Wes and Carol and Chris and Prince: Next on TVC

Pop culture author Wesley Hyatt and Chris Korman, son of Harvey Korman, will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Wesley Hyatt will join us this week for the first of a two-part conversation that will take you behind the scenes of The Carol Burnett Show, one of the longest running variety series in the history of network television, and one of the most beloved. The Carol Burnett Show won twenty-five Emmy Awards during its eleven years on CBS, while also providing millions of belly laughs every week. And yet, despite its accomplishments its place in TV history has often been overlooked. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Wes joins us in our first hour.

Wes’ latest book, The Carol Burnett Show Companion: So Glad We Had This Time, is a comprehensive look at The Carol Burnett Show. Wes spent three years researching the series, hunting down episodes that were not otherwise available to the public at the time, plus he interviewed nearly every key writer on the Burnett show, as well as many notable guest stars, including John Byner, Barbara Feldon, Michele Lee, Gloria Loring, Wayne Rogers, Kaye Ballard, David Hartman, Ronnie Schell and Pat Carroll. The book also includes commentary from Chris Korman, Harvey Korman’s son.

Speaking of Chris Korman, Chris will also join us this week to share insight into Harvey Korman, the person. While most people think of Harvey Korman as one of TV’s great second bananas (both on The Carol Burnett Show, as well as The Danny Kaye Show), he was also a gifted teacher, a dedicated actor, and a mentor to many young writers and comedians, not to mention a loving father who instilled a lot of wisdom and life lessons that Chris still lives by today. Chris Korman will join us in our second hour.

This week’s show will also include a tribute to Prince, the music legend who, among other things, was one of the artists who helped define MTV in the early 1980s. The segment will include highlights from our June 2011 conversation with Jason Draper, author of Prince: Chaos, Disruption and Revolution.
