EP106: Ken’s writing partner, David Isaacs defends himself


Ken welcomes his long-time writing partner, David Isaacs to the podcast. We discuss how we broke in, how we work, writing together vs. separately, script problem solving, and David tells his side of the prank I pulled on him.


Listen to the Hollywood & Levine podcast!

More of a Friday "comment" than question...would love to your thoughts: I fear we will soon arrive at the day when no quality shows have seasons longer than 10-13 episodes. So many great moments and supporting character explorations come when they need to do 22.

This podcast would be totally worth breaking into someone's house to use their computer to listen to it. I'm sure it contains more than my fair share of useful information. Unfortunately, I don't have the time. I have to go up onto my roof to patch a leak. (It's raining here in Los Angeles.)

Nice podcast!


Friday Question:

Did you guys think of creating an animated series like The Simpsons?

This was so good, and so funny, and so, well, loving. I don't recall hearing about the split writing of your episodes before, but the rationale was excellent and caring. That the two of you share more than just a working partnership was very clear. This might be my favorite episode. (Also, David's got a good radio voice.)

Your podcasts are ALWAYS entertaining.

This one though....wow. I can't wait for Part 2

I love the story about making your own outlines of MTM shows. It amazes me how many people don't do basic research on a potential employer, even when doing so costs them nothing. There was once a person interviewing for a job at our all-news radio station. The applicant asked us, "So, do you ever do sportscasts on this station?" And the manager replied, "Yes, at :15 and :45 past every hour, just like it says on our promos." This person clearly had not bothered to listen to even one half-hour of our programming.

I'd enjoy hearing the two of you talk about the writing process every week.
