We’re back to business as usual in this month’s Dead Pilots Society episode. Our dead pilot is Sterling, written by Dan Sterling (The Sarah Silverman Program, The Office, Girls, South Park, The Interview, Long Shot). Sterling is about a TV news producer whose life is turned upside down when he is paired up with a beautiful, loose-cannon reporter. Andrew sat down with Dan to talk about his impressive career: Getting the job running The Daily Show after hitting it off with Jon Stewart at a Comedy Central Emmy Party, despite never having worked in late night…The decade long journey from his script Flarsky to Long Shot… Writing The Interview and getting caught in the middle of an international diplomatic firestorm, and why the writer is the only one who doesn’t get a bodyguard… How Sterling was partly inspired by his working relationship with Sarah Silverman… and much more!
