Rockford, Nichols and The Addams Family: Next on TVC

Writer/producer Juanita Bartlett, composer and conductor David Newman, and author Stephen Cox will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio.

One of the first women to establish herself as a writer/producer in the 1970s — at a time when the television industry was still predominantly male-driven — Juanita Bartlett got her first big break in 1971 while working with Frank Pierson on Nichols, the offbeat Western series that also began Juanita’s longtime collaboration with actor James Garner. Juanita not only went on to become of one of the driving forces behind Garner’s long-running TV series The Rockford Files, but wrote and produced such popular shows as The Greatest American Hero, Scarecrow and Mrs. King and Spenser: For Hire. Juanita Bartlett will share some of her memories in television when she joins us in our second hour.

Joining us in our first hour will be Stephen Cox. Steve has written more than twenty books on such popular shows as The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, I Dream of Jeannie, The Addams Family and The Munsters. We’ll compare and contrast The Munsters with The Addams Family, as well as discuss Steve’s biography of Larry Fine, One Fine Stooge.

Plus: Part 2 of our conversation with Academy Award-nominated composer David Newman (Anastasia), and a brand new This Week in TV History.
