Loretta Swit: Next on TVC

Emmy Award-winning actress Loretta Swit will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Loretta Swit won two Emmy Awards for playing Major Margaret Houlihan on M*A*S*H, one of TV’s best and most honored series, and one of the few television shows that has never been off the air. What you may not know about Loretta is that she not only has been a strong advocate for animals and animal rights, but is also an accomplished watercolor artist.

Loretta combines her passions for painting, animals and wildlife in a new book, SwitHeart: The Watercolour Artistry & Animal Activism of Loretta Swit, a collection of sixty-four full-color paintings and drawings, all done by Loretta herself, and all accompanied by anecdotes and stories about Loretta’s life, career and work on behalf on animals. We’ll ask Loretta about her interest in watercolor painting, her “proprietary relationship” with wildlife, her vast stage career (including her recent portrayal of former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt), and, of course, a few questions about her years on M*A*S*H. Loretta Swit will join us in our second hour.

SwitHeart is available, both in print and digital editions, through SwitHeart.com and Ultimatesymbol.com/SwitHeart. All proceeds from the sale of SwitHeart will be donated to Loretta’s endless campaign to end animal suffering and cruelty. In addition, a set of greeting cards featuring some of Loretta’s animal paintings and drawings, and a select number of posters based on Loretta’s artwork, are also available for purchase through SwitHeart.com. All proceeds from the sale of SwitHeart greeting cards and posters will also support various animal rights organizations.

For our listeners in Southern California, Loretta Swit will also be appearing, along with David Engel, in the stage production of Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, which will run Feb. 3 thru Feb. 12 at the Annenberg Theater in Palm Springs, CA.

This week’s program will also include a look at the various Norman Lear shows that will be reimagined this year (including One Day at a Time, which premieres this month on Netflix), and whether the topical nature of Lear’s work will resonate with contemporary audiences. Plus: a brand new DVD report and This Week in TV History.
