Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: We’ll drop in on George, Weezy, Florence, The Willises and everyone else in the Deluxe Apartment in the Sky along with JAY MORIARTY, longtime staff writer, producer, and, later, show runner of THE JEFFERSONS. Jay’s memoir, HONKY IN THE HOUSE: Writing and Producing The Jeffersons, not only takes us inside the writing room of the long-running CBS comedy, but provides the back story of “The Draft Dodger” (the famous but controversial Christmas 1976 episode of ALL IN THE FAMILY, which Jay wrote along with his longtime writing partner, Mike Milligan) and shows us why Norman Lear is one of the smartest, shrewdest, and most courageous producers TV will ever know. HONKY IN THE HOUSE is available right now through Amazon.com
