Episode 95. Director’s Court: The Case of Steven J. Cannell

dcscCourt is back in session! This time, Tom and Derrick take an hour to celebrate the life, creativity, genius, and work of one of the most prolific television writer / producers: Steven J. Cannell. Join the Boys Outta Brooklyn as they discuss how Cannell used genre conventions to explore character, pioneered now-accepted television storytelling tropes, and recreated himself when his stock was declining. All this, plus Derrick wants to hide the orange juice, lil’ Tom gets to stay up late, and talk about how NBC doesn’t have the guts to reboot The Rockford Files… mere days before NBC announced a new version of this landmark series! You don’t wanna get on no plane, so get to clicking!
