Yesterday, I completed transcribing a short talk I had with Fred Silverman, the former head of ABC. Though much shorter than most of the discussions I’ve had for this book, it was nevertheless extremely educational, especially concerning the storm of controversy that greeted Soap‘s debut back in the ’70s.
It also inadvertently led me to a small discovery about that controversy, the details of which I hope will be forthcoming fairly soon. (Unless it all turns out to be nothing, in which case I will quietly forget I ever made this posting. Ah, the artistic license of the Internet age.)
