Joyce Bulifant, Cloak & Dagger, and the Untold Mary Tyler Moore: Next on TVC

Actress and author Joyce Bulifant, author Herbie J Pilato, and actress Cecilia Leal will join us this weekend on  TV CONFIDENTIAL, airing Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Most of you know Joyce Bulifant from her many appearances on The CBS Match Game and other popular game shows, not to mention such films and TV shows as The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Love Thy Neighbor, Disney’s The Happiest Millionaire, The Bill Cosby Show, Big John, Little John and Airplane! Calendar year 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Airplane!, which the American Film Institute recognized as the “100 Funniest Films of All Time.” We will ask Joyce about that, plus we’ll talk about her inspiring book, My Four Hollywood Husbands, which tells the story of how Joyce managed to overcome dyslexia, feelings of self worth, and a series of marriages characterized by alcoholism, co-dependency and addictive behavior—and still remain as effervescent as ever. Joyce Bulifant will join us in our second hour.

Joyce Bulifant can also be seen in I Hate Kids, a new Amazon original motion picture that was directed by Joyce’s son John Asher. Also now available on DVD, I Hate Kids features the final screen appearance of Joyce’s husband Roger Perry. Our conversation with Joyce this week will also include a tribute to Roger Perry.

This week’s program will include a return appearance by author and TV historian Herbie J Pilato. Herbie’s books include Bewitched Forever, a behind the scenes look at the classic TV series starring Elizabeth Montgomery, and Twitch Upon a Star: The Bewitching Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery. Herbie’s latest book explores the life and career of Mary Tyler Moore, the iconic star of The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

On screen, of course, Mary Tyler Moore turned the world on with her smile. Off screen, however, she struggled with various physical, psychological, and professional challenges—not the least of which was her long bout with diabetes. Mary: The Mary Tyler Moore Story not only explores the many ways in which Moore’s life was affected by that debilitating disease, but sheds light into Moore’s relationship with her second husband, Grant Tinker—and particularly how that changed the face of The Dick Van Dyke Show and ultimately determined its future. Herbie J Pilato will join us in our second hour.

For our listeners in Southern California, Herbie J Pilato will be appearing at the Larry Edmonds Bookstore in Holllywood, CA on Thursday, April 19 beginning at 7:30pm. He is also scheduled to appear at the Cerritos Millenium Library in Cerritos, CA on Wednesday, June 12, also starting at 7:30pm.

Also joining us this week will be actress Cecilia Leal. Cecilia is one of the new cast members on Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, which just started its second season Thursday nights on Disney’s Freeform. She can also be seen in the romantic drama Five Feet Apart, which is playing theaters everywhere. Cecilia’s other credits include the USA series The Purge, and the Audience Network series Mr. Mercedes, plus she will be featured in an upcoming sci-fi/thriller that will soon become available on Netflix. Cecilia Leal will join us in our first hour.
