"Inside Conan Colin Unimportant Hollywood podcast. Beautifully done. I'm half of the hosting team my name's Mike Sweeney and you are. Jesse gaskell. We're both riders on the CONAN show. Yeah the. Non Emmy nominated Conan show. Yes. It's Hollywood's fourth-biggest night we really is we were nominated for them as a few times once I went and you know they have bleachers for fans fans, television I. Guess. Just, yell at all, you know are celebrities that are walking by. You know people yelling Conan is like I don't know twenty feet behind him and I'm just like you know K. I just an anonymous schlub and then somebody yelled Hey Lincoln what 'cause I played Abe Lincoln on a few sketches. So I was like to my wife honey please stop. Hold Up. Got Milk this my fan is here. Yeah exactly. What on one moment with his sad man in the back of a bleacher. We did sketch us all the time where the way the sketch would end was figuring out a new way to assassinate Lincoln Oh. Wow. Yeah I think once they had me come out. As. A reanimated head. And I, hear his head, and then the curtain opens again. John Wilkes booth sped comes out in a separate Shar and he has a gun in his teeth and he shoots me Oh, man, it's kind of. An old cliche and the sketch with someone getting shot. Yes. I actually think that works exception. Yes and it. Teaches history. So it's educational as well. It's true. Well, have you been? Are you still sewing? I am still I was actually showing right before this really when is your sewing time like is? I'm serious like stressed out I don so all the time like late at night seems not good. That's like silence of the lambs slowing down in. Only so skin suits at night. During the day it seems like the right that's nice. I put on some music and I was listening to a Jimmy Buffett. Record. Okay not just any music. You're so into buffet. We have a great interview do you have a great interview? The please this is one that we recorded a long time ago but we've been sitting on it. Maybe the pandemic was in Wuhan and we were all just like. Oh, China get your act together. We mentioned in the podcast a pandemic would never come here. Right and if it did, it would never last more than a month and even if it did, it would never shut down television production most hallowed occupation. In this country, we talk to Alec Berg who if you are a fan of television I think you're a fan of his sees one of the minds behind Silicon Valley and Another reason we want to talk to him was he was one of the very first writers on late night with Conan O'Brien was, and then he left he and his writing partner left to right on a show called Seinfeld. Am I saying that right? Does he regret that move will find out? Here's Alec Berg. It's the cans on, and then what is this podcast? Today. I don't do. Really don't. Yeah. We were wondering how much of this territory will be trodden but we think people have an oh good. That's great. I, don't know that a lot of people know that you wrote for Coenen. So that's exciting. Yeah. People don't know that I write for any. Buried in your resume, we should introduce you Alec Berg Hello Welcome to the podcast. Thank you well. Thanks for doing this. Thank you for Friday on a Friday afternoon in Los Angeles. Yes. So far this is going great. It is. Actually. Very well, I don't know if you're being sarcastic but I think it's great. I'm assuming it's all sarcasm. I assume every interaction I ever had with anyone as Sarka. Sometimes. See I actually have the opposite where I'm often being sincere and people think I'm being that happens to me a lot where every once in a while I'm sincere. People just assume the boy who cried wolf. Yes. So you gave it up and. Mostly, quit Alec of this incredible resume. But the one thing a lot of people don't know about you is that you wrote on late night with Conan O'Brien. I did briefly in Nineteen ninety-four that started in February of ninety that would have been ninety four. Yes. Show we got there for show ninety nine how Jeff Schaffer ny who I worked with Maven ears were writing team. Yes. So we got there yet in February we got there there were nine massive blizzards that winter they still talk about the winter of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, New York is like one of the worst ones ever and. For eight of them, oh. Wow. So it was like blizzard and then the snow would start to melt and then another blizzard and so that's my memory of trying to get to thirty rock over. Ten feet of snow on the sidewalks allow you ll already living in New York? No Jeff and I moved out to La in the spring of ninety two and we had been trying to get half our jobs and we had gotten tiny nibbles of things here and there and just enough to keep us in macaroni and cheese. Yeah. When CONAN started hiring, we met with him. We were actually jeff and I met with Conan the day he moved to new. York, we went to his apartment that was on doe heaney. You know near what was then chases, which is right on now. So. He just said