In this episode of Poliwood, Roger and Lionel sit down again with the acclaimed producer Paul Junger Witt, the man behind such TV hits as Soap, Benson and The Golden Girls, to name just a few. It’s a follow-up to their earlier interview with Witt, when they discussed his production of Roger’s screenplay for the new film, A Better Life.
