"That was john and it never will be cotton fair enough fair enough. And i'll tell you what it is. It's a race of men struggle for survival. Just as you have survived and captain ben. Tina's quite right when he tells you what isn't a place of all beauty. We may have worse and they're still remains prejudice. Nice opposed as long as men walk will be angry. Men jealous men unforgiving men but it has one thing that you don't have one thing it lets every man his own master so ultimately anton- rather than swallowing his pride or allowing himself to be calm. Just like everyone else says he stays and becomes the god of an inhospitable planet with a population of one and the irony is howdy. Gone back to where he might not have been the leader of these people anymore. But as sloan said earlier on he would've been lionized on his return he would have been the retaining hero. He probably would have done the talk. Show say it's written books. You know the possibilities were endless for bending could have done when he got back if he'd only gotten on that ship in his book rod sailing in the twilight zone. Douglas brodie comments that in individual episodes rod sailing voices. His this taste for dictators on both the left and the rate but this is his comment on a benign dictator. He also comments allow on the religious aspect of the story and calls. Ben teen moses like figure he also calls him an anachronistic figure who is outlived his usefulness a man who warns a false gods but then becomes one now all of this is of course valid but one it also brings home to me is that we all view things through our own lenses for me. It wasn't really the religious undertones that drew me in or comments on dictators of their politics. But it was about those small dictators who we meet in our day-to-day lives who find a peppers in a row and then cling onto for dear life now. I recently reconnected with an old favourite television. Show that i hadn't watched for some time i wondered to myself. One is out there about this show online. Is that a fan community. Is that a dedicated website. And when i looked. I found a website that was probably the oldest of its kind online made by a man who probably did it for the right reasons created the site to celebrate the thing that i loved and to invite waters to revel in that enjoyment to and because it was the fans to this kind it was able to forge links with the original show that it was about that others weren't able to do in later years so in its own small space online it became important and it even had a fan club of sorts for people to be able to have some interaction with the website. So i thought to myself how wonderful you know. Maybe i'll check that out. But then i read more and more. I found that the rules for joining the society was pages and pages and reams and reams of banal regulations that were clearly not there to make an enjoyable experience for the members but to protect and cement. This man's place as what he perceived to be the top in his field. Now i'm not going to mention what that show was or what. The website was bor-. That's the reason that this episode never really spoke about politics to me although clearly that is there but this trade is not just limited to people in government it can be there in the smallest of ways so after slogging through an episode. I wasn't particularly fond of last time. This was like a breath of fresh air. Every feels i comes together this beautifully artificial backdrop. That makes you feel like you're watching a wonderfully produced stage play and then sailing being on top form with both writing and pace in this through the longer running time. This being too long never entered my mind. Because i was riveted from start to finish and then james whitmore is ben teen just raises a whole thing performance so perfectly pitched that you just watch this man transformed from one thing to another before your eyes but make it seemed so perfectly natural and in the end he steps over the line so much that we're left in no doubt the what was previously so altruistic had become so self serving and i think sailing knew he had to go down here and martin grams junior documents in unlocking the door to a television classic comment by sailing where he says it's my real conviction that this is an above average item with consistently fine performances. In which mister whitmore is unique. I think it is probably one of the best twilight zones that we've ever done. And who am i to argue with the great man because now it's my conviction to that. This is not only above average item but while says effortlessly into the top tier of twilight zone for me maybe mytalk ten william bent teen who had perogatives he could lead he could direct dictate. Judge legislate it became a habit that pattern and finally an excessively william ben teen once god now a population of one says relief. It's nice to get to this stage in the show and be able to discover an episode. Like i'd never seen it before but to discover one just rockets to the top of my twilight zone tear. I guess but i do hope that going forward and is a bit more trivia to go round. It's starting to really get in. And you know the last thing i want to do is just kinda commentator through the episode you know because that's the pattern that you kinda fall into so even though there wasn't much trivia. I tried to make it a bit more about analysis if does not much No facts and figures to get into but we'll see we'll see what the future holds and i will adapt accordingly but we have quite a bit to gets through so i'm going to thank people fair so i'm going to thank i. Change review is is snakes. Jock i thank you for your positive review. I appreciate that. And they said that they would like me to do an episode about the tower of terror. While it's it's long been in my mind to do that. And i will try and figure it out. Try and figure out. I would really like to do. You want to get a bit of inside info on now. You wanna speak to someone who who's kind of who is really on the inside of ganay made and i don't quite know who that pass.

