The list of credits speaks for itself. With iconic shows like “Taxi, “The Simpsons” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” under his belt, and directorial efforts like “Broadcast News” and “Terms Of Endearment,” it’s needless to say that James L. Brooks is already a legend. And with a career spanning more than five decades, there’s no doubt he’s got a lot to say about the business, his work and so much more. Luckily, fans now have a great opportunity to hear it all from the man himself.
The Writers Guild Foundation have posted an extensive 90-minute conversation with the producer/writer/director that you can watch below, and it’s pretty much a must-watch. He’s an engaging, open book elaborating his childhood, his stepping stones into the industry and so much more. It’s the kind of wide-ranging discussion you don’t get with many folks, particularly someone with both the big and small experience that Brooks has, so it’s definitely worth a watch. Check it out below.
