Most writers in television tend to be pigeonholed one way or another. Larry Brody is one of those exceptions. Larry has created, produced or written thousands of hours of network and syndicated television, covering such genres as crime drama, medical dramas, period pieces, made for TV movies, and animated series, including such shows as Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Mike Hammer, Walker: Texas Ranger, Cannon, Ironside, Medical Center, Spawn, Ace Lightning and The Silver Surfer. Larry’s books include Turning Points in Television, about seminal moments in the TV industry that Larry witnessed first-hand, and Television Writing From The Inside Out, a comprehensive look at how writing for TV really works, which Larry recently updated as an e-Book. Larry Brody joins us in our first hour.

Larry Brody also runs, an excellent resource for not only new writers, but also experienced writers of television. is currently running two contests, the 22nd People’s Pilot competition, and the Spec Scriptacular. Winners, finalists, or semi-finalists of both contests have gone on to become staff writers on such shows as Chicago Fire, Person of Interest, The Walking Dead and Grey’s Anatomy. There is more than $12,000 worth of prizes, including individual mentorship sessions, cash money, and four weeks of weekly mentorships with Larry Brody. The deadline for entering both contests is Saturday, June 1. For more information, go to

Joining us in our second hour will be Michael St. John. Michael was the first African-American hired as a director for NBC television, where he worked on such shows as Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In and The Andy Williams Show. He has also worked as a stage and film actor in such films as Carmen Jones, the first major Hollywood motion picture featuring an all African-American cast, plus he has covered the entertainment history as a print journalist and radio host.

Michael helped create opportunities for many other African-Americans in the film and television industry. His book, Hollywood Through the Back Door, is filled with great stories about his work with such legends as Pearl Bailey, Dorothy Dandridge, Mary Pickford, Bette Davis, Dan Dailey, Lou Gossett, Brock Peters, Harry Belafonte, and Otto Preminger. Michael has also written a play, I Feel Sin Comin’ On, that is being developed for production later this year, with singer/actress Melba Moore in one of the key roles.
