Known worldwide to three generations of sci-fi fans for playing two iconic TV characters ― Alfred Bester on Babylon 5 and, of course, Pavel Chekhov on the original Star Trek television series and the first six Star Trek motion pictures ― Walter Koenig is also an accomplished writer, director and producer who continues to leave his mark in stage, film and publishing, including the four-part comic book series Raver and Things to Come, both of which will be released as graphic novels in 2012. We’ll ask Walter how he got involved in the comic book industry, as well as the short film he recently completed, and perhaps a question or two about Star Trek, when he joins us in our second hour.

Walter Koenig will be receiving a star on the venerable Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012, making him the last of the seven cast members of the original Star Trek series to be so honored. beginning in January. Walter will also be appearing at OZ TREK 7 in Melbourne, Australia on Jan. 28-29, 2012, as well as at FED CON 21 in Dusseldorf, Germany on May 17-20, 2012, and the Annual Official Star Trek Convention at the Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas Aug. 9-12, 2012.

Also joining us this week will be award-winning writer/producer Larry Brody, whose many credits in television include such shows as Police Story, Mike Hammer, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Barnaby Jones, Cannon and The Streets of San Francisco. Larry also runs TVWriter.com, an excellent resource for both new and experienced writers of television, while his books about the TV industry include Television Writing From The Inside Out and Turning Points in Television.

In keeping with our Star Trek theme for this program, one of the mentors who helped Larry the most in his career was none other than Gene Roddenberry. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Larry Brody joins us in our first hour.

Plus: Part 2 of our conversation with actor and author
Peter Ford. Peter’s book, Glenn Ford: A Life, provides a very nuanced look at both the private and professional lives of Glenn Ford, one of America’s greatest motion picture actors. We’ll talk about Glenn’s early years as a contract player with Columbia Pictures, his troubled marriage to fellow screen legend Eleanor Powell, some of his noted love affairs, and a whole lot more.

Peter Ford is also the subject of A Little Prince, a forthcoming documentary by Alexander Roman about Peter’s life as the only son of Glenn Ford and Eleanor Powell. For more information about the film, as well as to view the trailer, go to www.alitttleprince.net.