whatever you like. But we meeting with him and literally his car came to take him to the airport while we were talking to him and I remember him. Pacing. Around and looking out the window and he said, do I need to leave now? He's here. I'm supposed to talk to you guys, but is it rude that he's sitting down? They're ready to take me and like. Yeah. Yeah. This this is so you can leave them waiting for our. It was weeks before he became unbearable. Now, the driver's sits out there for weeks. It was literally the moment that he left. Allow and you guys were meeting with him about something unrelated know about writing though, right show he an Robert had started to sort of like Robert Staff. Yes had started to talk to some people and Jeff and I met with count and then we wrote a submission packet and Robert Spinal Being Roberts Michael. We didn't hear back. and. Then we got a job on a half hour show starring then unknown Jeff Carlin. Show as you may have guessed, didn't go anywhere. And then we got the company that produced. That show also produced a show called Herman's head, which I know you've seen. and. So we were working on Herman's head and we got a call from Roberts model and he basically said Okay can you start tomorrow and we'll ed what do you mean how? Can you start exactly I mean almost literally that and we're like will first of all, we send that stuff in months ago and never heard anything second of all. No, we took an adjustment. -tated. He's like nobody told me you took another job. In the months ago but as luck would have it, Herman's head as you know got cancelled. I'm a real head head. Yeah. Although it didn't it went on hiatus. So we went on hiatus like you know they they shortened the order and it all but got cancelled. So we called them and said, hey, were around. So that's why we started at show ninety nine. And not at the beginning, right. So we went out there in February and work for three or four months. Yeah and then we were under option to Herman's head. So we had to come back and they didn't pick it up. Okay and once we had moved back to La we were sort of waffling or like it just been through the worst winter of US history. Yes and then we were talking about coming back to Conan, and then we got a call from some friends of ours that worked at another show called Seinfeld which you also might have heard of, yes. Not Herman's head but. At the same point? Getting, you're going even Steven. Yes the scale. Comedic. But so we hired Seinfeld. So then we had to call Coenen back and say we're really sorry. Yeah. But we have this other thing and so we ended up working there and that was the end of our with Seinfeld. Edited ever since Yes. Yes. I did Seinfeld had been on when we started working there it was already the number one show. Has Done I don't want to say they had done all the good episode. Because I was there for slightly more than half of them. But it was an established show. Yeah it was. It was already. Yeah Getting, made in the Mafia really had you know met Jerry you're or learning?.

"And let me ask you this Austin because you know, you talk a little bit about the Sixers depth, and you know, they made a move recently talk a little bit about the actual rotation. What you think it's going to be when they get to the playoffs? I have thought a lot about this. I think it's been a very by opponent. I think Mike Scott has played himself pretty much out of the rotation and I think you know he's been more down than up to season. But you know, he's really struggling and he can't if you're not shooting the ball. Well, he's only going to give you a toughness. He can't commit soft. Don't upside to having Mike Scott out on the floor for them. Now, I think it's going to be, you know, largely shake Milton, Alec Berg and Glenn Robinson. Third, as you know, the main piece is whether they also coming off the bench. But I think you know, even the wraparound allude to the fact that he was surprised that riding broke off Simon in six years. I think I think if you really give him a chance to get the fans Let him let him prove himself. I think he can provide into this team. He's not going to be like J. J Heretic where you know you have got you swinging across the perimeter. He's you know, he's able to hit shots. Dating the different spots, But he's more like you know, before they acquired him, but Prime Jason Capone Oh, a guy who could sprint it to a baseline could really move out at the ball. Shoot the ball really well from the outside and his and when he was in Dallas, he fell victim to a very deep team. There were not a deep team, but they were. They were deep with a lot of young guys. I think he was sort of You know the casualties of them trying to cut, you know, trump any cough when they were when they were making move during this season, but I think Ryan broke off can contribute. I think I think a big part of what their location is going to be is, you know, Can they trust for Concorde to provide that spark that he provided so much