Interview with Alex Gibney, Scott Higham, Dr. Anna Lembke and Dr. Art Van Zee of “Crime of the Century” on HBO by Suzanne 2/10/21

I was delighted to attend this TCA Virtual Press Tour. I was only able to ask one question because there were so many press there. This sounds like a great documentary that everyone should watch.

Today (2/23) I was asked to take the transcript down, for some legal reasons (that has never happened before, but I guess the TCA has different rules than regular TV networks). I will get a summary together for you later.

The two-part documentary “The Crime of the Century” from Academy Award and Emmy winner Alex Gibney, is a searing investigative work that reveals the inner workings of the multi-billion dollar industry behind the opioid epidemic. Following the trailer, we will be joined by Alex Gibney, Director, Writer and Producer, and Film Subjects Scott Higham, Washington Post Investigative Reporter, Dr. Anna Lembke, Medical Director of Addiction Medicine at Stanford University, and Dr. Art Van Zee, Primary Care Physician. (Clip shown.)

Here is the question I asked:

MODERATOR: Good morning to our panel. Our first question comes from Suzanne Lanoue.

SUZANNE LANOUE: Hi. How long did it take for you to make this?

Alex Gibney: It took about two years from start to finish. It started with a meeting at “The Washington Post” where the editors and the reporters, Scott Higham included, sort of educated me in terms of the breadth of this. So about two years from start to finish.

Here are links to other reporters’ summary of the discussion.

HBO Documentary Films Announces THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY, A Searing Investigative Work Revealing The Inner Workings Of The Multi-Billion Dollar Industry Behind The Opioid Epidemic

TCA | Winter 2021 The Crime of the Century

Two-Part Documentary From Academy Award-Winning Director Alex Gibney Debuts This May

HBO’s THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY, a two-part documentary directed by Emmy® and Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney (HBO’s “The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley,” “Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief”), is a searing indictment of Big Pharma and the political operatives and government regulations that enable over-production, reckless distribution and abuse of synthetic opiates.  Exploring the origins, extent and fallout of one of the most devastating public health tragedies of our time, with half a million deaths from overdoses this century alone, the film reveals that America’s opioid epidemic is not a public health crisis that came out of nowhere.

With the help of whistleblowers, insiders, newly-leaked documents, exclusive interviews and access to behind-the-scenes investigations, and featuring expert input from medical professionals, journalists, former and current government agents, attorneys and pharmaceutical sales representatives, as well as sobering testimony from victims of opioid addiction, Gibney’s exposé posits that drug companies are in fact largely responsible for manufacturing the very crisis they profit from, to the tune of billions of dollars…and thousands of lives.

THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY will debut on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max this May.

The opioid crisis has resulted in a country ravaged by corporate greed and betrayed by some of its own elected officials, following the aggressive promotion of OxyContin, a highly addictive drug from family owned pharmaceutical giant, Purdue Pharma. Purdue worked closely with the FDA to get the highly profitable pain medication approved for wider use, promoting its safety without sufficient evidence, and creating a campaign to redefine pain and how we treat it. When government regulators or Justice Department officials tried to mitigate the wrongdoing, Purdue Pharma and companies like Cardinal-Health that were huge opioid distributors would settle the cases, keep the details private and continue on unabated. As tens of thousands of people succumbed to opioid addiction, the fortunes built by the opiate business became the crime of the century, and the market that OxyContin had opened paved the way for even deadlier prescription drugs.

Contributing to Part One of THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY are: author Patrick Radden Keefe; opioid specialist Dr. Andrew Kolodny; former Purdue sales rep. Mark Ross; addiction specialist Dr. Anne Lembke; Life Tree pain clinic founder Dr. Lynn Webster; Roy Bosley, whose wife died of an opioid overdose; author and NY Times reporter Barry Meier; primary care physician Dr. Art Van Zee; former Department of Justice official Paul Pelletier; and EMT Giles Sartin.

Part Two of THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY shines a spotlight on the mass marketing of the synthetic opioid fentanyl and examines the connections between drug manufacturers and government policy.  While America’s silent epidemic was killing 40 people a day, Insys Therapeutics, an upstart opioid manufacturer of fentanyl, continued to bribe doctors to overprescribe. Startling video of sales retreats and promotional material speak to a deep cynicism among company employees and a disregard for the widespread, nefarious corporate practices. A complex scheme to defraud the insurance companies existed side by side with fraudulent marketing tactics while lawmakers continued to turn a blind eye to the implications of a complex pipeline that delivers billions of pills around the country.

Interweaving stories of personal tragedy from first responders, survivors and family members of opioid victims with the timeline of corporate greed and malfeasance, Part Two of THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY includes insights from former DEA agent Joe Rannazzisi; former DEA attorney Jonathan Novak; Washington Post reporters Sari Horwitz, Scott Higham, Lenny Bernstein; Assistant U.S. Attorneys for Massachusetts David Lazarus, Nathaniel Yeager and Fred Wyshak; former V.P. of Sales at Insys Alec Burlakoff; former Insys regional sales manager Sunrise Lee; and fentanyl dealer Sidney Caleb Lanier. Woven together, the character-driven stories form a larger narrative of shocking corruption.

HBO Documentary Films’ presents a Jigsaw Production in association with Storied Media Group, THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY written and directed by Alex Gibney; produced by Alex Gibney, Sarah Dowland, and Svetlana Zill; executive produced by Stacey Offman, Richard Perello, Todd Hoffman, and Aaron Fishman; For HBO: senior producer, Tina Nguyen; executive producers, Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller.

Interview with Alan Tudyk #2

TV Interview!

Alan Tudyk of "Resident Alien" on Syfy

Interview with Alan Tudyk of “Resident Alien” on Syfy by Suzanne 2/2/21

I was thrilled to be able to interview Alan, even if they only gave me about 12 minutes. He was very nice, and he was fun to chat with. I love this new show, and I can’t wait to see more.

Here is the audio version of the “Resident Alien” part of it, or you can hear the entire interview here.

Suzanne: Hi, Alan, how are you?

Alan: Hey, how you doing?

Suzanne: Oh, good.

Alan: I’m great.

Suzanne: I’m a huge– I’m a huge fan of yours, ever since “Firefly.”

Alan: Thank you very much.

Suzanne: And I loved “Con Man.” It was so funny, and I’m glad to say that “Resident Alien” is funny. I’m hooked on it. I watched the first seven episodes this weekend, and it’s just great. I can’t wait to see the next one.

Alan: Thank you, how brilliant. That’s great. Thank you.

Suzanne: You’re welcome. So, can you tell us how this role came about for you?

Alan: It came about in a very normal way, sort of like most roles that I’ve ever had. They’re all pretty much just a call, like, “Here’s the script. They can’t find this guy. Would you want to go in on this?” type of thing. They literally auditioned many people before.

