Five Scoops of Bosco
Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz give Kim Masters their 'breaking in' story on The Business Radio Show this afternoon (2 PM PDT KCRW.com/ link via Bosco Radio in our side bar).
They met at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and came up through the ranks by way of writing jobs on shows including Felicity and Lost. But their education in the business began at the bottom. Kitsis was an assistant to the powerful and infamously difficult producers, Joel Silver and Scott Rudin, while Horowitz started in the mail room of a boutique agency. Now they've written the screenplay to Tron: Legacy and have a show on ABC, Once Upon a Time
Also on The Business today, John Sotos is a doctor who works on medical devices in Silicon Valley, but has also been a technical medical advisor to the Fox show House for five seasons. He talks about landing this job and his passion for reading about bizarre medical phenomena, his book, Zebra Cards: An Aid to Obscure Diagnosis, and how he'll miss working with the House writers when the show ends later this month.
The Business is the show about the business of show business. It goes beyond the glitz and glamour to the who, what, why and how of making movies and TV. The Business is hosted by respected entertainment industry journalist Kim Masters of the Hollywood Reporter and produced by KCRW radio in Santa Monica. Each week The Business features an analysis of top Hollywood news with John Horn of the Los Angeles Times, in-depth interviews and the occasional feature story.
