Hey, c’mon, that’s what successful writers do.
And, man is Bellisario ever successful. We’re talking about the creator-writer-producer of NCIS, JAG, MAGNUM P.I., AIRWOLF, BLACK SHEEP SQUADRON, QUANTUM LEAP. All that good stuff.
This interview isn’t new. It was recorded several years ago as part of the TV Academy’s “Archive of American Television.” But everything Bellisario says about TV writing and the TV biz is as valid as it ever was.
Besides, you love hearing other writers’ war stories. You know you do. And Bellisario’s got plenty of ’em.
