TV CONFIDENTIAL Archives: Show No. 244 with guests Kevin Sorbo and Douglas Lieblein
First hour: Ed welcomes four-time Emmy nominated writer/producer Douglas Lieblein (Hannah Montana, Life With Boys, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn). Doug’s first novel, Flight of the Akero: The Book of Milo, is a subversively comic, action-packed, science fiction, fantasy adventure for young adults, and adults who still think of themselves as young adults. Also in this hour: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen remember the birth of Alfred Hitchcock and the 40thanniversary of how television covered the resignation of President Nixon. Second hour: Ed welcomes Kevin Sorbo, the actor known around the world as the star of Hercules, the Legendary Journeys. Kevin’s latest film, God’s Not Dead, is an inspirational story that weaves together multiple perspectives on faith, doubt and disbelief before culminating in a call to action. God’s Not Dead is now available on DVD. Also in this hour: Greg Ehrbar on the recent release of Dark Shadows: The Beginning Collection.