I fell in love with it immediately, went and auditioned, and met David Dobkin who directed the pilot, and Chris Sheridan. They were, I think, on FaceTime. We didn’t even know about Zoom back then! They were on FaceTime, and I was in a casting office in Los Angeles, and it was one of the auditions that I got done with and walked away and said, “I think that went well,” because they seemed so happy. Not always the case.

Suzanne: When was it filmed?

Alan: Oh my gosh, so long ago we filmed this. We filmed the pilot two years ago. We started, and then Syfy liked it and said, “Okay, we’re probably going to pick this up. We’re going to pick it up. Yeah, we’re picking it up.” It took some time to come up with that idea. Then they said, “But we don’t know when we’re gonna shoot it,” and they kept – I don’t know what they were doing. I just assumed it had to do with scheduling and big corporate-y decisions that I wasn’t privy to.

So, we finally shot it, probably almost a year later we got into shooting the series, and then COVID came along and pushed us out another six months. We finished it just a few months ago, two or three months ago.

Suzanne: Had you worked with any of the other people on the series before this?

Alan: Never, nobody. It was great. Well, it was great, because we all got along, and they’re kind of like a whole new group of friends.

Suzanne: That’s great. There’re a lot of people in that cast.

Alan: I know. I know. I knew Corey Reynolds before, from his work, but I have to admit, I hadn’t met or hadn’t seen anybody else’s [work] from the cast prior. Everybody’s so great. I hope when people watch it, they enjoy the new faces. They’re so funny and good.

Suzanne: Even though it’s a big cast, they make each character so distinct that you don’t get confused. Sometimes, you watch a show and you’re like, “Who are all these people?” But they did a good job with it.

Alan: Right, yes, they did.

Suzanne: I heard that you went to clown school to help you prepare for the role. Is that true?

Alan: I did, well… I took a clown class in – my first clown class in the late 1900s, in 1993 or 1994 when I went to Juilliard. There’s a clown named Chris Bayes, and he runs a program at Yale, and one of his students Orlando [unintelligible] is a great friend of mine, who also went to Juilliard, but now he teaches clowning at NYU. I know lots of clowns. I love clowns, like real clowns. Clowning is a big part of theater training at the major schools around the United States, for sure.

When we did the pilot, I had identified… so much of who Harry was could be considered clowning because of his physicality, the challenges in the physicality, and his lack of knowledge. He’s just waved into situations without knowing the rules, the social rules, and he’s curious. You just have to put put your head in a place where you’re looking at the world where anything is possible. That’s kind of how clowns see the world, and I mean, I’m talking good clowns. These are like the Lecoq School of Clowning out of France. These aren’t the kind of clowns that hang out in sewers and kill children and make them float. These are the real kind of Charlie Chaplin type of Laurel and Hardy clowns.

Suzanne: It’s interesting that you brought up the physicality, because when they showed you learning how to walk and talk and all that, it really reminded me of like a comedy version of Jeff Bridges and “Starman” when he first arrives.

Alan: I saw “Starman” when that thing came out!

Suzanne: Yeah, me too.

Alan: Yeah, I love his performance in that. His breathing always freaked me out. [laughs] He went for real on that, like he was into the mechanics of how to – I don’t go that far, luckily, for me, because I can’t hear that sound again and again, but definitely the manipulating your mouth, you know, that sort of thought process behind some of the speaking when he’s learning to speak. It’s like you’re pushing air over the back of the tongue and you manipulate the tongue in this way to create these sounds and these sounds mean these things. So, he becomes alien pretty fast if that’s your thought process going on in your head.

Suzanne: When you’re looking like the alien, how long does it take for them to make you look like that?

Alan: Two hours. Two hours, and there is another version of the alien that we haven’t seen yet that is much more involved. It’s sort of torso piece that is closer to four hours, and that involves body shaving, and I’m not a hirsuite man, but any kind of hair becomes problematic. So, you try to go all swimmer with yourself and just lose all the hair. So, that’s no fun, but usually just the main one, whenever the kid Max sees me and you see me standing there in my flannel shirt with the alien head and hands, that’s a two hour process.

Suzanne: What was the best part for you, filming the series?

Alan: I love this stuff. Early on, you mentioned walking and talking and sitting and trying to figure out how to sit down. Any new experiences, especially the physicality stuff that is that the challenge for Harry, those are so much fun for me. I enjoy going to work and falling down. It’s just something I’ve done since I was a child. Then I learned to balance, and then I kept falling down, because I found it very funny. I like falling down and getting hit with things. So, anytime there’s more of the physical stuff, those are fun.

Suzanne: Thank you so much!

Alan: Thank you.

‘RESIDENT ALIEN’ BLOOPER REEL & DELETED SCENE REVEALED
 
Season Finale Airs Wednesday, March 31 at 10/9c
 
In advance of the season finale, we’re excited to share the hysterical season 1 blooper reel and deleted scene from episode 7.
 

Based on the Dark Horse comic, SYFY’s RESIDENT ALIEN follows Harry, an alien played by Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One,” “Firefly”) that crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Arriving with a secret mission to kill all humans, Harry starts off living a simple life… but things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does so, he begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his mission and asking the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?”

From UCP, in association with Amblin TV and Dark Horse Entertainment, RESIDENT ALIEN was adapted to television by executive producer Chris Sheridan (“Family Guy”). Mike Richardson (“Hellboy”) and Keith Goldberg (“The Legend of Tarzan”) of Dark Horse Entertainment (“The Umbrella Academy”), and Justin Falvey (“The Americans”) and Darryl Frank (“The Americans”) of Amblin TV also executive produce. David Dobkin (“Wedding Crashers”) executive produced and directed the pilot. “Resident Alien” also stars Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund and Levi Fiehler.

    Airing 2/27/21 (Saturday) (10:00 PM) THE DISAPPEARANCE OF A 3-YEAR-OLD GIRL OVER 13 YEARS AGO CAPTURED THE WORLD’S ATTENTION – NOW THERE IS A SUSPECT WHO MAY KNOW WHAT HAPPENED – “48 HOURS” INVESTIGATES IN “THE PUZZLE: SOLVING THE MADELEINE MCCANN CASE” Preview
    The disappearance of a 3-year-old girl while vacationing with her family in 2007 captured the world’s attention. Now, more than 13 years later, there is a suspect in Germany who may have answers. Correspondent Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS investigate in “The Puzzle: Solving the Madeleine McCann Case” to be broadcast Saturday, Feb. 27 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    Madeleine McCann vanished from her bed one night while her family was on holiday at a beach resort in Praia da Luz, Portugal. McCann’s parents, British doctors Gerry and Kate McCann, had left their children sleeping in their hotel apartment to have dinner with friends 50 yards away. The friends took turns checking on each other’s children approximately every 15 minutes. When Kate McCann’s turn came, she discovered Madeleine was gone.
    “It’s every parent’s nightmare, isn’t it?” BBC anchor Jane Hill tells Van Sant.
    The case, which Van Sant and 48 HOURS have been covering since 2007, made international headlines and launched a massive search and multinational investigation. Years passed with no answers. And then in June 2020, German authorities announced they had a suspect, who they said was a sex offender with several previous convictions. The suspect’s name is Christian Brueckner.
    “He absolutely matches the profile of a person who could potentially abduct and or kill a little girl like Madeleine McCann,” says Mark Hofmann, a Germany-based crime and intelligence analyst.
    “His cellphone was tracked at the crime scene or at least next to the crime scene the night Maddie disappeared,” Hofmann says
    48 HOURS: “The Puzzle: Solving the Madeleine McCann Case” takes viewers inside the investigation and features interviews with the German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters, intelligence and crime experts, and more.
    The Madeleine McCann mystery has been compared to a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces to solve. Is the arrest of Christian Brueckner the key to solving the case and finally solving the mystery of what happened to Madeleine McCann?
    “It’s when you put those things together that you get that clear focus where the jigsaw becomes much, much more complete,” says Jim Gamble, the former head of the United Kingdom’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.
    “For the first time in 13 years, I have to say … I actually feel here is a credible suspect,” says Gamble.
    48 HOURS: “The Puzzle: Solving the Madeleine McCann Case” is produced by Chris Young Ritzen, Josh Gelman, and Anthony Venditti. Anna Noryskiewicz and Paolo Marenghi are the field producers. Michael Baluzy, Gary Winter and Greg Kaplan are the editors. Lourdes Aguiar is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

