(P2) Adam Barr, Emmy Winning Producer, Deep Dives into the Business of TV, Creativity, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and more
In Part 2 of my interview with Adam Barr, Emmy winning producer, he tells me about the "stupid business of Hollywood," including how it's a one "ruled by sociopaths." (again, from Adam's mouth)
And yet, he says, "I love it more than anything, because I can create. But I don't forget that it's ephemeral."
Thank God for honesty and redemption. This is perfect for any writer, actor, director in the business or aspiring. We take a sober trip down memory lane on his various gigs, inside the insane world of writer's rooms and TV pitch meetings. and Adam shares the relevant pearls of wisdom and intimacy of it all.
"I've seen more tears in a comedy writer's room than not."
Adam shares on what it's like to work so closely with people like Julia Louis Dreyfus (Seinfeld, Christine, VEEP), Jimmy Burrows (Friends, Will and Grace, Mike and Molly, The Big Bang Theory, Mary Tyler Moore), Debra Messing (Will and Grace, Smash) and Conan O’Brien.
This two-parter is one for the record books. Thanks Adam. Enjoy everyone.
