Daytime Emmys and the Return of Budd Moss: Next on TVC

Emmy Award winner David Michaels and film and TV agent Budd Moss will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,

Budd Burton Moss returns this week for Part 2 of our conversation about his career as a Hollywood agent and talent manager, which 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, and particularly his efforts on behalf of Rita Hayworth, Tom Bosley, John James, Hunter Tylo and former MPAA president Jack Valenti.

Larry King says that both of Budd’s books provide “a wonderful and unique look at a part of the Golden Age in Hollywood TV and films that will never be repeated!” while the late Jack Valenti himself once described Budd as a man “never gives up and is always moving forward,” both of which are indispensable traits to a successful agent. Budd Moss will join us in our first hour.

For our listeners in Southern California, Budd Moss will be appearing at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles, on Saturday, April 23 beginning at 4pm.

This week’s show will also include a return appearance by our friend David Michaels, senior executive director of the Daytime Emmy Awards Broadcast. A recipient of two Emmys himself, David has extensive experience in daytime television as a director and producer on such shows as $25,000 Pyramid, $100,000 Pyramid, Pictionary, Vicki! and Leeza.

The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, May 1 in Los Angeles, while the ceremony will be available for screening online beginning Monday, May 2. We’ll provide a sneak peek of the Daytime Emmys when David Michaels joins in our first hour.