    In an exclusive interview with Dateline NBC, former NXIVM member Dr. Danielle Roberts defended branding members of the alleged sex cult, telling NBC News’ Kate Snow that she was not acting as a doctor during the branding but as a member of a social group. She explained: “These women didn’t come to me because they thought I was a doctor. They had no idea who the branding technician was going to be, you know? There was no patient-physician relationship.”
    To watch the exchange, click here.
    When pressed by Snow about inflicting pain on members and her oath as a doctor, Roberts responded, “I think pain and harm are two different things.” Roberts, an osteopathic doctor, has never been charged but her license is under review. The interview is part of a special two-hour Dateline NBC, entitled Collateral Damage, airing this Friday at 9pm ET/8pm CT.
    Friday’s special also reveals new details about NXIVM, including interviews with former member India Oxenberg and her mother Catherine, who open up about how they are doing since the group’s founder Keith Raniere was convicted of felonies including racketeering, sex trafficking and forced labor.

From prison, Raniere denies being the mastermind behind the branding, telling Dateline: “If you look at my long-term partners, I’m even against tattooing. I don’t have tattoos. None of my partners have tattoos. If my partners want to get them, that’s up to them.”

Primetime DVD Review: “Lucy Worsley’s Royal Myths And Secrets, Vol. 1”

DVD Review!

Lucy Worsley's Royal Myths And Secrets, Vol. 1 DVD cover

“Lucy Worsley’s Royal Myths And Secrets, Vol. 1” Review by Suzanne 2/20/21

This is a very fun series. Entertainer and historian Lucy Worsley hosts this look at various historical events involving British royalty. She uses historical places and things that still exist, costumes, actors to re-enact events, humorous language and more to make the history really come alive. She not only talks about history, but she gives her own spin on the events and what she thinks really happened, based on historical investigation.

I’ve never really cared much about history, but this series is entertaining and educational. All history should be taught this way. For that matter, everything should be taught this way. Learning should be fun and entertaining. Make sure you don’t miss this series, whether you enjoy history or not.

My only complaint is that there is no closed captioning nor any features or extras.

Discover the Legacy and Impact of 3 of Europe’s Most Iconic Queens

This program is part of PBS’ summer-long celebration of women trailblazers!

Rediscover the true stories behind three of history’s most remarkable queens and their roles in historical events on the three-part series LUCY WORSLEY’S ROYAL MYTHS & SECRETS. Lucy Worsley, chief curator of the Historic Royal Palaces, travels across Britain and Europe visiting the incredible locations — beautiful palaces, castles and dramatic battlefields — where royal history was made.

Throughout, Worsley investigates how royal history is a mixture of facts, exaggeration, manipulation and mythology.

Notable women and their roles in historical events are featured: Elizabeth I and the Spanish Armada, Queen Anne and the Formation of Great Britain, and Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution.

These three women helped forge the Europe we know today, but Worsley explains how their stories are riddled with inaccuracies.

  • Was Elizabeth I’s defeat of the Spanish Armada really a David and Goliath triumph, or is that one of England’s greatest myths?
  • How did rumors about Queen Anne’s love life and physical weaknesses overshadow her role in forging Great Britain?
  • Did Marie Antoinette actually say “Let them eat cake!” and ignite the French Revolution?

Worsley reveals how history is thought of as a definitive truth about the past, but is often misrepresented through rumor, speculation and sometimes outright lies.

“History is a chorus of voices, each of them shouting out its own version of the story,” Worsley observes in the series. “Very often, it’s the loudest voices that get heard most clearly.”

EPISODE GUIDE:

Episode 1: “Elizabeth I: The Warrior Queen” airs Sunday, June 21 at 8 p.m. – Join Lucy Worsley for an exploration of how Elizabeth I’s image as a warrior queen, created by a series of myths and secrets about her victory over the Spanish Armada, shaped British national identity for centuries.

Episode 2: “Queen Anne: The Mother of Great Britain” airs Sunday, June 28 at 8 p.m. – Investigate why Queen Anne’s powerful role in the forging of Great Britain has often been forgotten. Lucy Worsley shares the inside story of the salacious gossip about Anne’s love life that helped destroy her image and legacy.

Episode 3: “Marie Antoinette: The Doomed Queen” airs Sunday, July 5 at 8 p.m. – Find out why Marie Antoinette is often blamed for causing the French Revolution by saying “let them eat cake” to her starving subjects. Lucy Worsley uncovers the myths and secrets that led the doomed queen to the guillotine.

Interview with Leslie Lehr

TV Interview!

Leslie Lehr, author of "A Boob's Life: How America's Obsession Shaped Me―and You"

Interview with author Leslie Lehr of “A Boob’s Life: How America’s Obsession Shaped Me―and You” (soon to be a TV series on HBO Max) by Suzanne 2/11/21

It was so great to speak with Leslie! We had a fun chat.  Salma Hayek will be making her book into a TV series for HBO Max. As you can tell from the interview, she is quite passionate about her book. I haven’t read it yet, but it sounds great.

We started out talking about the weather because it’s been very cold here in Arkansas (and this was before we got a foot of snow!).

Suzanne: It doesn’t usually get or stay this cold like it’s been lately.

Leslie: Oh no, I’m so sorry. Well, you have to come visit me when the pandemic is over.

Suzanne: Yeah. Where are you located?

Leslie: I’m in California.

Suzanne: I’m actually from San Diego, so it kind of ruined me for living anywhere else.

Leslie: San Diego is like always 42 degrees; it’s perfect. How did you get from San Diego to Arkansas?

Suzanne: Well, I moved around a lot for my husband’s jobs. I haven’t actually lived in San Diego since 1982.

Leslie: Oh, I was there then.

Suzanne: Oh, yeah?

