Kathy Garver, Jason Stuart, and the Vision of Gene Roddenberry: Next on TVC

Actress and voice artist Kathy Garver, actor and comedian Jason Stuart, and screenwriter and Gene Roddenberry biographer Marc Cushman will join us this weekend TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Known around the world as Cissy Davis on Family Affair, Kathy Garver is about to start production on Aunt Cissy, a new TV series that not only brings viewers up to date on Cissy’s life after Family Affair, but has elements of such modern shows as Modern Family. Kathy will give us a glimpse of her new show, plus we’ll talk about some of her other upcoming projects (including playing a “mob mother” in the forthcoming movie The Hard Edge), as well as her efforts on behalf of A Minor Consideration, the non-profit support and assistance foundation, founded by Paul Petersen, that helps child stars past, present and future make the often difficult transition from child acting to adult life. Kathy Garver will join us in our first hour.

Kathy Garver will be appearing at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend (July 18-21), plus she’ll be taking part in a Child Stars Cruise to Ensenada in December 2019. Visit her website for more information on these and other events on her calendar. Kathy’s latest book, Holiday Recipes for a Family Affair, is now available through Bear Manor Media.

One of the first openly gay stand-up comedians, Jason Stuart is also an accomplished character actor with more than 150 film and TV credits, including My Wife and Kids, Kindergarten Cop, Murder She Wrote, Judd Apatow’s Love, and, more recently, the indie films Abducted, Immortal, and The Infiltrator, and Nate Parker’s searing drama Birth of a Nation. Jason has been performing stand-up for more than thirty years, but he did not find his piece of ground as a comedian until he started doing stand-up material about being gay. We’ll talk about, and more (including the proper inflection to have when saying the name of his new book, Shut Up! I’m Talking), when Jason Stuart will join us in our second hour.

For our listeners in Southern California, Jason Stuart will be performing stand-up at Comedy Pop-Up in Lomita, California on Saturday, July 20. He will also sign copies of Shut Up! I’m Talking: Coming Out in Hollywood and Making It to the Middle at Book Soup in Hollywood on Friday, Aug. 2 along with special guest Alexandra Paul (Alexandra Paul wrote the foreword to Shut Up! I’m Talking), and at Comedy Central Stage Sit and Spin at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Also this week: Part 2 of our conversation with Marc Cushman, author of These Are The Voyages: Star Trek The Original Series, the definitive, three-volume biography of Star Trek: The Original Series that truly goes where no book on film or television has gone before, transporting you back in time to the era in which the original series was made as much as any book possibly can. Among other topics, we’ll talk about what a visionary Gene Roddenberry early in his career, above and beyond Star Trek, as well as the integral role that Lucille Ball played in getting Star Trek on the air. Volume 1 of These Are The Voyages: Star Trek The Original Series was recently updated and expanded to include an additional eighty pages of information. Not only that, it is also available as an audiobook.