this season and then not get played off the court on the defensive end of the ball and Matisse. I will not be in negative on offense and then not commit. You know, Bill advised, 1000 even But you know, the death has been an issue for this team for quite some time. And you know, they really do need guys like shape. Milton the step up Horford to step up and really provide sort of that second pulse after the starters, you know, they begin to. Ah, settle into the game and get the rest. Yeah, no doubt about it. So Austin Glad you could break down all of that force Austin Krell N B A and Sixers coverage for the painted lines. Thanks for giving us a couple of minutes. All right, Take it easy, Austin. So if you want to join the show to 1559 to 94 94 that's Hagen into 1559 to 94 94. We've got about 40 minutes left. And then Ricky Ricardo's on right is a Ricky. Yes. Okay. Ricky Ricardo will be in the house at 10 o'clock. So again, we got about 40 minutes left. We're going to talk a little bit more about the MLB here because we have the potential for a really Top notch team name and that is coming up next. Don't go anywhere. No Napa Auto parts stores and Napa Auto care centres Get a $25 prepaid visa card when you get any net automotive battery. It's the best deal for some of the best batteries from some of the best car people around, But we might be a little partial, Anyhoo, pick up any nap automotive battery and save 25 bucks. Do it yourself or have it done for you? That's Napa. Know how I know how that participating Napa Auto parts stores.

Bill Hader on Barry | Interview

"Double sized episode of the big picture. This is a conversation show with filmmakers, and we're talking to a few of them today. The first of which you may have heard of his name is Bill hater he is. Of course, the creator the writer producer, and sometime director of a little show called Barry show on HBO that we love here at the wringer. I talked to Bill about making Barry, but more specifically just about movies because men this guy knows a lot about film, and he's really fun to talk to you. He put me on to a bunch of movies. I think if you're interested in the wider world of movies in the history of the medium, you'll enjoy this chat. And then right after that, we're going to have another interview with two people. I really admire the actress Mary Kay place who you may recall from things like the big chill. She was an EMMY winner in the seventies. She's been steadily working as an actress for the last forty years and the critic turned filmmaker and documentarian Ken Jones. Kent's first film as a narrative film maker is called Diane and Mary Kay. The star of that movie, and it's a really beautiful intimate complex portrait of a person nearing the end of their life. And how things change around them as they approach that stage. So please stick around after Bill to listen to that one. But before that, let's go right to Bill Hader. Joined by actor writer, director producer all kinds of stuff ill hater, hey, buddy. How are you? I'm doing good. So bill. This is a show where we talk about movies, and you made a TV show, but you are like the all-time movie buff. Yeah. And so I wanna talk about berry as kind of a filmmaking property. What do you think? Yeah. It'd be great now. Most people kind of friends who were like, it's kinda just, you know, a four hour movie that we've broken up into eight is that how you can send it as like. Well, the way we write it. I had never written in a in a traditional TD writing room writer's room before the only one had really been in outside of Santa live of south park. And finally kind of knew what those guys did. And it was kind of like their their shows have, you know, a three acts, and so you were kind kinda just it was never really written in order. It was kind of. We know this needs to happen. Then at some point this happens, and then towards the end, maybe this happens, and then you're kind of finding scenes at connect these things, and then it all starts changing. So I kind of did that. But with with eight episodes, I would just put one two to four one through eight up on the bore whiteboard. I would just start plotting, and you know, season one it was like, okay. So, you know, end of episode to be really good. If you know, they had this thing for rhyme Addison embarrassed starting to realize, you know, e- seizes father speak in rhyme. Adam's, father speaking, he realizes. Oh, gosh. You know, he didn't you've never seen that side of it before, you know. And then maybe it's good if you know Vaujour's following them that'd be good. You know in the in the, you know, the the way call it his his friends from Chris in those guys military guys they come in around episode. Owed four or five. So question Mark, you know, more friends years, your puzzle PC, and you're just kind of laying it out, but you laid out as a full things. So, you know, by eight it's like, I just know eight forever just had moss versus berry at the end. And we had no idea where