Deric Hughes and Ben Raab are writers for Syfy’s WAREHOUSE 13. Hailing from the world of comics and new media, they were obvious hires for season one and easily made the cut for season two. In this fast half-hour they discuss their start in the business and the experience of working on a hit show.
CHILDREN OF THE CORN: A NEW CROP. That could have been the working title of Don Borchers’ latest filmic adventure for Syfy. Don’s been producing, writing and directing movies since the early 1980s. And in September of 2009 he revisited his past by once again aligning himself with Stephen King’s classic tale of murderous kids in a midwestern cornfield. Syfy’s CHILDREN OF THE CORN is Don’s faithful adaptation (produced, written and directed by Don) of King’s short story. Grim and gruesome, the film is not to be missed. Don’s tenacious, driven and determined to follow through on whatever he sets his sights on. Listen in and learn something. We did.
Let Del Reisman take you back to the Golden Age of Television. When he was a kid hanging out on the Universal backlot, or later in the midst of 35 missions as a bombardier flying over Germany during WWII, Del had no idea he’d wind up smack in the middle of one of the most creatively fervent periods in the history of American Broadcasting. When TV drama was in its infancy and young men like John Frankenheimer, Franklin Schaffner and Paddy Chayefsky were telling the country all about itself with live television productions, Del was there. He was also there with Rod Serling when a little CBS show called The Twilight Zone hit the airwaves and changed television forever. Listen in.
Lee Goldberg’s resumé reads like a TV what’s-what for the last twenty years. His television creations are legion not only in the U.S. but he’s dabbled a bit in Europe as well. And if that’s not enough, he’s also a published novelist. Next up: splitting the atom. Listen in.