Leslie: Yeah. Oh, my gosh.

Suzanne: Are you from there?

Leslie: No, I changed colleges a couple times and went down there for a year. It was the best place I’ve ever lived, for sure.

Suzanne: Yeah, it’s nice. Which college did you go to down there?

Leslie: Actually, I came from Ohio. I was mad at my dad. If you have the book, you’ll see; I used my boobs to get out of going and then came to California.

So, I started at UCLA, and I ended up at USC film school, but in between, I took a quarter off and then moved to San Diego with a boyfriend and then ended up going to San Diego State for, I guess, maybe a year, not quite a year probably. I lived on the beach, and it was fabulous.

Suzanne: Oh, that’s nice.

Leslie: And I went back up to LA for film school.

Suzanne: My husband went to State briefly, and he ended up going to UCSD and graduated from there.

Leslie: There’re some great schools down there. San Diego State, actually, they had one of the big, you know, women in film study things that was after me, but I definitely took some great classes there. It’s known as a party school, but they had a great telecommunications [department]. Although this one TV teacher, I remember he said, “You’re never going to make it, blah, blah, blah. So, that was the day I applied to film school and went back to LA. It’s like, this guy’s a loser; I’m out.

Suzanne: Oh, no.  Did you have a house on the beach?

Leslie: I shared an apartment with three other girls on the beach. Actually, there’s a story in the book…two had really big boobs. One had really big boobs and then got a reduction…It was on Mission Beach. That was so nice.

Now I’ve been down there, because my daughter lived there a little bit a couple of years ago. She lived there for a year. Now it’s all bars and restaurants. In ‘82 certainly it was much more of a little beach town.

Suzanne: Yeah, that whole Southern California area has has been built up so much over the last twenty, thirty years.

Leslie: Yeah, it’s kind of sad, because you can’t get a new beach place. I remember, Hooters was just being built when I left. It might have been there when you were there. No, it’s this big giant double decker bar.

Suzanne: Actually, speaking of both boobs and warm weather, before we lived here, we lived in Honolulu for three years.

Leslie: Oh, my gosh. Wow.

Suzanne: It was very expensive, but they paid my husband well, fortunately. But we used to go down to the Hooters – we lived downtown near Chinatown – it was the only sports bar in the area, and if you wanted to watch mainland sports, you had to go really early in the morning…They served breakfast and stuff.

Leslie: Did the girls with the low cut tops serve breakfast, or did they have different uniforms then?

Suzanne: No, I think they served breakfast. I think they wore the same thing. It was it was funny, because it was a lot of his students.

Leslie: Oh, great! [laughs]

Suzanne: You can’t really leer at your students! Not that he’s the leering type anyway…

Leslie: That’s so funny. Did you just wear a bikini the whole time you were there?

Suzanne: No, I’m not a bikini type.

Leslie: Yeah, I like one pieces too.

Suzanne: It’s funny, even though I grew up in San Diego and lived in Hawaii, I did not go in the ocean or the water that much.

Leslie: Those are probably the two places in the country that aren’t totally shark infested like Florida, and the water’s warm. If you’re not going to go in there, then you’re just not going to go in.

Suzanne: I love the ocean. I like the beach. I just like having it there more than actually going in.

Leslie: I hear you. I was a swimmer, and I live about a mile and a half from the beach now, and I go down and I always think, “Oh, I’m gonna go swimming.” I see people swimming, and I was just curious all my life, but I really don’t want to be in the water as much as I want to look at it. So, I hear you. I like to walk and look at the ocean and look at the dolphins. When you’re under water, you can’t really see much.

Suzanne: Yeah, and we used to like going down to Waikiki and sitting in an nice outdoor bar having dinner and drinks, listening to the ocean and that kind of thing.

Leslie: Exactly. My mom loves the Pink Hotel.

Suzanne: Oh, yeah, it’s crazy.

Leslie: That’s where she wants to be, her ashes scattered when she dies. It’s like, “Okay, mom. That’s fine we’ll do that; we can do that.” [laughs]

Suzanne: If you ever get back there, there’s a great restaurant called Top of Waikiki. It’s got a revolving restaurant, and it looks right down on all of that. It’s beautiful from up there.

Leslie: Oh my gosh. Well, as soon as the pandemic’s over, I’ll put that on the top of my list.

Suzanne: I mean, I’m not saying it’s a great restaurant food-wise. It’s okay food-wise.

Leslie: They probably have good pu-pu. We went to place that was named Dukes. That was near the Pink Hotel. Oh, man, now, I really want to go on vacation.

Suzanne: I know what you mean. I’ve wanted to go back there ever since we moved here.

Leslie: Yeah. Well, you would think he would want to do that too, just to visit.

Suzanne: Yeah, he does. It’s just… he’s an administrator, so finding the time to go back there, especially now with the pandemic, of course…it’s crazy.

Leslie: Of course, yeah.

Suzanne: We probably would have gone if not for the pandemic this year.

Leslie: We actually went to [Hawaii] last February. I had been working on the book, and my husband is also a writer, and we were so busy we didn’t go anywhere during holidays at all. So, we went on a vacation around Valentine’s Day but not actually on it; it’s too expensive then. So, we were lucky to have been in Hawaii right before the [pandemic]. Now we’ve been home, and I was like, “Thank God, at least went on a vacation.”

Suzanne: Yeah.

Leslie: We were on the Big Island, I think.

Suzanne: Oh, that’s nice. Yeah, actually we never went to the Big Island, [laughs] but we were only there three years, you know?

Leslie: Three years is a lot, though.

Suzanne: You would think. I don’t know. It’s island time; that’s different.

Leslie: That’s true. There’s a Thai restaurant. In fact, I say to my husband, “We need to get take out [from] this Thai restaurant,” and it’s a little bit of a drive that even with the pandemic, you go, you pick up your boxes, and they have a TV that, I don’t know why, but it only plays a surf channel. It’s always so relaxing. It’s people surfing in Hawaii. They have it on a loop. It’s so fun to watch.

Pre-Order Leslie’s Book here!

Suzanne: That is cool.   When did you decide to write this book, and how long did it take you?

Leslie: I actually had no intention of ever writing a book about boobs, until the moment I realized that I could track my whole life by how I felt about my boobs, and I wasn’t the only one.

I mean, every morning, every woman gets up and has to do something with their boobs. It’s a pretty common experience, but I got out the shower one night, and my boobs were crooked, and I was so mad. We had just moved to this really cool place, and we were going to have a date night. There were still boxes and everywhere. I was a couple years out of breast cancer, which was horrific. I’d had my boobs redone a bunch of times, and they were so crooked. I was so mad that my husband accused me of being obsessed. I thought, “No way, I’m a girl. No way could I be obsessed with breasts; that’s just wrong.” So, he said, “Just calm down.” I wanted to call my plastic surgeon and [be] like, “Fix them,” which kind of troubled me, that I felt like that, because I’d always considered myself a feminist.