that took place or what happened. But I I've felt and we all kind of felt like they should have she should figure it out. You know? So we knew that was at the end of eight at the end of the last episode, but we didn't know how that would happen is that more similar to the way you'd read a movie, I mean, I don't know. I I mean, I everyone has a different way of doing it some people the idea out of outlining is for bowdoin in people. I think because screen play unlike a novel novel can be as long as you want screenplay should be about under twenty pages. And when you're structuring a story for film or. Television. There has to be like structure to it. You know, now that doesn't mean in asked to be kind of like what we do or you know, that kind of Billy wilder thing. Or I, you know, where it was every everything is set a payoff, everything is super clean, and you know, that what by I love that. It's really hard to pull off in. That's why I enjoy that kind of writing. But you know, I mean, I mean, some of the best movies of Hollywood specially in the seventies were really during didn't know where it was going, but they have a structure there. You know, be too great how Ashby movies being there and last detail fron tense purposely last details just kind of a a road movie quest movie quest movie in about these two guys finding their humanity in in and trying to show this guy a good time before he goes to jail in. Kind of forgetting their jobs is in what they've learned military men and all this and an in kind of shedding their the humanity that they have to repress when I put the uniform on and all that, and it's all very emotional. But when you look at it, it's got a really great structure, you know, has a really tight structure now, I don't know if Robert towne took that book, and you know, outlined it in figured it out. But if feels that way, and so sometimes the first draft is like an outline you're kinda like you're writing I've done it both ways we write a draft to something with no outline in it. It's got a lot inspired stuff in it. But it's kind of cranky, you know. Yeah. So then you kind of go over it you show it to a friend in the gonna will head of it there. You know, this would go here what you know in the new you'd try to because you want it to feel kinda we're Ganic. But when you're doing TD showing you got thirty minutes. It's it's kinda hard to do that. Because you have to keep a tight inside frame. It really tight. Yeah. And I'm also just someone I don't like wasting people's time. And so when we got the TV show actually went back and watch TV. But I would I would read short stories was really good. I would want. I would read like Tobias Wolff for Flannery O'Connor any these people and kind of see just pay attention to the structure, you know, in in not that far off the tone of those writers. I feel like to. Yeah. Yeah. Give me and hard to find. As like totally an incredible berry template as far as gets on this incredibly funding in very disturbing at the same time. But you know, trying to understand where the emotions coming from. I think we're Alec Berg, and I worked so well together as I'm kind of all emotion, and he's all logic. And my strong suit is as weak suit in my weeks at his strong suit. Not that he's not. National is he's he's comes up. I think some

"Oh kind of the brainchild of bill hader totally and i definitely felt especially in the pilot which i think is is definitely something like with pilots are like i and sometimes and sometimes they feel a little overwrought but this was one of those pilots that you could tell bill hader had been thinking about for a long time i think he actually shot this quite a while ago well in typical each fashioned their development pipeline is so slow that i think he i started to generate the idea way fourteen in fourteen fifteen yeah with alec berg who has a great resume but more recently is the co show runner silicon valley they shot the pilot i think in early sixteen shot the series and seventeen and it finally premiered in eighteen and it has the feel of something that's been really really thought out not only is the world really well developed in a not in a very subtle way amid sense of place in terms of that north hollywood vibe that that the the character mostly resides in is really excellent but also totally which is probably the hardest thing to find an pilot i agree with that so to give a little bit of background basically this is about exsoldier who's gotten back from afghanistan and becomes a hitman working for one of his father's friends and he seems to by the way is also in collateral yes right literally a hip person from the army walk working for one of her father's friends and frankly there's a couple of beats in here where this show does remind me a little bit of grosse pointe blank which is pretty pretty i think important movie in our high school days john cusack minnie driver college six something that ninety seven maybe is that when you were in high school.
