Remembering the Cool Ghoul: Next on TVC

Screenwriter and producer Jonathan Tropper will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,

Our guest this week will be Jonathan Tropper, the co-creator and executive producer of Banshee, and the author of six novels, two of which (This is Where I Leave You and One Last Thing Before I Go) he has adapted for the big screen. Though Banshee recently ended its four-year run on Cinemax, Jonathan has a few other projects in the works for HBO. We’ll ask him about that, and more, when he joins in our first hour.

Also this week: We’ll remember John Zacherle, the iconic New York horror movie host known who passed away on Oct. 27 at the age of 98. Known as The Cool Ghoul (a moniker he received from none other than Dick Clark), Zacherle influenced an entire generation of local TV horror movie hosts, including Svengoolie.

You might recall that we paid tribute to John Zacherle in January 2013 as part of the Sounds of Lost Television. We’ll replay that tribute in its entirety in our second hour.