"On is as brooks in the one thousand nine hundred ninety. Four film the shawshank redemption james. Whitmore the man who benefited so much from the bill that brought him back into society playing the ex con who had spent so long inside that he just couldn't integrate back into society. I am big final james more and he might not have those typically leading man looks but he has an interest in face with those big bushy eyebrows and a smile that seems to stretch from ear to ear and i find him such a magnetic presence on screen. But if you've ever seen interview to. He has a wonderful sense of humor and a great deadpan delivery. Or how is he this well. I won't mince my words on this one book. James whitmore's performance as captain. Ben team has instantly to one of my favorite twilight zone performances of all time. When we meet him he is every bit demand. We would want to lead us in a situation like they are iran calm and kind sometimes strict ready to make difficult decisions but always fair. But it's all about that progression as the situation changes around him. We see the wild benzene led the group for all the right reasons. He wants to hold onto that authority for all the wrong ones. But it's a switch the way at more handle so well the way. He pushes his characters. Janney along taking these small steps change in from this wonderful altruistically to what we end up with later on before you know it your left in no doubt that this was a good man who is just let the power go to his head. But i don't think whitmore goes very big with his performance and with a character. Jenny like this. If a different actor had decided to go a bit bigger with their it might have been the right choice of probably could affect for. I think whitmore keeps things so. Grounded gives them the room to ten things a bit later on and gives them a great range to work with and i think he pitches this perfectly and it truly is a twilight zone performance for the ages.

"Fifty AM and ninety four one FM. And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space command qualify for a TV or a movie Oscar category. TV EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous gorgeous statue, Ray, Bradbury one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys from news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff holding the globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen morning, George good to have you with us. More. I have a question. Sure. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season for and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We know funny because recently when rod conceive wrestling conceiver twilights initially thought, it was going to be an hour show, and he actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts but finally decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being expanded to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to enlarge the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really a half a season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Yeah. Highlights on really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight on all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that it needed to go back half dragging at. There's a great hour long episode called on Thursday, we leave for home the stars James Whitmore and rod swimming wrote it, and it's it's just great. It's a terrific but then for the fifth season the fifth and final season. They went back to a half hour thirties were actually twenty twos. Weren't they? Closer to like twenty seven. There were only. They're only fewer commercials back. Then. Those days parliament now, don't they? Sure, do but back laid you most of the both have our was was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette. Much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle got him in the long run. He died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had you. Sure. Did he he pleaded more in his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home Johnny Carson. Or isn't it? Travis. Travis good. They have. Hope you're doing. Well, you hear me? Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions for Mark. Sure. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a series series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel significantly watch it, and in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. And we'll be putting posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we visited the show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by by the next few months, I'll write the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kickstart throw some money our way, and that'll be popsy part of one full of this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much less money. Than the network hallmark God. Because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yeah. One hour, and but they can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree, female dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's a it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it I cast it. I should it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is just wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill mummy like Doug Jones. And Robert the cartoon Mira Furlan was box lightning initial Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on some hit show on the. W who can't act or women? That's not the CW. But they get the network. It's who you get the cash. No, you don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality, like they went to sporran, they have to reach the level of spirituality. And I think that's the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself, and I I've done a lot of monster typing and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast Sifi so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I I just like hearing Lynn somebody's doing creative processes like this. Yes. And and and you know, when when I talked about, spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personal beliefs are, but I think if if time this is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And but you have to be a Christian, you can be a Buddhist or. Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any Theus. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every face or and every culture, and it's basically just be kind kind of your family kinds of people you love and be kind on the street. You know, if someone's trying to get into a parking space. There's a garbage can blocking them over across the street move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life in small ways, it has a ripple effect. You don't Robert Davi? Mark have yesterday news work who were close friends with them. So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving in New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi wreck. Go ahead, sir. Oh, thank you for taking my call. Nice to meet you good conversation tonight. You. Couple of questions. Please, sir. Yeah. The twilight zone I used to see is it got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yes. Are you still using that that fame and your goose show that all yeah? On the new twilight zone, they're using original same in that. And those those motifs yet whether so I kinda they're they're gorgeous. Yeah. That's my bring. Yeah. Bring you a lot of people attention to the black hole. You know, did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe strips that you believe in any space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not in terms of UFO's or any of that? But but I think that life probably is throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like very fertile fields grows all sorts of crops super thank you rack. Appreciate it. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes. I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what's really was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's when something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle. And rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore says he works hard to possibly could any. He he pulls it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their jewels. Their amazing let's go to beaver Utah. Marie with us. Hello marie. Go ahead. Are you there actually with? Their stock. The next generation, Marcus. Okay. It was Nevoso that was fit in coach trouble troubles. So yes, of course, it's a class. That's a great up. So that was the only original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in I saw not long ago, and it's a great upset in tackling. We were shooting the shell Nichols house. She played Hora individual Star Trek. There was a bowl of trebles on on on. So it's a really fun really really fun episode. But the guy who well, David, Gerald. You know, them all Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean as soon as I was old enough. I went and win search of them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command. When I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there by what I'm doing. And any really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children's network that I'm now creating where I'm going to create six new series with six major children, and these are people who've done the greatest hits in television. And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the freedom that this offers. They want the freedom that they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors, the we that we love there's an actress named Barbara Dane who was on mission impossible and space nineteen ninety nine and a friend of mine knows. All right. A role for role for her and why not super do a game show? I want to redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is on compassion was or whatever. And they they were each one was five dollars when a flipped the card that was just unbelievable as they hit the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at was brought to you by some perspiration company. They they had that splattered across there. Television. Oh, it's great. I love fact, that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties..

And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the feedom that offers they want the freedom. That they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors that we that we love there's an actual name Barbara Bain who was on mission impossible is based nineteen ninety nine and friend of my nose. Right. Right. A role for role for her and why not super? Yeah. Do a game show. I've never done. I wanna redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they in the you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is our compassion was or whatever. And they they were each was five dollars when the card that was just on the lead as they hit the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at you know, so if it was it was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their. That's right television. Oh, it's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate and Kenneth scope of broadcast was done live in the fifties. So it's it's I think you I think the internet is such an enormously powerful and wonderful thing, and it can be it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us the way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in in you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities all in. They just for some reason they didn't even recognize that. And that was crazy. Taste anything. There's a great of twilights on called the big tall. Wish that starts. I haven't Dickson has a most of the cast is black and rod Serling load. It's terrific. And there's a little boy in it who's wonderful that and I was trying to find him every time I wrote new additions of the twilight zone companion trying to find him and finally about two weeks ago. I found him he owns a Cajun restaurant here in Los Angeles. And so I'm going to be going there. And see if I can get them to do an audio commentary of that upset I think it would be just a riff does. He know you're coming in there. I've talked some of his employees. So we're definitely gonna have an amazing time when we made his name is Steven Perry. And he's a phenomenal actor he was he was he was every bit as good as Billy mummy, and but African American and I can't wait to meet him..

