Unsold TV Pilots, plus a Tribute to Frank Gifford: Next on TVC

Television writer/producer, publisher and author Lee Goldberg and television historian and author Wesley Hyatt will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision RadioKSAV.org.

Lee Goldberg is a two-time Edgar Award and Shamus Award nominee whose numerous TV credits include writing and producing such shows as Diagnosis Murder, Monk, Psych, Hunter, Nero Wolfe, Sliders and Spenser: For Hire. Lee has also written more than forty books, including The Walk, King City, Watch Me Die, a series of original novels based on Diagnosis Murder and Monk, and the internationally best-selling Fox & O’Hare series that he co-authors with Janet Evanovich (the latest of which, The Scam, will be released on Sept. 15). In addition, Lee is also co-founder of Brash Books, which recently re-released Poor, Poor Ophelia, the 1970 novel by Carolyn Weston that served as the basis for The Streets of San Francisco.

Lee has recently updated and re-released two books: Television Fast Forward, a look at every TV series revival, sequel or remake that was made from the 1950s through the 1990s, and Unsold Television Pilots: 1955-1989, a TV reference book that became a national media sensation, in part because of Johnny Carson. We’ll talk about some of the best shows you never saw on television when Lee Goldberg will join us in our second hour.

Wesley Hyatt will join us in our first hour as we look at the broadcast career of Frank Gifford, the Hall of Fame halfback for the New York Giants who was a mainstay on ABC’s Monday Night Football for more than twenty-five years. Wes’ books on music, film and television include Kicking Off the Week: A History of ABC’s Monday Night Football, 1970-2005 and Television’s Top 100: The Most Watched American Broadcasts, 1960-2010.
