While this project has actually been in the works for more than a year now, I’m afraid I’m only just getting the opportunity to begin posting about its progress. I will be including more information about the project in a future post, but right now I just wanted to bring everybody up to speed on “the story so far.”
Yesterday I began transcribing an interview I did with Soap director Jay Sandrich back in April 2008. If the name sounds familiar, it might be because, in addition to Soap, he directed everything from The Cosby Show to Mary Tyler Moore. You can add to that list the fact that he is an extremely funny, affable gentleman.
While some memories are a bit hazy for him, his ability to recall things from more than 40 years ago is astonishing. Look for his reminiscences in the pages of Soap! The Inside Story of the Sitcom that Broke all the Rules, coming from Bear Manor Media in late 2009/early 2010.