Bribery, one one for the Halloween TV movie of that. I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding the globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen good morning. Good to have you with us. More. I have a question. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because originally when rod conceive ransoming conceive, a twilight initially thought it was going to be an hour show, and he actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone for the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts the finally decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being stand to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the offer Tich cock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that only gave it really I have season the fourth season was eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilight zone all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much agreed that go back half. I was dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday, we leave for home the stars, James Whitmore. And rod swing wrote it, and it's it's just great. It's a drift episode but then for the fifth season and final season. They went back to our thirties were actually twenty two weren't they were actually closer to twenty seven. They're only they're only fewer commercials back then those days. Now, don't they? Sure do but the back then they mostly both. That was was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette is pretty much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle in the long run. I mean, you died of complications from open heart surgery, and you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy got a lot done in the time. He had. Did he he did more in his time than most people do at ninety? Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home Ajami. Carson. Isn't it? Travis Travis Willis doing well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious serious. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rock and roll. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quell. And so I'm by by the next few months, the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and share with our audience, and it's the new way of television, and then our audience, just you know, finances, they buy shares they've gone kick-starting throw some money our way, and that'll be popsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. This money than the network all God. Because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but basecamp I can do it. So far, I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that. I was able to the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me at Mark Zicree, female dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's m people around the world are buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill me like Doug Jones, and Robert Picard and Mira Furlan boxed Lightner initial Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you'll use an actor was just on some hitch show on the CW who can't act. That's not w but they get the network at safely get Castell. You don't. And and I don't want to have that over my head another ques-. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality, like they went to spore, and they have to kinda the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that the focus on for your project. I'm in artists myself. And I I've done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast site by so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing when somebody's doing creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And you have to be a Christian, you can get Buddhist or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any Theus. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every faith or. And every culture, and it's basically just be kind kind of your family kind of people you love and be kind on the street. You know, someone's trying to get into a parking space a garbage can blocking them over across the street and move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life, and small ways as rentals fact, you know, Robert Dhabi, Mark have you seen these? We're close friends with them. So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with him. Thank you. Thank you for that.

I used to save it got that twirly little thing in a white. Yes. Yes. Are you still using that that game and your show that all yeah? On the new twilight they're using original same in that. And those those motifs have whether so I it to they're they're gorgeous. Yeah. That's my bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people the tension to it's like the black hole. You know? Did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe scripts that you believe in any space off creatures of any kind definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not in terms of you afford or any of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like very fertile fields grows all sorts of crops. Super. Thank you wreck. Appreciate it. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle in rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore as he works hard to possibly could any he pulls it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their gills their amazing. Let's go to beaver Utah marines with us. Hello maria. Go ahead. I actually. The Star Trek the next generation, Marcus. For that show. Okay. It was never. So that was called trouble travels. Oh, yes. Of course. It's a classic. That's great up. So that was original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in tax on not not long ago. And it's a great upset in tackling shooting. The shell Nichols house. She played a little Star Trek. There was a bowl of triples on. So it's really fun. Really really fun episode. So well, David Gerald, you know, a mall, Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean soon as I was old enough. I wouldn't win search for them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command dating when I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there what I'm doing.

And you know, I just like hearing when somebody's doing creative processes like this. Yes. And when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personal beliefs are, but I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And you have to be a Christian Buddhist or Jewish like, I am or or or even. Agnostic or any Theus? I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every faith or and every culture, and it's basically just be kind kind of your family kind of people you love and be kind on the street.

"And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space. Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, George I would love to have a gorgeous gorgeous statue, Ray, Bradbury one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. They are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding the globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen morning, George good to have you with us. More. I have a question. Sure. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because usually when rod conceive wrestling conceiver twilights initially thought it was going to be in our show. He actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that were our scripts the plainly decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being extended to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the offered Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that only gave it really I have season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilights all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that it needs to go back half dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday. We for home this stars James Whitmore and rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific. But then for the fifth season the fifth and final season. They went back to our thirties were actually twenty twos. Weren't they actually closer to twenty seven? They're only they're only few commercials back then those days. Yeah. Now, don't they? Sure, do but the back then they most of the both that have was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette pretty much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle. What got him in the long run? I mean, he died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really let's older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had. Yeah. He sure did. He he did more in his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis Travis who they can doing. Well, you hear me? Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movies that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rock and roll. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by by the next few months, right? The entire twelve hours. And then we'll we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares. They've gone kick. Start throw some money our way, and that'll be part of one thing. This is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. Less money than the network Homar God because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but base command I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark, Zicree itchy mail dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But but I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is one cast of amazing science fiction actors like they'll let me like Doug Jones and Robert Picard win Mira Furlan box lighter in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on some hitch. Show on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at safely get the castle. You don't. And and I don't want to have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they went to score, and they have to reach the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that's the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself.

