HERBIE J PILATO – THE SPRINKLER OF STARDUST

Who says TV is ignoring people over 50? Not our Contributing Editor Herbie J! And we minions at TVWriter™ aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed:

by David Laurell

Herbie J Pilato has just finished taping an episode of his new show, “Then Again with Herbie J Pilato,” which will debut on the Decades Network in the first quarter of 2017. As his guest, Burt Ward, who played Robin in the 1960’s “Batman” series, is mingling with crew members – signing autographs and posing for photos – Pilato quietly stands in the shadows of the studio’s set.

“This is just what I wanted the show to be,” he says. “An opportunity for viewers to get a glimpse into the lives of the men and women who played instrumental roles in the television shows they grew up with.”

Pilato is a writer, author, producer, performer, consultant and entertainment executive who has worked on numerous television productions, including Bravo’s five-part series, “The 100 Greatest TV Characters,” “Bewitched: The E! True Hollywood Story,” A&E’s biography of Lee Majors, and TLC’s “Behind the Fame” specials on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “Hill Street Blues” and “L.A. Law.”

He has served as a consulting producer and onscreen cultural commentator on documentaries for Sony, NBCUniversal and Warner Bros., including “The Six Million Dollar Man,” “Kung Fu” and “CHiPs.”

The author of a long list of top-selling, critically acclaimed pop culture and classic television-related books published by Taylor Trade Publishing, Pilato’s best-known tomes include “Dashing, Daring and Debonair: TV’s Top Male Icons from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s” (2016), “Glamour Gidgets and the Girl Next Door” (2014), “The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery: A Guide To Her Magical Performances” (2013), and “Twitch Upon a Star: The Bewitched Life and Career of Elizabeth Montgomery” (2012).

He has also authored “The Kung Fu Book of Wisdom” (Tuttle Publishing, 1995), which, based on the series, offers readers a set of principles for living a peaceful and fulfilling life, and “NBC & ME: My Life as a Page in a Book” (BearManor Media, 2008),” a memoir of his time as an NBC page where he worked on numerous shows including “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.”…

TVWriter™ Don’t-Miss Posts of 2016

It’s the second day of 2017, and Team TVWriter™ is “back on the air” after the holiday break and working our way back up to our usual schedule of daily posts.

We also have a couple of new features.

First and foremost is our new “Top Spots on TVWriter™” slideshow in the righthand index. Just move your eyes right and you’ll see it…unless, of course, there’s been a tech glitch. (And this being TVWriter™, and the interweb, hey, it could be quite likely.) Top Spots is a series of clickable links to parts of the site we think are especially important. Those spots will change from day to day or week to week, so it’s worth having a look when you visit.

Our second new feature is the “TVWriter™ Writing & Showbiz News Feed.” This is a curated presentation of news stories about – surprise! – writing and showbiz. Not only does this replace our former weekly “Posts TVWriter™ Wishes We’d Published First” column, it totally kicks ass by automatically updating every two hours. So you know the drill: Visit early and visit often. (And if there’s a particular news source you’d like us to carry, let us know and we’ll do our best to add it.)

And now, onto the business at hand. Today we’re looking back at all of 2016 and giving you the Top Ten Most Visited Posts and Resource Pages of the Year.

The most popular blog posts during the year 2016 were, in order:
