EP246: Meet comedy writer Dave Hackel

Dave Hackel is the creator of BECKER, and worked for years on FRASIER, WINGS, and many other shows. This week he talks about breaking into the business on game shows and has a hilarious Truman Capote story (who doesn’t?). Also, some great things he learned along the way coming up through the ranks of sitcom writing and producing. You’ll laugh and shudder.

BECKER is the reason I found your blog, Ken. I was surfing the net trying to find out why Terry Farrell was let go and stumbled on your Friday Questions. And I HAVE heard of Delaware, Ohio. President Rutherford B. Hayes was born there!

What a great guest / interview. Sounds like Dave's parents did a fantastic job of raising their Hackel.
