Continuing its commitment to bring excellence to the small screen, American Masters recently celebrated the career of award-winning director Mike Nichols. Produced by longtime Mike Nichols friend entertainment icon and raconteur Julian Schlossberg this is one heckuva documentary that only Schlossberg could produce. Schlossberg and Nichols weren’t friends for no reason. They shared a unique friendship based on a unique way of looking at the world. Julian Schlossberg joins Halli for at her table to talk about the documentary, Mike Nichols and Elaine May and oh, so much more on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

AmericanMastersSchlossbergandDustinHofmannEveryone knows who Mike Nichols was. From the beginning of his career as part of the satiric duo Nichols and May, he moved on to become one of the Twentieth Century’s legendary, award-winning directors of stage and screen. But Schlossberg is himself a legend. Shows produced by Schlossberg have earned many honors, including six Tony Awards, two Obie Awards, seven Drama Desk Awards and five Outer Critics Circle Awards. His work in film is equally notable. He is the founder of major film production and distribution companies, a well-known music label and for years was the host of the beloved, nationally syndicated radio program MOVIE TALK.

FROM HOLLYWOOD TO THE WHITE HOUSE…

The story of Hollywood and Creative Artists Agency CAA

We’re taking a trip to Hollywood on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when we take a peek behind the curtain of the immensely powerful corporation known as Creative Artists Agency. In POWERHOUSE, THE UNTOLD STORY OF HOLLYWOOD’S CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY, award-winning journalist James Andrew Miller spins a tale of boundless ambition, ruthless egomania, ceaseless empire building, greed, and personal betrayal, and that’s just the beginning. And in our second half-hour, it’s FOUR BROADS TALKING politics and more with our panel of smart, feisty, broads.

The movies you watch, the TV shows you adore, the concerts and sporting events you attend—behind the curtain of nearly all of these is an immensely powerful corporation known as Creative Artists Agency. Started in 1975, when five bright and brash employees of a creaky William Morris office left to open their own strikingly innovative talent agency, CAA would come to revolutionize the entertainment industry, and over the next several decades its tentacles would spread aggressively beyond film and television into music, advertising, and investment banking. In POWERHOUSE, THE UNTOLD STORY OF HOLLYWOOD’S CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY, James Andrew Miller, the co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller THOSE GUYS HAVE ALL THE FUN: INSIDE THE WORLD OF ESPN and LIVE FROM NEW YORK, who has written for The Washington Post, the New York Times, and Vanity Fair – draws on unprecedented and exclusive access to the men and women who built and battled with CAA, and tells the story of prophetic brilliance, magnificent artistry, singular genius, entrepreneurial courage and above all, daring.

FOUR BROADS TALKING

With less than three months to go until Election Day, with Donald Trump shaking up politics as usual and with Hillary Clinton quickly rising in the polls, oh what fun our FOUR BROADS TALKING™ panel of brilliant political pundits will have when they sit down for their weekly chat on all things politics and culture in our second half hour. Look for sparks to fly with this tell it like it is panel Sheila Weller, Lisa Schiffren, Suzanna Andrews and your host, Halli Casser-Jayne.

Hollywood, film, TV, stars, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, politics, Election 2016, we have it all for you on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 17, 3 pm ET. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
