The Sitcom Room

09Aug07

It’s been said that actors should write, and writers should act. Not only for the experience of seeing the process from the other side, but also to see if you’re on the right side at all.

Ken Levine, an Emmy winning writer/director/producer/major league baseball announcer is also a blogger. Not only did this guy write for shows like M*A*S*H, Cheers, and Frasier, he also wrote for Wings!

Oh, those wacky Hacketts and their buddy, Lowell. I miss the 90s.

Ken’s blogging style is pretty fun to read. He breaks down the “movies become musicals then become movies of the musicals” phenomenon with Hairspray, remembers the passing of Los Angeles’ 93 KHJ disc jockey The Real Don Steele, and lists his all-time favorite comedy screenplays. Even a post about forever-hot Jane Seymour. Bonus points.

The coolest part, is Ken’s comedy writing fantasy camp know as The Sitcom Room. Collaborate. Write. See your script performed live. The first event sold out, but here’s hoping Ken does it again.
