one of the most accomplished composers of the late 20th century. Charles not only wrote such classic songs as “I Got a Name,” “Ready to Take a Chance Again” and “Killing Me Softly with His Song,” but has also scored more than 100 motion pictures and television series, including the theme songs for such iconic TV shows as Love, American Style, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Wonder Woman and The Love Boat. Charles’ book, Killing Me Softly: My Life in Music, is not only filled with stories of his collaborations with Garry Marshall, Colin Huggins, Thomas L. Miller and Edward K. Milkis, Jerry Goldsmith, Jim Croce, Barry Manilow, Lena Horne, Fred Astaire and other music and TV legends, but is a loving tribute to the teacher who mentored him, French composer and conductor Nadia Boulanger.
