This weekend’s show will include an encore presentation of our conversation with Tony Award-nominated and Emmy Award-nominated singer/actress Michele Lee. Known around the world as Karen Fairgate MacKenzie in all 344 episodes, and all fourteen seasons, of the landmark CBS series Knots Landing, Michele Lee, of course, left her mark on Broadway long before Knots, starring in the productions of Vintage ’60 and Bravo Giovanni before her breakout role as Rosemary opposite Robert Morse in the original Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Michele, of course, repeated the role of Rosemary for the film version of How to Succeed, while her other feature film and TV-movie credits include Disney’s The Love Bug, The Comic with Dick Van Dyke, Bud and Lou, Scandalous Me: The Jacqueline Susann Story, and as Ben Stiller’s mother in Along Came Polly. She was also the first woman to produce, direct, co-write and star in a motion picture for television, the award-winning and critically acclaimed Color Me Perfect for Lifetime Television.

Calendar year 2019 marks the fortieth anniversary of the premiere of Knots Landing. We’ll talk to Michele about that, as well as The Love Bug; her approach to playing Madame Morrible on Broadway in Wicked; her acclaimed performance as country music superstar Dottie West in Big Hearts and Broken Dreams, one of the most successful TV-movies in CBS history; the back story of Seesaw, the Broadway musical for which Michele received a Tony nomination; and more. Michele Lee will join us in our second hour.

This week’s show will also include an encore presentation of our conversation with Jennifer Armstrong about Sex and the City, the iconic comedy drama starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis that not only changed the television landscape by making HBO a legitimate player in the world of scripted television series, but changed lives across the gender spectrum, across the sexual orientation spectrum and around the world. The first cable TV series to win an Emmy Award, Sex and the City reshaped the cultural perception of single women, sex, dating and marriage. Along the way it also directed the way many women dressed, elevated drinking culture to a social obligation in some circles, foisted brunch upon an unsuspecting nation, and, above all, demonstrated that life-changing love comes in all forms beyond heterosexual marriage and nuclear family.

Now available in paperback, Jennifer’s latest book, Sex and the City and Us: How Four Single Women Changed the Way We Think, Live and Love, walks you through the history of the show that, in many respects, changed the way in which television shows have been made for network, cable and streaming platforms over the past two decades, while also paving the way for the so-called second Golden Age of Television. We’ll about the origins of Sex, its controversial finale, the differences between the Carrie Bradshaw character on the series and how she was originally portrayed in Candace Bushnell’s columns, the alleged “feud” between Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall (and the extent to which one existed at all), and more. Jennifer Armstrong joins in our first hour.
