One of the first “star” producers to emerge from the Golden Age of Television, Roy Huggins not only created and/or produced such classic shows asThe FugitiveMaverick77 Sunset Strip, Run For Your Life and The Rockford Files, but in many ways elevated the form of television writing while also leaving his distinct mark in the genres of Westerns, private eye dramas, and hour-long anthology series. One of the first to recognize the potential of television, Huggins initiated many staples of the medium that are still very relevant today. He was also a complex man who, like many successful people, was not universally liked, for reasons we’ll discuss when Paul Green joins us in the second hour of this week’s program.

Paul’s latest bookRoy Huggins: Creator of Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Fugitive and..., is an intimate portrait of the Emmy Award-winning writer/producer that includes in-depth interviews with many members of Huggins’ personal and professional family, including actress Katherine Crawford (Roy’s daughter), film and television executive Frank Price (Roy’s colleague on The Virginian and, later, his son-in-law), actress Stepfanie Kramer (Hunter), and Roy’s longtime right-hand man at Universal Television, Jo Swerling Jr. Paul was also granted access to Roy’s personal papers and unpublished memoirs, giving the book direct insight into Huggins’ formative years and early career at RKO, Columbia Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. Television.

Roy Huggins: Creator of Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Fugitive and... also includes one of the last interviews given by Juanita Bartlett, the Emmy-nominated writer-producer who passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Bartlett collaborated on many occasions with both Roy Huggins and James Garner, most notably on The Rockford Files. With that in mind, we will replay our August 2012 conversation with Juanita as part of our first hour.
