Deborah Pearl and Chris Korman: Next on TVC

Writer/director Deborah Pearl and comedy scholar Chris Korman will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Our first hour will include Part 2 of our conversation with writer/director Deborah Pearl. Once described as an “embarrassment of talents,” Deborah is also an accomplished singer, songwriter, and playwright whose credits writing for film and television include Head of the Class, 227 and Designing Women, while her CD Souvenir of You: New Lyrics to Benny Carter Classics pays tribute to the music of jazz legend Benny Carter while also featuring original lyrics written by Deborah herself.

Deborah Pearl is also the writer/director of Getting Ed Laid, the award-winning coming of “old age” story starring Ed Asner and Jean Smart that will be screened on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 1:30pm as part of the Washington West Film Festival in the Washington, D.C. area. Both Ed and Deborah will appear at the screening and participate in a Q&A session afterward. For more information on the Oct. 23 event, as well as news on any future screenings, go to www.wwfilmfest.com, as well as GettingEdLaid.com or the Getting Ed Laid fan page on Facebook.

Our second hour will include a return appearance by Chris Korman, son of actor/comedian Harvey Korman (The Carol Burnett Show), and the stepson of character actor George DiCenzo (Dark Shadows, McClain’s Law, Vincent Bugliosi in the original Helter Skelter). Chris will talk about DiCenzo’s career in film, television and voice work, while also sharing some more backstage stories about his father’s work with Danny Kaye and Carol Burnett.

Also this week: In light of the recent premiere of Crisis in Six Scenes, the much anticipated television series that Woody Allen made for Amazon Prime, Phil Gries will join us for a replay of our October 2011 tribute to the early television career of Allen. Phil’s personal and profession association with Allen dates back twenty years, as a result of Archival Television Audio. This week’s segment will focus on Allen’s various appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
