Dee Wallace and Michael Rosenbaum: Next on TVC

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Actress, author and teacher Dee Wallace and Impastor star Michael Rosenbaum will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Known around the world as the mom in E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, not to mention the legendary “scream queen” of such classic horror movies as Cujo, The Howling, The Frighteners, and Critters, Dee Wallace is also an accomplished and respected teacher, having taught in the public school system, as well as her own dance and acting studios. Dee has expanded her love of teaching, and the principles she has found empowering for all people, into daily sessions, a weekly radio show, five books (including a new children’s book), and an adorable stuffed bear, called Buppa LaPaloo, that serves as an important teaching tool for children ages four to seven. We’ll talk about Buppa, plus we’ll ask Dee about some of her many film and TV roles, when she joins us in our second hour.

Dee Wallace currently stars in Just Add Magic on Amazon Prime. In addition, she will be appearing at the Mystic Journey Bookstore, 1624 Abbot Kinney Blvd., in Venice, CA on Saturday, Nov. 12 beginning at 7pm. Dee will be appearing that night along with Keith Malinsky, her co-author of On Dandelion Seed.

Joining us in our first hour will be actor, producer and director Michael Rosenbaum. If you’re a fan of Smallville on The WB, you know that Michael played Lex Luthor for seven seasons on Smallville (a performance that earned him a spot on TV Guide’s list of the 60 Nastiest Villains of All Time back in 2013). If you’re a regular viewer of TV Land, you know that Michael stars in Impastor, an irreverent comedy once described as The Fugitive… but with weed, sex and political incorrectness. New episodes of Impastor air Wednesday nights on TV Land. Michael Rosenbaum will join us at the end of our first hour.

This week’s show will also include a tribute to soap opera pioneer Agnes Nixon, plus a look at the fiftieth anniversary of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