It was it was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their all time television. It's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate, and it was Kenneth scope of of broadcast was live in the fifties. So it's it's I think YouTube, I think the internet is such an enormously powerful and one full thing it, can it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us in a way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in and you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities at all in..

But the boy got a lot done in the time. He had he did he did more in his time than most people do at ninety. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis Travis Willis doing well. Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movie that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious serious. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and that's free. And I've put the first hour of space command on on my channel actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. And we'll be posting from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we we envisioned the show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rocking roller. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quell. And so I'm by the next few months, I'll write the entire twelve hours. And then we'll just we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's new to television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares they've gone kickstart throw some money our way, and that'll be popsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. Less money than the network Homar God because a friend since Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars. Fifteen million dollars. An episode episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour. And but space command, I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the to our pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares space command, they can Email me, Mark Zicree gmaiLcom. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, you know, the the cast is wonderful cast of amazing science fiction actors like Bill mummy like Doug Jones, and Robert mccarter Furlan response Lightner in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They say no you have to use an actor was just on some hitch. Show on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at say who you get cash. No, you don't. And and I don't wanna have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they went to spoil. They have to kinda greets the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in artists myself, and I done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. But I haven't really really fast site by so often listen to coast to coast over the years. And you know, I just like hearing Lynn somebody think creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's I, you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, I'd love one another I believe that. And you have to be a Christian Buddhist. Or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any theorist. I mean, kind this is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much in every every faith or and every culture, and it's basically just kind kind of your family because of people who love and be kind on the street, you know, someone's trying to get into a parking spaces a garbage can block them over across the street and move the garbage can and it's just putting that into practice your life in small ways as ripple effect. You know, Robert dovey Mark have. Yes. We're close friends with them. So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving a New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi wreck. Go ahead, sir. Thank you for taking my call. I nice to Marquette good conversation tonight. Onto a couple of questions. Please, sir. The twilight zone I used to save. It got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yeah. Are you still using that that fame and your show that? Yeah. On the new twilight zone, they're using ritual. Same in that and those those motifs yet, whether so I kinda they're gorgeous. Yeah, bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people the tension. Do like the black hole. You know? Did you believe aliens? When you first started writing ear Europe strips that you believe in any space space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not in terms of UFO's or any of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are on pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like Larry for tile field grows all sorts of crops super thank you wreck appreciated. I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what's really was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. It's when something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle and rod sterling certainly accomplished that anymore as he works hard to possibly could any he pulls it off. And it's an amazing amazing thing. I just you go back to those original shows, and there's just their gills their amazing. Let's go to be for Utah marines with us. Hello marie. Go ahead. Are you there actually? That star the next generation, Marcus. For that show. Okay. It was Napa that was fit in called trouble trouble. So yes, of course, it's a classic. That's a great up. So that was the only original Star Trek series. And I was written by David Gerald who actually went to college with my wife. My wife read that script in the first draft. And and I I know David very well in not long ago, and it's a great upset in tackling shooting. The shell Nichols house. She played in Star Trek. There was a bowl of triples on. So it's really fun. Really really fun episode. Guy who well, David, Gerald. You know, Mark. Yep. Yep. Yep. They're my heroes. These writers are just wonderful. I mean, if I went and win search of them, and they became friends and mentors. And you know, they were just just really brilliant writers. What's the reaction? But in Hollywood about the way, you're doing space command meeting when I meet with network, executives and executives at Netflix, which I did a few weeks ago there by what I'm doing. And and it really admire the fact that I can raise money for my audience that got millions of fans around the world, it's significant and and the people who are creating series, you know, with children's network that I'm not creating where I'm going to create six new series with six major children, and these are people who've done the greatest hits in television. And when I invite them to come aboard they want to because they want the feedom that this offers they want the freedom. That they can write what they wanna right. They can say what they wanna say. They can we there's one show that we're going to be creating where we can reach out to all these wonderful actors that we that we love there's an actual name Barbara Bain who was on mission impossible is based nineteen ninety nine and offended. My nose. All right. A row for role for her. And why not super? Yeah. Do a game show. I've never done. I wanna redo the what's my line show. Yes. That was such a great show. I love that shows that cool. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, they you had ten times to get it. Right. If you had ten wrong answers, they flip over the cards, and they tell the person what is on compassion was or whatever. And they they were each was five dollars when the card was just on the lead as and they had the sponsor's name across the front of the desk that the four panelists were sitting at was brought to you by some perspiration company. They had that splattered across their all time television. It's great. I love the fact that YouTube has a lot of those shows where you can go back and watch the old Kenneth scopes from the fifties. And it's just I was just watching Alfred Drake in kiss me Kate, and it was Kenneth scope of of a broadcast was done live in the fifties. So it's it's I think YouTube, I think the internet is such an enormous. Powerful and wonderful thing, and it can be it can have negative sides. Of course. But I think it's brought the world to us the way that was not possible before the one thing that it did lack in and you notice that right away is it did not have a presence of minorities all in. They just for some reason they didn't even recognize that. And that was crazy..

Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, EMMY, George I would love to have an amazing gorgeous, gorgeous statue bribery, one one for the Halloween the TV movie of that. I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. And they are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen good morning. Good to have your with us. Mark. I have a question. Why does why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because originally when rod conceive ransoming conceiver twilight initially thought it was going to be an hour show any actually wrote up four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that he wrote were our scripts the plainly decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour. He realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being standing to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the Hitchcock. So and so they thought they might be able to a large the audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that they only gave it really I of season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. Twelve I really didn't work as well. As our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilights all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season evergreens that needed so back for half. I was dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday for home the stars James Whitmore and rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific episode. But then for the fifth season fifth and final season. They went back to our thirties were actually twenty two weren't they actually closer to like twenty seven. They're only they're only fewer commercials back then those days. Now, don't they do? But the back then they mostly most was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette as much all the time. And he was a feel four pack a day. Smuggle got him in the long run. Died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really looks older than he was he died at fifty. And which is the new thirty amazing. The boy he got a lot done in the time. He had assured that he he pleaded more and his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny Carson number. Isn't it? Travis.

They buy shares they've gone kickstart. Interesting money our way, and that'll be potsy part of one thing this is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much less. Money than the network Homar God because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars. Nets game of thrones is over fifteen fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but base command can do it so far as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars. And with that.

"One of the few people who can listen daily show correspondent and Fox News host on their resume. Tom shillue? Tom shillue? The great example of I was on. The daily show the way I got onto the daily show was I pitched them a segment called this week in a hate. I used to do a weekly roundup of racist websites. It was part of a comedy show. Now is racism funny. No. But I was essentially making fun of the people who were doing the early adopters of racism on the whip. Because the idea was the web was brand new back then it was the late nineties early two thousands. And the fact that the Klan had a website. It did seem kind of funny. So I would go onto their website and poke fun of them, and then other sites in fact, comedy central love the peace, and I did it for a while. I did many segments on it some of them which you can find still on the daily show website. But I did them under the Craig Kilborn who was the first host of the daily show, then when John Stewart took over we kept the segment going, and those are the last few are the only ones you can find on the web on the comedy central website. I think it's still there. But I started expanding into not just white. Hate groups. But other hate groups. In fact, there is a one segment, I don't know if it's still on the website of the black Israelites that were in that controversy last week a few weeks ago with the kids from Covington Catholic, and I made fun of that group. But increasingly as I as I expanded from the black supremacy, and there was actually a crazy Jewish group. That was. Apocalyptic Jewish group. And I did a Muslim hate group. Jon Stewart got uncomfortable with the fact he liked it. When it was just, you know, just the white supremacy. I wanted to make fun of all racism of all different colors and comedy central like to keep it just as the white. So in any case that ended up being the the end of that segment, but. Just to show you that segment. I did this week in hate that had little swastikas on it. And it was done almost like mister Rogers, and it was done as silly segment now racism isn't funny, but back then people got the joke. They wouldn't get the joke today because nobody gets anything today. And I'm looking for examples, I gave you silver streak the guy putting shoe polish on his face for comic effect. We're talking about the movie soul man, a mainstream comedy in the eighties that Julia Louis Dreyfuss and James Earl Jones ran should they turn in their