Then, he had taped the last week of David David Letterman’s The Late Show, and David Letterman had all these stars on. I mean, he was this famous guy, thirty eight years on TV, and he was known as the intellectual guy. So, what does he do on one of the most watched episodes of his entire TV career? He tells a big joke.

So, my husband and I looked at each other, and it was like, “I am not the only one who’s obsessed.” This is totally not my fault, but it was really troubling. And date night was off. He went to sleep.

I started unpacking boxes, and I saw this picture of one of my favorite pictures I had. It was the first one I took out. It’s this old picture. It’s actually in the book, and it’s of me and my sister and my mom. I was three, and we’re all wearing red bikinis, and for me and my sister, who was one, there are these tiny red strips of fabric. I remember, I always laugh and look at the picture, because my sister could not keep the fabric [covering] her nipple, because she was, you know, one or something, but I thought it was the funniest thing. Then I realized, “Oh, my gosh, at three years old, I knew that nipples were taboo,” and that said something about the culture.

So, I kind of was like being a detective. First of all, I wanted to prove to my husband, A, that I wasn’t obsessed, or B, that it was okay, because everyone was obsessed, and then I wanted to know why. So, I went through, and I did a whole lot of research and went through my whole life, and I realized that I could connect all the dots of my life from when I was a little girl wanting breasts, a teenage girl wanting bigger breasts to be a cheerleader. My dad had Playboy. Then in college, you know, having breasts meant you were pretty. Then, if you then went [to get] a job, you had to hide your breasts to look professional, you know, and then having a babies and getting big breasts that were gorgeous for breastfeeding, and then having them so ugly and saggy that my mom called me deformed. After I got a divorce, she wanted me to get a boob job, because she thought I’d be lonely without breasts. Then eventually, I got a new job a couple years later, completely unrelated, and I did feel more confident, because that’s how the culture was. It really did make me feel more like a woman.

Then I got breast cancer, and it’s like I did all this, and still they weren’t perfect. And I realized that 300,000 women a year get breast augmentation. It’s the most popular elective surgeries. The same amount of women get breast cancer every year. It’s like, breasts can feed our babies; they can kill us. I could see my whole life now, as according to my breasts.

I looked for other books that covered this. I mean, breasts literally turn blood into milk, and there is not a medical specialty. Here in Oregon, by definition, there’s no medical specialty about breasts. There are books on breast cancer, books on breastfeeding, and, of course, if you google “boobs,” you’ll find porn. If you google “breasts,” you find cancer and chicken recipes. Seriously, I could not believe it, but there was no book that connected the dots.

Then I realized that my life – because I was born right at the edge of 1960, and my life completely parallels the moment when breasts became exponentially important for men and not for babies. It had to do with this historical thing of like – I mean, this is probably too much detail for you, but women had to go back to the kitchen. There had been child care during World War Two, and then [Uncle Sam] closed them. Then suddenly, the sciences were pushing baby formula, so, women weren’t using them for breastfeeding.

Then, Playboy came out that same year, so advertising rose. TV suddenly was in everyone’s homes. Those were the couple years where TV overnight was in everyone’s homes. A man’s eyes – I found the scientific research – look at a woman’s chest within two hundred milliseconds of her walking into the room. So, for advertising eyeballs, of course they’re gonna have women with big breasts on TV, and so we were raised in this culture.

Then the society plastic surgeon said small breasts were diseased. Suddenly, women, actresses had to be in Playboy; Victoria’s Secret came up later. Even beauty queens, everyone had big breasts.

So, my life really paralleled this culture of breast obsession, and since America really sets the tone media-wise for the rest of the world, we were influencing everyone. My life at every stage had been influenced by the songs and the commercials and the news and the fashion and the censorship.

So, that night I like was like, “This is my next book.” I never intended to write about boobs or ever intended to write a memoir. I mean, I’m a novelist; I’d written some screenplays.

And honestly, I wasn’t sure after chemo that I would be able to write another book. My analytic side came back really easily. I was working with other writers, I taught stuff, and that side, my brain was great, but creatively, it just wasn’t flowing for a long time. I was on meds for years, and suddenly, this idea was just fully formed in my head; like I had to write this book.

So, I actually started it when we thought Hillary was going to be president and kind of thought, “Oh, this is so important,” and then that didn’t happen. And I pitched the book, and nobody wanted it. Everyone was was like, “Oh, breasts aren’t important.” It was so, insidious, I guess is the word. We take breasts for granted that we don’t realize how much they affect our whole lives and men’s lives, too.

We all get into these roles, and especially now with a pandemic, women are like, “Our breasts definitely are defining us.” It’s harder to work. If we have children, we need childcare. We’re not taking care of ourselves, because we’re taking care of everyone else. We’re getting sick. So, it just told this bigger story.

I actually started the book in 2016, and then I wrote a query, and I wrote a proposal, and they didn’t sell. Then finally, I read the whole book, and I thought, TV. I got interest from a producer, actually, pretty early on, when somebody read the manuscript, but it still didn’t rate; it still didn’t sell this book. I mean, I had so many rejections. Now, I’m getting these rave reviews from publishers weekly; [unintelligible] is like the holy grail of the book industry.

The problem was too, it’s a memoir, but it has cultural analysis. I’m using my life, my personal emotional experience, in relation to the wider lens of our nation with a lot of humor and a lot of research. It shows the power of biology is something we can’t change, but also the way we react to it, that we can kind of change the culture. So, it was kind of unusual. It wasn’t like strictly memoir, and I’m certainly not a celebrity. So, who would buy it, right? And now, those are the very things about the book that people are really praising, and it’s just thrilling.

I just had so many moments of doubt, like, “Oh, maybe it’s not a book.” But it’s clearly a book, and now, obviously, it’s going to be a TV show. I couldn’t be more thrilled to get this message out for everyone to stop judging ourselves and each other and understand what the realities are about living in a woman’s body and how it affects everybody.

Suzanne: So, even though you’d already gotten books published, it didn’t matter. They didn’t want this.

Leslie: Yeah. They were like, “Oh, Leslie’s such a great writer, but this is not for us.” I just hope all those people are watching now! [laughs] Not in a mean way, just be more open minded, because people are calling this a really important book.

There’re really only five big publishing houses, and there’re lots of imprints, and they have to sell sure things. They need a sure thing, and this was kind of an unusual book, and boobs are like, “eww.” I mean, I even lost my first agent. She said she just wasn’t a boob person, and I thought, “That’s how important this book is, because you’re in denial that this is really important.” She’s smart, she actually had gotten an offer to go to a bigger agency and handle people like Kamala Harris…bigger people. But I got a new agent immediately and totally understood.

Then, it was just a challenge, because people just take boobs for granted. Yet every morning, we get up and we decide, are we wearing a bra or a sports bra? Are we showing them? Are we not? Are we wearing no bra? [unintelligible] So, they are a big deal, and that’s what I’m just thrilled about, that that’s a real thing now.

Suzanne: You know, I never really thought about any of this before. I guess, I don’t really think about it.

