Robert Crane, Audrey Walters, and the Allure of Green Acres: Next on TVC

Screenwriter and journalist Robert Crane and actress, teacher and entrepreneur Audrey Walters will join us this weekend on TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

The eldest son of actor Bob Crane, Robert Crane is a successful freelance journalist, screenwriter and author who has interviewed a host of actors, comedians, studio executives, writers, directors, musicians and other creative people for Playboy, Playgirl, Oui, the Los Angeles Times, and other publications. One of those assignments led to Bob to a six-year association as a publicist, producer and confidant to actor John Candy.

Bob’s latest book, Hollywood Plateau, is a collection of candid interviews with the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, Joan Rivers, Roseanne Barr, Spinal Tap, Bruce Dern, John Wayne, Jack Nicholson, Chevy Chase, Jamie Foxx, Cheech and Chong, the cast of SCTV, Oscar de la Hoya, and Jan Stephenson that Bob originally conducted over a forty-year period (circa 1974 to 2013), prior to the era of political correctness—a time when industry people spoke their minds without self and organizational censorship. In many cases, Bob interviewed these celebrities when they were just coming onto the scene, and before they became as famous (or, as in the case of Barr, infamous) as we know them to be today. We’ll talk about that, plus we’ll hear some of the back stories of these conversations—including how Bob came to interview Koko, the sign-language-speaking gorilla.

Bob also put together a special ten-question TV trivia quiz in which every question relates to the career of his dad. See how many answers you know when Robert Crane joins us in our second hour.

This week’s program will also feature actress, teacher and entrepreneur Audrey Walters. As an actress, Audrey has appeared in such films and TV series as Preacher, Killer Women, What if?, Mile High Laci, Revenge for Real: Rocky Mountain Retribution, The Lake, Camouflage, Diablo Canyon, and After the Fall. When she is not acting, Audrey draws on her background as a broadcast journalist and entrepreneur to co-run the youth workshop Talk to the Camera, which helps elementary and middle school children develop their social communication skills through exercises and activities that require them to make eye contact with other people. Though Talk to the Camera is based in Denver, Colorado, it has recently expanded to two other states, while franchising opportunities remain available. We will talk about that, and more, when Audrey Walters joins us in our second hour.

Audrey Walters plays a sultry, take-charge Madame in Big Kill, a Western from Archstone Pictures starring Lou Diamond Phillips, Jason Patric and Danny Trejo that will be released later this year in theaters and Video on Demand. She also appears as real estate agent Mrs. Boychuk in the dark comedy Arizona, which premiered earlier in 2018 at Sundance and which will also be released theatrically and On Demand either late summer or early fall.

Plus: With a stage production of Green Acres now in the works, Greg Ehrbar will revisit the long-running CBS series from the mid 1960s that, in many respects, was the closest thing American television came to capturing the genius and absurdity of Monty Python.
