AUDIO INTERVIEW: Producer Lorne Michaels
Most of us would agree that Lorne Michaels is one of the most talented producers working in television today. He’s certainly one of the most prolific, having helmed Saturday Night Live since its inception in the 70’s.
Recently Here’s the Thing host Alec Baldwin sat down with Michaels for an extended interview about the sometimes grueling world of live television production. It’s a great talk, where they walk through Lorne’s career from the beginning all the way to today’s version of SNL. Find out why Michaels only remembers the mistakes, and how each one pre-occupies him until the “2nd drink at the party.” It’s a forty minute interview, but it’s definitely worth your time.
