Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Emmy-nominated writer, producer and actor BILLY VAN ZANDT on why comedians are born hearing a certain rhythm; his friendship with Lucille Ball and the influence she continues to have on his career; why working with Martin Lawrence reminded him of both Jerry Lewis and Bob Newhart; and why his experience working with Don Rickles on Daddy Dearest remains one of his best experiences in television. Billy’s memoir, GET IN THE CAR, JANE! Adventures in the TV Wasteland not only provides a front row seat to the adsurdity that often goes on behind the scenes in network TV, but offers useful tips on how to deal with the day-to-day frustrations of your job, no matter what you do for a living