Leslie: Exactly, nobody does. Honestly, I would not have, and my whole life – like all my friends from high school – I grew up in Ohio – they’re all like, “Oh, Leslie, boobs.” You know, it’s it’s like, “Yeah, well…” Didn’t mean it.

There’s serious stuff in this too, but there’s plenty of humor, because boobs are funny, and that’s why I didn’t name it A Breast’s Life. It’s like, why so serious? Boobs are funny, and yet they’re the same thing. And then, Oprah Winfrey calls them “The Girls.” We objectify our own bodies. It’s really interesting.

So, that’s my point, for regular great women like you who just don’t think about boobs: we take them for granted. So, I’m just trying to say, “Hey, the way we think about boobs affects how we live.”

Suzanne: Somewhere I read you said that you had wanted bigger boobs when you were younger. Was that because you just hadn’t matured yet, or did you think you had ones that were too small?

Leslie: Both. I used to watch we watch Miss America every year, and I would put socks in my little bathing suit, parade around like Miss America with a towel and my cape and a tinfoil crown. I wanted to be beautiful.

I have the statistics in my book; I have all these kind of pages of facts in between the chapters, and one is about Miss America and Miss USA beauty pageants. By 1999, so many beauty queens, entrants of Miss USA particularly, the majority of them had breast implants. I mean, it’s a big deal. Breasts are important.

When I was little, I was just dying to get a bra, and then suddenly, when I was big enough to get a bra, it was Vietnam and women’s lib, and if you had to not wear a bra to be against the war – I was like, “Okay, now my breasts are political. I want to wear a bra, but I don’t want boys to get killed.”

It’s like breasts meant everything, and then they weren’t big enough. The boy I liked, you know, my best friend had big boobs, and I was sure he was gonna ask her to the dance. He asked me, and I was like, “Why me?” She had the big boobs.

You know, boobs were really important. Cheerleaders had big boobs, and I wanted bigger ones. Then when I had babies, I had giant ones, and then, it was great, but then there were the babies, and then I was just completely flat.

And you had to pretend you didn’t have boobs to get a job, wear suit coats and those shirts with floppy bows. I always wondered what it would be like to have really nice, not like giant boobs, because here’s the thing: if you have giant boobs, then you’re a bimbo, and I didn’t want to be a bimbo. I mean, we definitely judge women by how big or smaller boobs are. I didn’t realize – I did an interview the other day and someone said, “Well, of course you got breast cancer, because you’re all about boobs.” I was like, “No, no, no, no, no.”

Suzanne: Really?

Leslie: Yeah, exactly. Why?

I had no idea that my life had any through-line about boobs until I actually sat down and thought about that night, when I was like, “Why do I care so much? Why do I want to fix my boobs? Are they broken? What does that mean?” When I have a body part that I think is broken, what does that mean?

Suzanne: Did your mom at all – and I’m not saying you should blame her, but what was her attitude about boobs? Did she influence you at all?

Leslie: My mom was beautiful. She also got a PhD while I was in elementary school, and she worked for Planned Parenthood. My mom was totally smart and pretty. She was the whole package, and yet my dad cheated on her with girlfriends with big boobs. He married several women with big boobs who were not as smart as my mom. My mom was raised in the 50s, and it was really important to be beautiful, and being smart didn’t help her keep her husband. That was part of a woman’s identity then, and she was really affected by the culture as well. She still to this day feels that beauty is really important. She gives both my daughters a little allowance each month – my daughters are now in their late twenties – to get their hair done or their nails or something, because how we present to the world is how we are judged from the world. I hate that, and yet I acknowledge it as a truth.

So, she felt like when I got divorced, I had really saggy little boobs; my nipples pointed down…I wore a camisole all the time; I never took off, and when she saw me, she first thought, “Men like boobs, and you’re going to be lonely, because nobody wants to look at that.” It was because she never nursed, and her mother also was gorgeous and very well built, and my mom still had great boobs.

It was like she just wanted me to have every advantage, and as a woman, being smart isn’t the whole advantage. I mean, you have to be pretty too. It used to be you were smart or pretty, but nowadays, I feel like the new generation who is having more opportunity, they have to be smart and pretty.

Even this whole body positivity movement is fabulous, but I think it’s bigger in the media than it is in real life, and it’s gonna take a long time for real life to catch up. I think men look at women, and it’s just biological imperative. If you want someone who can give you children, whether you’re consciously aware of that or not, that’s the biology of it. A woman with a curvy figure and big hips can have babies, boobs, you know, make milk. So, part of it is valid, you can’t fight that. So, what I want is for people to just be aware of it, so that we stop being hard on ourselves, and we stop judging other people. I think I feel like when we know better, we do better, and that’s my message, I guess.

Suzanne: That makes sense. And now it’s being turned into a TV series?

Leslie: Yeah. The pilot’s being written now, and I’m executive producer, so I’ll have some say on who plays Leslie, but Salma Hayek is just this genius producer. I really feel like she and Dolly Parton have the biggest boob power in the world. They they use their boobs for good, because people love their boobs, and they use their power, because they are brilliant women, and Salma Hayek is a genius. I mean, we see her for her movies, but she produced Frida; she was executive producer of Ugly Betty. She has this huge Spanish language hit called Monarca. She has so many projects, and she’s such a humanitarian, and we don’t hear this part of it, because it’s kind of unusual; she’s doesn’t get acknowledged for it. I think she got an Emmy for something and then didn’t work for a while; after she produced or directed something. It’s like, people like the boob part, but she’s really, really smart.

And she told me that she’s obsessed with my book, and she has a first look deal at HBO Max, and they are making it into a TV series. It’s going to be a comedy, and yet, it’s going to be about the reality of living in a woman’s body. After talking to her, I completely trust her. It won’t be exactly the same as the book, and it also will take a long time, especially with this pandemic, until it happens.

So, I really want people to read the book. There’s tons more in the book, and there’s sixteen pages of pictures and six pages of footnotes, and a lot of funny stories that won’t be in the [series]. The [series] will start present day, and then we’ll have some flashbacks, and hopefully they’ll cover everything in many seasons. Also, I have two daughters. It might be a daughter and a son. They’re going to do what’s best to make it a really great show. So, I’m thrilled, and really excited about that.

Suzanne: When do you think the pilot’s going to be finished? Do they have an idea yet?

Leslie: Right now it’s just being written. Then, I get to read it, and the other producers get to read it. It goes back and forth for a while until it gets approved and then has to be greenlit for the series. So, it’s a long process, just like the book. It’s been five years since I started this book. It won’t take that long for this TV show; I’m guessing like a year, so, anybody can really look forward to it. So, read the book, then you’ll get a preview for sure.

Suzanne: They’re a lot faster now making a series and I think, because of the pandemic, they got really fast. They’re churning out things now.

Leslie: They had a lot in the pipeline, so they’re trying to get stuff out. It’s definitely difficult to shoot and to cast, and just the project, the process of actually making TV, takes a long time, because there’re so many people and so many steps involved and so much money involved. So, she’s going to be very careful and make sure that this is a good show that can last a long time. So, they’re not going to rush it out.

