Original Airdates:
Sept. 14-17, 2018

Listen to “TV CONFIDENTIAL Show No. 419 with guests Cy Chermak, Will Ryan and Michael Schlesinger” on Spreaker.

First hour: Greg Ehrbar joins Ed for Part 2 of our conversation with Will Ryan and Michael Schlesinger. Will is the star, along with Nick Santa Maria, and Michael is the writer, producer and director, of The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster, a collection of five 1930s-style comedies that pay homage to The Three Stooges, Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy and other vintage comedy teams. The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster also includes a ton of bonus features, including an additional short (“First Things Last”), more than an hour of bloopers and outtakes, and a 1962-style “reunion” interview that Will and Nick perform in character as Biffle and Shooster. (Four of the five shorts, (“The Biffle Murder Case,” “Imitation of Wife,” “Schmo Boat” and “Bride of Finklestein,” are also available for viewing on demand on Amazon, Vudu and other streaming platforms, under the umbrella title The Adventures of Biffle and Shooster.) The hour also includes a surprise appearance by Emmy Award-winning writer and producer and former Disney Records producer Jymn Magon. Second hour: Ed welcomes award-winning television producer Cy Chermak (The Virginian, Ironside, CHiPs, Kolchak: The Night Stalker). Cy’s book, The Show Runner: An Insider’s Guide to Successful TV Production, tells you everything you need to know to succeed as a producer in television today, from the importance of a good concept, keeping it believable, and staying on top of the writing, to staying within budget and knowing when to delegate responsibilities while still maintaining control. The Show Runner also addresses such topical issues as the #MeToo movement (and, specifically, how to avoid the pitfalls of the casting couch), how to deal with the media, and how to protect your stars, plus insight into the likes of James Drury, Doug McClure, David Hartman, Darren McGavin, and David Chase.

After beginning his career as a stage actor in New York, where he appeared in two Broadway plays, Cy Chermak moved to Hollywood during the Golden Age of Television, where he not only wrote for such anthology shows as Kraft Theater, Front Row Center, and Suspense, but developed a reputation as one of the best script doctors in the industry. That led to an opportunity to produce The Virginian, the first 90-minute Western on television (which Cy produced for five seasons), as well as many other network series, including such iconic shows as Ironside, CHiPs, and Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

Cy’s new book, The Show Runner: An Insider’s Guide to Successful TV Production, tells you everything you need to know to succeed as a producer in television today, from the importance of a good concept, keeping it believable, and staying on top of the writing, to staying within budget and knowing when to delegate responsibilities while still maintaining control. Cy’s book is also filled with great stories based on real-life experiences (including insight into the likes of James Drury, Doug McClure, David Hartman, Darren McGavin, and David Chase), lessons learned, regrets and many delights. The Show Runner also addresses such topical issues as the #MeToo movement (and, specifically, how to avoid the pitfalls of the casting couch), how to deal with the media, how to protect your stars, and what to do to keep substance abuse out of the production, while also answering such burning questions as Why Are There So Many Producer Credits on TV Shows Today? Cy Chermak will join us in our second hour.

This week’s show will also include Part 2 of our conversation with Will Ryan and Michael Schlesinger. Will is the star, along with Nick Santa Maria, and Michael is the writer, producer and director, of The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster, a collection of 1930s-style comedies that pay homage to The Three Stooges, Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy and other vintage comedy teams. While Mike, Will and Nick made these films over the last five years, the sets, the camera shots and, above all, the performances of everyone involved are so convincing, they look and sound as if they were unearthed from the same Golden Era of Hollywood to which they pay tribute. We’ll talk about some of the extra features on the Biffle and Shooster DVD, as well as why Biffle and Shooster appeal to audiences of all ages (including young viewers), whether more films are in the works, plus a special surprise guest. Will Ryan and Michael Schlesinger will join us in our first hour.

The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster is a collection of five comedy shorts (all but one of which was filmed in black and white), including “The Biffle Murder Case,” “Imitation of Wife,” “Schmo Boat,” “Bride of Finklestein,” and “It’s a Frame Up,” while guests stars include H.M. Wynant, Dick Miller, Andrew Parks, Robert Forster and Robert Picardo. The DVD also includes a ton of bonus features, including an additional short (“First Things Last”), more than an hour of bloopers and outtakes, and a 1962-style “reunion” interview that Will and Nick perform in character as Biffle and Shooster. (“The Biffle Murder Case,” “Imitation of Wife,” “Schmo Boat” and “Bride of Finklestein” are also available for viewing on demand on Amazon, Vudu and other streaming platforms, under the umbrella title The Adventures of Biffle and Shooster.)

The voice of Porky Pig since March 1990—not to mention the voice of countless other animated characters on various TV series, movies and videogames—Bob Bergen is a living breathing reminder that, with hard work, determination and a little luck here and there, you really can make your childhood dreams come true.

