Kathleen Sharp will join us for a look at the life and legacy of Hollywood’s original power couple, Lew and Edie Wasserman, who together ruled over the entertainment industry formore than six decades — first by building MCA, the world's largest talent agency, then buying a broken-down film studio along with some real estate and transforming it all into the multi-billion-dollar global conglomerate known as Universal Studios. Under Lew Wasserman’s rule, Universal created such staples as the made for TV movie, the “wheel” format of revolving weekly series, and the blockbuster feature motion picture, while Edie Wasserman extended their influence into governors' mansions, Senate chambers, the White House, international boardrooms and the world of old Las Vegas. But while Lew Wasserman ran Universal Studios, he and Edie were far from universally liked — in fact, on more than one occasion their rivals and enemies joined forces to bring the Wassermans down. It’s all part of a fascinating look into the inner workings of twentieth-century show business that Kathleen captures in her book Mr. and Mrs. Hollywood: Edie and Lew Wasserman and Their Entertainm..., which we’ll talk about during our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be actor/director Chris Robinson, Dr. Rick Webber on General Hospital, Jack Hamilton on The Bold and the Beautiful, and Sgt. Sandy Komansky on Twelve O’Clock High. If you know your TV history, you know that Chris also appeared in many of the other shows produced by Quinn Martin (includingThe Fugitive, The New Breed, Dan August, The F.B.I., Cannon, The Streets of San Francisco, Barnaby Jonesand Caribe), as well as such films as The Birdman ofAlcatraz, The Young Savages (both with Burt Lancaster),The Hawaiians (with Charlton Heston), Sweet, Sweet Rachel (the pilot for The Sixth Sense), and many Western films and TV series, including Gunsmoke, The Virginian, Wagon TrainZane Grey Theater, and the recent independent film The Forsaken, which Chris says offers a new take on the classic genre that is also very insightful. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Chris Robinson joins us during our first hour.
