The Televerse #27: Interview with Bill Persky
This week, Simon catches up with Spartacus and Kate has far too much to say about The Voice. After talking through a comedically satisfying and dramatically mixed week in TV, Simon and Kate briefly spotlight Archer’s latest, “Crossing Over”, before Kate interviews Bill Persky, creator of That Girl and five-time Emmy Award-winning writer, director, and producer. Bill talks about some of his experiences in the business, gives his thoughts on the state of network television, and discusses how the depictions of women on TV have changed over the years. Plus, some fun stories about George Carlin and Bing Crosby.
There’s a finale and a pilot in the mix as well, with Top Chef: Texas signing off and GCB starting up, not to mention fun episodes of Justified, Parks and Rec, The Amazing Race, and The Good Wife, along with Cougar Town, Suburgatory, Happy Endings, 30 Rock, An Idiot Abroad, Eastbound & Down, Luck, Lost Girl, and Smash.
