We aren’t always reading about our pal Herbie J Pilato, but when we do, we read the most interesting things. Here’s the latest on what one of TVWriter™’s first and foremost contributing editors – now “Contributing Editor Emiritus” – is up to:
Hello All –
I am so over-the-moon with this announcement:
THEN AGAIN WITH HERBIE J PILATO – a classic TV talk show for every generation – has been renewed for a second season.
And not only that, but a new monthly SPIN-OFF series has been given the green light.
None of this would have been possible without the remarkable executive team at Council Tree Productions, headed by Joel Eisenberg and Steve Hillard, producer Lorie Girsh, marketing maven Bob Barnett, countless multi-talented production team members, guest stars, and an endless list of remarkably creative individuals.
And the fans of the show? What would we do without you?!
I once again offer my sincerest and deepest gratitude to all!
Executive Producer Joel Eisenberg tells us that all but the last two episodes of the first season of Then Again are currently available on Amazon Prime, and during August the two remaining episodes, starring Burt Ward (Robin on TV’s original Batman) and Ed Asner (Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show), will join them.
As for that spinoff Herbie J mentioned?
Yeppers, it’s coming as a series of twelve monthly specials, but Eisenberg cautions that “We’ll keep his close to the vest for now.”
He also wants everybody to know that “I have to say it. I rib the guy mercilessly, but CONGRATULATIONS, Herbie J. You deserve this.”