sad cards because they were in that. I'm looking for examples. Eight three three eight five two four eight six six Michael in Villanova, Pennsylvania. Hey, Tom, three examples number one, the old Amos and Andy TV show and radio show. There's been a foot. There's been a people were trying to boycott gone with the win ever being shown again on TV or in the movie theaters because of the way the blacks, but what I mentioned in that one. I was on the phone is coming out. What do we think of this? This is a true story. It's a nineteen in nineteen Fifty-nine a guy from Texas. Her name was John Robert Griffin. I know chemically. His skin to go in the deep south and see what it was like their. He wrote a book called black like me, the nineteen sixty four James Whitmore who we know played him. So how would people react to that? I read that in school that was required. Reading in my junior high. No one would read that today. I we have to read it was required reading, and I thought it was a great book. And but you know, how people react today. They I mean, they they wouldn't because they they are the blanket thing is the statement that came out today that said all existence of these old photographs of black face show, virulent racism, the fact is there were many things just like all the things we've just been cited liberals were involved in a lot of these projects the comedies of the eighties. Black like me the man was a liberal civil rights leader. In fact, you wanna go even further than this, Michael who Al Jolson, Al Jolson is the photographs and you see whenever anyone talks about black face. Al Jolson was the biggest black phase entertainer in the country, and he did a movie called the jazz singer, which nobody watches anymore because it's a black vase movie, but he was a civil rights pioneer. And you know, you talk about people that cliche when people say all my best friends are black. He he can. Considered himself. You know, whether his movies are acceptable today or not at the time. He was considered a civil rights pioneer because he brought black face to the mainstream and he used black musicians in his band, and he was a big lover of the African American culture and things like that. So people think black face was all one thing. And it was not. Well, here's what the movie green book that just came out. Yes. That is a perfect example of the racism that existed between not only a black man against the white in particular the white guy against the black and the phraseology. And you know, you guys like chicken that whole scene in the car that just came out. Yes, I know. And it is it's a shame. That people have trouble talking about it. And it's you know, we we go through this whenever they make these movies and people say, oh, it's another move a lot of these movies about race relations, like driving miss daisy. It was a hit when it happened. A couple of years later. They reexamined said that's the white save. Era. It's terrible. It's all about white privilege. People don't they they have lost their common sense. Great examples. Thanks for the call James in in Lake City, Florida. Hey, how's it going good? Ada going on. Yeah. That's good up. I find ways to saddle funniest comedy. Every always love that movie cracks me up to say, it's politically incorrect is putting it lightly. That statement definitely Mel Brooks. At a lot of things, you know, the history of the world book, the ones he did on that they had a lot of racial overtones Jewish people and blacks, and all and it was just it was funny. I mean, people need to look at it just funny, but Richard Pryor, he was the first comedian. I ever, you know, really got to listen to play tapes back, then cassette tapes. And he was hilarious. I mean, you know, you couldn't you couldn't make a debate. I don't believe but back, then he was hilarious. I went to an all white school. So I can come to school and do all his routines and just cry my friends up. Do you remember silver streak? Absolutely, man. What gene wilder movies when they buddies all those were hilarious in the store. Crazy was hilarious. Yep. Overstreet and you do all to put on a black face and try and like I say act black and it was. Comedy and people don't people have funny bones anymore. It's all about since sensitivity. And all I'm offended. If you're not listen to it. Don't look at it. Walk around go away from it. Whatever you gotta do. Thank you. It makes me sick. James, thanks for the call. And he's talking about the movie silver streak and other. They used to do a lot of comedies together Pryor and gene wilder and in silver streak. I mentioned he blackened his face. And he said he got to act like a black man he was coaching him. So the the humor obviously was the black man coaching the white guy trying to act black and take obviously you could get away with it. Because you got a black guy, and it was a mainstream comedy. Now, a lot of people as I mentioned after that movie came out, we'll try to imitate that movie, and you would seek suburban kids who loved the movie imitating that movie, and maybe it wasn't entirely appropriate. Because there wasn't any black guy