Agnes Moorehead and Detroit 187: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Charles Transberg, Tony Trupiano and Robert Thompson will be our guests on our next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, premiering Monday, Feb. 28 at 9pm ET, 6pm PT on Shokus Internet Radio, with additional airings Tuesday, Mar. 1 at 11:05pm ET, 8:05pm PT on Passionate World Radio, Friday, Mar. 4 at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,, and Saturday, Mar. 5 at 8pm PT and Sunday, Mar. 6 on KWDJ 1360-AM (Ridgecrest, CA).

Most Baby Boomers think of Agnes Moorehead as Endora, the powerful witch who loved to fools of us mere mortals (and particularly her son-in-law, Darrin Stephens) every week on the long-running ABC comedy series Bewitched. But though Bewitched made Agnes Moorehead a star, it was just one chapter in her long, distinguished and very diverse career, which saw her leave her mark in film, television, theater and radio, including her many collaborations with such legends as Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten and Charles Laughton. That is the key point behind I Love The Illusion, an excellent biography of Agnes Moorehead by film and television historian
Charles Tranberg. We’ll talk about Agnes Moorehead when Charles Tranberg joins us in our second hour.

In our first hour, media consultant and radio talk show host Tony Trupiano will join us as we discuss Detroit 187, the critically acclaimed ABC police drama that is one of many film and TV productions currently being filmed on location in Detroit, Michigan. We’ll talk about what production of Detroit 187 has meant to the community of Detroit, as well as the tax credit program that was designed as an incentive to bring film companies to Michigan, but which has become the subject of political debate.

Plus: pop culture critic Robert Thompson on Charlie Sheen’s latest meltdown and what that bodes for the future of Two and a Half Men.