Suzanne: Oh, no, I didn’t mean rush in a bad way. I just meant, they’ve gotten much more efficient, because they had a time crunch. Just from some of the interviews I’ve been on lately, I’ve been hearing about that. Yesterday, actually, HBO Max had a whole day for the TCA online, and one of the shows, they’re saying normally they have a whole week to shoot an episode, and they did this only two days per episode, which is really cool.

Leslie: Yes. That’s just because of getting everyone in the room healthy; they only have so much time. So, that is a really tricky thing.

Suzanne: Some of these movies they do on TV, like Lifetime and everything, they’ve got them so fast now. They’ve got it down to a fine art.

Leslie: Well, that’d be great. I’m looking forward to seeing who they get to play me.

Suzanne: I’ll bet; that would be exciting.

Leslie: Yeah, and they’re using my name, too. I was thinking last night, “Do I want to switch the name?” Then again, it is my story. It will be fictionalized; it’s not really me. I don’t know; we’ll see.

Fingers crossed. I hope it happens for me. Just right now, I really want people to [read the book]. The book comes out in two weeks. I don’t know when you’re going to publish this, but I definitely want people to preorder. I think the success of the book also will help the success of the TV show. For me, it will help me keep writing. Also, there’s just so much in the book that I’m not sure what all will be in the TV show, but I know it’ll be good.

Suzanne: So, right now you’re just working on helping out with the TV show? You haven’t started writing another book or thinking about another book?

Leslie: Well, I’m waiting until I see the pilot script, and then I’ll be working with the TV show, but I’m definitely working on another book. And right now, I’m trying to do my best to help people get the message of A Boob’s Life and understand to love your boobs and all that. So, I’ll be busy with this book for a while, but I definitely am working on another book, which has some similar themes, but it’s a novel. Hopefully, I’ll finish that and take few months. I mean, I’m a very careful writer; I’m a very craft oriented writer, so it needs to be really good for me to show it to anyone, so it’ll be a little bit, but I’m on the third draft of it.

Here is the audio version of it.

From her prize-winning fiction to her viral New York Times Modern Love essay, exploring the challenges facing contemporary women has been author Leslie Lehr‘s life-long passion. In her upcoming book, A Boob’s Life: How America’s Obsession Shaped Me – and You (March 2nd, 2020; pre-order here), her first project since breast cancer treatment, she continues this mission, taking readers on a wildly informative, deeply personal, and utterly relatable journey.

No matter your gender, you’ll never view this sexy and sacred body part the same way again. The book has already caught the attention of the literary and entertainment industries alike. We would love to set up an interview with you and the author to discuss the book timed to Breast Cancer Awareness month next month.
“As women we are always asking ourselves, are we enough? Leslie Lehr‘s witty, wise, and sometimes heartbreaking memoirs, A Boob’s Life, uses our relationship with breasts, and the ways others define us through them, to explore what it means to live in a woman’s body. Original, thought-provoking, and with an elegant sense of humor, A Boob’s Life is a must-read.”

Author Leslie Lehr wants to talk about boobs. She’s gone from size AA to DDD and everything between, from puberty to motherhood, enhancement to cancer, and beyond. And she’s not alone-these are classic life stages for women today. A Boob’s Life explores the surprising truth about women’s most popular body part with vulnerable, witty frankness and true nuggets of American culture that will resonate with everyone who has breasts-or loves them. At turns funny and heartbreaking, A Boob’s Life explores both the joys and hazards inherent to living in a woman’s body. Lehr deftly blends her personal narrative with national history, starting in the 1960s with the women’s liberation movement and moving to the current feminist dialogue and what it means to be a woman. Her insightful and clever writing analyzes how America’s obsession with the female form has affected her own life’s journey and the psyche of all women today. Lehr explores the duality of today’s women to navigate a new path between sexy and sacred.

Finn tells her that he loves her too much to walk away. She urges him to “let it out.” He’s very angry at the results, and at himself, but not at her. Steffy tells him tearfully that he would have called the baby “John Finnegan, jr.” if it was a boy. She tells him that their love will get them through this.

  • Lifetime THE LONG ISLAND SERIAL KILLER : A MOTHER’S HUNT FOR JUSTICE – Saturday, February 20 Show More
    The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island. After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Kim Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long. Joining Kim Delaney is Eugene Clark as private investigator “Herc” Zinneman. Promo

    Airing 2/20/21 (Saturday) (10:00 PM) DANIEL ANDERL LOST HIS LIFE HEROICALLY PROTECTING HIS PARENTS FROM A GUNMAN ON A RAMPAGE – HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS SAY HIS DEATH WILL NOT BE IN VAIN Preview
    “48 HOURS” GOES INSIDE THE INVESTIGATION OF WHO KILLED DANIEL ANDERL AND MARC ANGELUCCI IN “THE DELIVERYMAN MURDERS”
    Daniel Anderl, the son of prominent federal Judge Esther Salas and attorney, Mark Anderl, was shot dead while heroically trying to save his parents from a man who went to the door of their New Jersey home armed with a gun posing as a deliveryman. Now, his family and friends say his death won’t be in vain.
    Days earlier an attorney was gunned down in an identical killing in California.
    Correspondent Tracy Smith and 48 HOURS investigate the connection between the murder of Anderl and Marc Angelucci, who died 2,800 miles away in the mountains of San Bernardino, in “The Deliveryman Murders” to be broadcast Saturday, Feb. 20 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
    “I have direct evidence that he died heroically, that he had a holy death,” says David Oakley, Daniel Anderl’s godfather and a family friend. “And, so, I have no hesitation about praying to Daniel. And I have been.”
    The two murders captured the nation’s attention because they involved the family of a federal judge and a high-profile attorney and each involved a killer impersonating a deliveryman. The murders happened just eight days apart.
    Smith and 48 HOURS report on the murders through interviews with friends of Daniel Anderl and a close friend of Angelucci, investigators and more. The broadcast also pieces together the events of the weekend of Daniel Anderl’s death, when he celebrated his birthday with his family and close friends.
    “There is nobody else I know that would do something like that, except for Dan, to sacrifice his own life to save someone else,” says Kat Haley, one of Anderl’s friends.
    “I have never met a kid who speaks more highly of his parents,” says Haley. “He, his mom and his dad, were his best friends in the world and he would let you know that.”
    Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the friends didn’t get a chance to see each other in person that often. But the weekend of his 20th birthday bought them together.
    “We were just so happy to all finally see each other. It was incredible,” says Haley.
    They had no sense how bittersweet that time together – and their goodbyes – would become.
    “He was like, ‘I love you,’” says friend Matthew Zeigler. “I said, ‘I love you, too.’ And that was kind of the last conversation we ended up having.”
    Judge Esther Salas, in a video she released online, said the weekend was a glorious one.
    “We were chatting, as we always do,” Salas says in the video. “And Daniel said, ‘Mom, let’s keep talking. I love talking to you, Mom.’ It was that exact moment that the doorbell rang.”
    What happened next ended Daniel Anderl’s life. The gunman shot his father Mark Anderl three times.
    Investigators would later link the two crimes to one killer: Roy Den Hollander, a 72-year-old attorney with extreme views on men’s rights. Investigators say he held grievances against Angelucci and Judge Salas. Den Hollander was later found in the Catskill Mountains of New York with a fatal, self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.
    Judge Salas believes the free flow of information on the Internet made it easy to find her personal details. She pushed for legislation to change that and in November 2020 Daniel’s Law was signed by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. A similar bill was introduced in Congress last year.
    “I am profoundly moved by seeing how Mark and Esther are dealing with this unspeakable event,” says Oakley. “They’ve turned this into something positive for others. These guys are unbroken.”

