Mike Scully returns! Come for the tales of his early writing career (meeting the legendary Don Knotts on his first staff job, “What a Country”!), stay for the lessons in being within eyesight of a producer when another writer quits so you can take their job! Mike’s ascension of the Entertainment Industry ladder is riddled with mysterious tragedy — and you bet your sweet, sweet can we get into it. From working as an “Audience Hype Man” to feeling terrible for pranking unsuspecting bystanders in a failed hidden camera show. This episode has everything — including a sweet plug for Season 2 of “Duncanville” airing now on FOX every Sunday night!
This episode was recorded remotely during quarantine. You might notice differing audio quality from previous episodes (this one sounds like a zoom call … because it is!) – but we’re trying to make it work for you! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
