Scripted, Television, Unscripted

Ep 104: Nobody is Going to Do It for You.

In this episode, I break it down with my former colleague Jimmy Fox, President of three-time Emmy-winning Main Event Media, a Religion of Sports company, and executive producer of Netflix’s Dated and Related and Girl in the Picture, United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell, Peacock’s comedy series Punky Brewster, HBO Max’s Sweet Life: Los Angeles, and Discovery’s Shark Week among others. Jimmy is also a prolific podcaster, hosting Unscripted and Unprepared. 

Join us as Jimmy and I talk about how to move from producing unscripted to scripted, working for Ben Silverman, The Michael Kagans, network notes, and selling treadmills. From “House Hunters” to “Housewives,” we debate the greatest unscripted formats of all time and Jimmy explains his philosophy: “Nobody is going to do it for you.”