Interview with Alan Tudyk

TV Interview!

Alan Tudyk, star of "Devil May Care"

Interview with Alan Tudyk of “Devil May Care” on Syfy by Suzanne 2/2/21

This is a fun animated show. Tudyk does a great take on this kinder, gentler Satan.  It was very nice to speak with him! It was only four minutes – part of a longer interview I did with him. He’s one of the few people to have two shows on Syfy at the same time!

Here is the audio version of it, or you can hear the entire interview here.

Suzanne: Hi, Alan, how are you?

Alan: Hey, how you doing?

Suzanne: Oh, good.

Alan: I’m great.

Suzanne: I’m a huge. I’m a huge fan of yours ever since Firefly.

Alan: Thank you very much.

Suzanne: They wanted me to [ask you about] “Devil May Care.”

Alan: Devil May Care. It’s on the TZGZ Syfy midnight animation block. I don’t know what TZGZ stands for.

Suzanne: I don’t either.

Alan: Has anybody has told anybody? I think it just sounds good together, and it’s for some reason memorable. I’m the devil –

Suzanne: Was it fun developing the voice for the devil?

Alan: Yeah, you know, he’s similar to a character I played in Knocked Up for a head of an Entertainment Tonight or Weekly type executive or something like that, which seems appropriate. [laughs] “Come on, be a team leader! “That’s the way the devil is different in this show.

Suzanne: He’s not evil sounding.

Alan: He’s not evil – not sounding, and not even in the way he goes about running Hell. He’s trying to gentrify Hell. He wants it to be a place where you can go and have a good time. He just happens to be the angel that got put in charge of Hell is the thing.

Suzanne: How many total episodes are there for Devil May Care?

Alan: That’s a good question.

Suzanne: Oh, you don’t know? It’s okay.

Alan: [laughs] I think it’s eight. Yeah, eight ten, but only like fifteen-minute episodes. It’s got like an Adult Swim type feel to the shows…It’s crazy.

Suzanne: It was fun to recognize Louis Black in the first episode. Are there a lot of recognizable guest star voices in the other episodes?

Alan: Yes, there’s somebody else that I was stoked that we got, but I didn’t know that we got Louis until I saw the episode, because, again, this was all very pandemic in the way we recorded it. So, you can you can record whole things and never meet another person. You’re able to talk and meet and handshake, but it’s just that we haven’t been able to do [that]. I don’t know. I don’t have a list of who all is in the show, but yeah, Louis Black is a cool cat.

Suzanne: You do a lot of animated shows, do you have to turn down a lot of them, because you get so much animated voice work?

Alan: Yeah, I guess I’m choosy in my animated work. They’re pretty easy to do, as far as the time commitment and things like that, but, yeah, it kind of feels like when you’re spoiled. [laughs] I love tacos, and then you move to a neighborhood that has the best taco place and [someone’s] like, “You want a taco?” “From where?” I’m at the “from where?” place. “Who’s making the taco. What are the fixins?”

Suzanne: Thank you so much!

Alan: Thank you.

SYFY GREENLIGHTS NEW ANIMATED SERIES ‘DEVIL MAY CARE’ STARRING ALAN TUDYK FOR LATE-NIGHT ADULT ANIMATION BLOCK ‘TZGZ’

— Network Also Greenlights Three TZGZ Pilots —

NEW YORK, NY – June 15, 2020 – SYFY today announced new original projects for its late-night adult animation block, TZGZ, including a new original animated series and three original pilots. Airing on SYFY every Saturday at midnight-ish, TZGZ is a 90-minute block of adult comedic, animated, genre-based programming of varying lengths. Since its 2019 debut, TZGZ has grown +7% in the 18-49 demo vs prior year, and continues to bring younger viewers to the network.*

DEVIL MAY CARE, TZGZ’s second internally developed pilot greenlit to series, has earned a 7-episode series pickup. For the series, the Devil (Alan Tudyk, SYFY’s “Resident Alien”) hires a social media coordinator (Asif Ali, “BoJack Horseman”) to rebrand Hell as the ultimate place to live, and the two form the most unlikely of friendships. Recurring roles are played by Fred Tatasciore, Pamela Adlon and Stephanie Beatriz.

Created and executive produced by Douglas Goldstein (3x Emmy winner, “Robot Chicken”), this 15-minute series is developed and executive produced by Amanda Miller at PSYOP in partnership with Titmouse, the Emmy-award winning independent animation production company. Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski and Ben Kalina from Titmouse are also executive producers.

Additionally, SYFY has greenlit 3 pilots for TZGZ:

  • From ShadowMachine (“Final Space,” “BoJack Horseman”), CHRONICLES OF FRANK follows an overzealous squirrel that kidnaps an exterminator from the Bronx, transporting him to a magical realm where he must conquer the forces of evil and maybe win back his girlfriend. Ordered for a 15-minute pilot, CHRONICLES OF FRANK is created and executive produced by Chris Osbrink (Writer/Director, “Trip Tank,” Writer/Director, “Campus Law”), with ShadowMachine executive producers Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley.
  • In a galaxy far, far away there’s an epic war of the worlds where countless alien species will fight to the death – and THE BLACK HOLE is about the crappy dive bar where they drink. Picked up for a 15-minute pilot, THE BLACK HOLE from Starburns Industries (“Rick and Morty,” “Moral Orel”) is written and executive produced by Dino Stamatopoulos (Creator, “Moral Orel”) and Michael Waldron (Producer, “Rick and Morty”). Paul Young (EP, “Key & Peele”), James A Fino (EP, “Rick and Morty”), Duke Johnson (Director, “Anomalisa”) and Nick Weidenfeld (President of Programming, Viceland) also executive produce.
  • Heavy is the belly that wears the suit in THE POLE, a twisted, edgy comedy about the struggle for power on the North Pole. From Yeti Farm Creative (“Hotel Transylvania” Season 2, “Pete the Cat” Season 2), THE POLE has been ordered for a 15-minute pilot. Created and executive produced by Matthew Bass (Writer, “Future Man”) and Theodore Bressman (Writer, “Future Man,” Writer/EP, “Jungleland”). Mark Gordon (Producer, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Ray Donovan”) also executive produces, as well as Frank Saperstein and Jay Surridge from Yeti Farm Creative.