around, but they were trying to do it. Same thing happened with blazing saddles blazing saddles a movie there are black guys white guys, and they're they're making racial humor. They thought obviously they and they could they could get away with it because they were they were lampooning racial. Issues in America. And almost everybody who worked on the show was involved in the civil rights movement. It was Mel Brooks who's friends with Carl Reiner, and they're all friends with other civil rights leaders. What was the name of the guy from show boat that call Reiner was great hero? These at the time we were aware of our racial passed by the time the seventies and eighties came around people was post civil rights and people were starting to celebrate. The the fact that we had made so much racial progress by doing edgy humor. So we mentioned there's may number of mainstream films in the seventies were black white guys for comic effect put on black face, and essentially they were making fun of black face entertainment. And they were they were saying, look, we're not doing the old minster show where it kind of updating it and making fun of it or whatever. And in that spirit is white you had broS showing up at college parties dressing up and putting on black. Face and everything else. It wasn't that in the eighties. People who went to medical school with these crazy racists who were watching birth of a nation and all its dress up like clansman making racial doing racial humor in terms of jokes in in in terms of people doing their high school and college shows and things like that. It was a reflection of what was going on in the pop culture at the time. And so we can we're not gonna do it today. Nobody's gonna do some black face routine and they're getting their yearbook today. But the fact that somebody did it thirty years ago. A shouldn't surprise anyone and be shouldn't have people losing their minds in pretending that they don't know what was going on. We're proving at people are calling up saying giving example after example, and I want you to call up if you had something in your high school show or yearbook that had some kind of inappropriate racial stuff. Call in your anonymous. We're not going to tell you, you know, you can tell me because a lot of this stuff happened in the seventies and eighties. We've cited about ten different examples of things Ben in Washington DC. How you doing? Hey for first time, listen. Yeah. I am to be a black a black, man. I listened to I grew up in in the seventies and eighties. I grew up on Carroll O'Connor. Yeah. What's that just clever comedy? My dad, wouldn't even I wouldn't even make it past the power stays nowadays. People get so offended. But you know, when it when it comes to humor. You know, we had no problem with those shows even the justices because they actually. A message behind it. It was even though it subliminal so to speak, but it it it has some type of message in it. And it was it wasn't mean. It didn't come from a main place so to speak. Yeah. The only problem I have. When it crosses into the politics. Because there was not comedians. You know what I mean? Then I have to I have to try to understand what perspective the person has at that time. What makes that what what what what kind of makeup? Do they have? Or how do they look at me as a black man not in front of the television cameras when they say they had to say but one air when they're deciding on some issues that affect the black community what where's their thoughts coming from? How do they think? So I thought that was kind of irresponsible for someone that's in in medical school. You know to. You you would should be intelligent enough to think about what hurts the people of other people look at certain absolutely, yes. And the thing is a lot of those medical schools. There was another example in that book. I don't know if you saw it. But there were they haven't published the photos, but someone else went through the book, and they found a number of different racial, and or inappropriate things in the book and one of them was a medical student. This is in the same book, grabbing a dummy a medical dummy inappropriately in a sexual fashion and saying something about I'm just helping out my patients, or whatever it was essentially making fun of a doctor. This is a medical school. And there's a photograph in the yearbook of a doctor sexually assaulting a patient. I mean, it was a dummy. But they were it was disgusting. So. That that's another example would never happen today. But when you look back, you think all right. It was inappropriate humor in the eighties. But no one's going to step down because of it. You know what I'm saying? Now, would you choice your wife or daughter to a doctor who has a photo of themselves, regardless of how many years it was when they were in medical school bold enough to post something is offensive is that? Of a sexual nature that would make you think twice at least while I would say, I bet if having an honest conversation with a doctor who's in his sixties, and he's saying and you say, hey, doc, look, I saw this photo in your old book..
