Earlier this year, Eric Braeden celebrated his fortieth anniversary playing complex self-made billionaire Victor Newman on the popular CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless. In an industry that can be as uncertain as network television, Eric has always been very grateful not only to have the same job every day for the past four decades, but to play a character that has been allowed to evolve throughout that time, and whose drive and resilience continues to resonate with viewers around the globe.
We’ll ask Eric to reflect on his years playing Victor, plus we’ll talk about some of his other notable roles in film and television, including the joy he felt when he stepped onto the set of Den of Thieves (2018), the feature-length crime thriller written and directed by his son, Christian Gudegast. Eric Braeden will join us in our second hour.
If you’re looking for a good read during this period of social distancing, may we suggest Eric’s memoir, I’ll Be Damned: How My Young and Restless Life Led Me to America’s #1 Daytime Drama, a classic immigration story that embodies the American Dream. Born and raised in Germany at the height of World War II, Eric arrived in the United States in 1959 unaware of the atrocities of the Holocaust. That changed dramatically one day in 1961, when he watched the film Mein Kampf—an experience that not only awakened him politically, but left him determined to redress the wrongs of his homeland and to fighting prejudice not only against Germans, but all ethnicities. Eric tells his story candidly and very movingly; you will enjoy it as much as I did.
Also this week: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen will join us via Skype for a special edition of This Week in TV History that looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected not just the television industry, but all walks of our daily lives around the world.
Plus: We will pay tribute to our friend Susan Kesler. Author of The Wild, Wild West: The Series, and one of the top editors in network television over the past three decades, Sue passed away on Thursday, March 19 after a brief bout with cancer.
