PJTV: Poliwood Interviews Producer Paul Junger Witt on His Storied Career
July 23, 2011 - 12:15 pm
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.
This time around, the focus is on Witt’s television career. How did a show about four elderly women become such a hit with younger viewers? And how has the television landscape changed in the past 20-30 years?
“We all have a fear of being old and alone, and here were these four women who were anything but alone…And these women could deliver!”
– Paul Witt, Executive Producer of “The Golden Girls.”
