(Note from Larry Brody: For those of you who need to know more about my first mentor, Bill Blinn, here’s a little something he wrote in The Lost Angeles Times way back in 2001. This will explain what I mean when I say he was a good guy and the best boss I ever had. Hell, he may in fact have been the best man I ever knew in showbiz.)
Years ago I was fortunate enough to be executive producer and writer on the TV series “Fame.” It was set in the semi-fictionalized School of the Arts in New York City and dealt with the hopes and aspirations of the students as well as their angst and interplay with the school’s faculty.
