Herbie J Pilato opens new consulting firm geared to classic re-dos


Remaking a classic TV show for the big screen or small?

Need to verify particular character or story mythologies?

Working on a classic TV documentary or any media-geared movie or production?

Need pop-culture research or writing assistance in general for any script, TV series or feature film in any genre?

Then contact Pop-Culture Consultants, a new entertainment consulting firm established by TVWriter’s very own Herbie J Pilato.

As the author of several classic TV companion books (such as Glamour, Gidgets and the Girl Next Door, The Bionic Book, The Kung Fu Book of Caine, Bewitched Forever, and Twitch Upon A Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery), Herbie J founded The Classic TV Preservation Society (a formal 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the celebration of classic television programming).  He has also served as the writer, producer and on-screen cultural commentator for a number of classic TV documentaries.  So, Pop-Culture Consultants is the natural extension of his career, prime-cut at a time when everything old is new again, and more popular (cultured!) than ever.

As Herbie J explains, “Pop-Culture Consultants works with film studios, TV networks, production companies and independent producers, writers and actors – with specific regard to nostalgia-oriented projects, including adaptations, reboots of classic TV shows as feature films, TV-movies, or new series altogether.  The firm also partners with entertainment professionals developing and producing documentaries for television, theatrical release, or for the ‘extras’ on various DVD releases of classic shows or motion pictures.  Clients include Warner Bros., Sony, Universal, Bravo, TLC, Syfy, and A&E, among others networks and studios, as well as individual production companies.”

Across the board, Pop-Culture Consultants clearly is the go-to new company for every intended remade-classic, and then some.  Whether for the big-screen or small, the live stage or the printed page…with original ideas or reimaginings of music, performance or the written word…in whichever selected creative venue, Pop-Culture Consultants helps to, as Herbie J puts it, “tell-your-vision.”