As a kid, Bob spent hours upon hours watching and taping cartoons, imitating voices as well as creating characters of his own. His dream was to voice The Looney Tunes—and, in particular, Porky Pig. Bob’s idol was Mel Blanc, and he worked day and night trying to perfect eh-puh-peh-eh Porky’s famous voice. Then, when Bob was fourteen, his family moved to Los Angeles. There, Bob devoted himself to learning how to break into the voiceover industry (specifically, how to get into the world of doing voices for cartoons). Before long, he found himself taking voice-over classes from such legendary voice artists as Daws Butler, Louise Chamis, Michael Bell, Brian Cummings, and Dave Madden. Then, when Bob was eighteen, a family connection brought him to the attention of Casey Kasem. Kasem offered Bob his assistance, asking only one thing in return: That, one day, Bob return to other young artists the generosity that was shown to him.

We’ll talk about the generosity of the voice artist community, Bob’s friendship with voice legend June Foray, how he came to meet his idol, Mel Blanc, and more when Bob Bergen joins us in our second hour.

Besides being one of the most respected working voice actors in the industry today, Bob Bergen is also an accomplished voice teacher. He is in his thirty-first year teaching his animation voice workshop in Los Angeles. He also travels the U.S. and Canada teaching weekend voiceover workshops, plus he offers private sessions. If you are interested in voice over work, contact Bob through his website.

This week’s show will also include a return appearance by actress Lili Bordán. Known for playing for a wide range of characters for many genres, Lily is one of the stars of The Nun, the highly anticipated horror movie that opens in theaters everywhere on Friday, Sept. 7.

Earlier this year, Lili had a supporting role in the romantic comedy Book Club (now available on DVD and for streaming on demand), where she worked alongside Mary Steenburgen and had an opportunity to meet one of her idols, Diane Keaton. Later this year, she’ll be seen as Warner Bros. story editor Irene Lee in Curtiz, the upcoming biopic about Casablanca director Michael Curtiz that premiered last week at the Montreal World Film Festival. Lili Bordán will join us in our first hour.

Also this week: Geoffrey Mark will share the back stories of some of the songs featured on the long-awaited two-CD set that accompanies his latest book, Ella: A Biography of the Legendary Ella Fitzgerald, including Ella’s many collaborations with Louis Armstrong (and, particularly, what Satchmo used to whisper in her ear before the start of each song they performed). Geoffrey Mark will join us in our first hour.

Geoffrey Mark will perform some of the songs of Ella Fitzgerald on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the Santa Monica Public Library. The Deluxe Edition of Ella: A Biography of the Legendary Ella Fitzgerald includes a two-CD set with thirty-nine tracks of Ella in her prime.

Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Leslie Bertram Crane on her career working behind the scenes in network television, both in production and post-production. Leslie spent more than a decade in variety television, not only on weekly series but high profile specials and such live events as the Jerry Lewis telethon and two Oscarcasts, before becoming as a “switcher” on such top shows as Friends, The Drew Carey Show, and Murphy Brown. She’ll tell you what a “switcher” does, plus she’ll give you an idea of just how many plates are spinning behind the camera of most variety TV shows. Our conversation will air in a few weeks. Leslie is also co-author, along with her husband Robert Crane, of Burn The Ice, a book that details the adventures of two bartenders in L.A.

If you have Netflix, you’ve seen Trine Christensen as Jacob Gustavson’s wife on Godless, the seven-episode Western miniseries that is up for twelve Emmy Awards this year, including nominations for Best Actor (Jeff Daniels), Best Limited Series, plus writing and directing nods for series creator Scott Frank. If you watch the AMC original series Preacher, you know her as the wife of The Saint of Killers (the character played by Graham McTavish). Trine began her acting career doing stunts on The Terminator: Salvation, Gamer and The Spy Next Door. She has also appeared in numerous short films, as well as such network, cable and streaming series as Longmire, Breaking Bad, The Brave, Killer Women and Smitty’s.

Born in Denmark, Trine originally studied to be a scientist until a trip to New Mexico changed the course of her life and set her on a path to becoming an actor. We’ll ask her about that, plus we’ll talk about the challenges of playing a character who does not have a first name, and how Trine recently “found her game” while learning comedy improv skills with the Upright Citizens Brigade. Trine Christensen will join us in our first hour.

Ali Agirnas, another cast member of Godless, will join us in our second hour. Ali plays Nicholas Gustavson, the frontiersman who helps set up Frank Griffin’s now iconic line “This is Godless country” in the Netflix miniseries.

Ali is relatively new to acting, having made his professional debut just ten years ago after a successful career as an entrepreneur. We’ll talk about his back story (which includes growing up in Turkey and Germany), his passion for surfing, and how proud he was to speak his father’s native language when he played a Turkish detective on the NBC series The Brave.

PASADENA – APR 27: Adam Sharp at the 45th Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Gala at the Pasadena Civic Center on April 27, 2018 in Pasadena, California

Also joining us this week will be Adam Sharp, interim president of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (aka The Daytime Emmy Awards) and former Head of News, Government and Elections at Twitter. Earlier this year, the Daytime Emmy Awards more than doubled its viewership from last year’s telecast—an impressive feat that becomes even more amazing when you realize the Daytime Emmys pulled that off this year without being televised on a traditional network. We will ask Adam how they did that. We’ll also discuss why daytime TV in its many formats remains viable today, the difference between false news and fake news, and what to look for so that you don’t fall for either. Adam Sharp will join us in our first hour.
