“In addition to the fact that I’m from Kansas and he’s from Kansas, I just always found it to be such a fascinating and tragic story,” Mr. Stonestreet told Vulture. “He went from this jolly person who fell down and entertained people into a sexual deviant. It’s a true story people don’t know about, with a twist.”
Mr. Ellis, Mr. Levinson, Mr. Stonestreet, Ron West, Chris Henze, Christine Vachon and Steve Kavovit are on board as executive producers.
Bill Moyers planning new weekly show
Journalist Bill Moyers retired from weekly TV a year ago but now says he plans to return, the Associated Press reports.
He said Monday that he will be back in January with an hourlong interview show called “Moyers & Company.”
He says the weekly show will not be carried by PBS, the home for much of his past programming. It will be distributed to public TV stations by American Public Television.
He recently hosted PBS’ “Bill Moyers Journal.” That concluded in April 2010.
Mr. Moyers, 77, said his upcoming show will feature interviews with diverse voices and the goal of contributing “to the conversation of democracy.”
Mr. Moyers worked in the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson. He also was a commentator for CBS News and NBC News.
