Susan Silver and The Girl Who Came Gift-Wrapped
Original Airdates: Sept. 11-13, 2021
TVC 553.3: Part 2 of a conversation that began on our last program with Susan Silver, one of the original writers for The Mary Tyler Moore Show and one of the very first female writers to break the glass ceiling in the world of TV comedy. Topics this segment include The Girl Who Came Gift-Wrapped, the romantic comedy starring Karen Valentine, Richard Long, and Louise Sorel that Susan wrote for the ABC Movie of the Week in 1973. While very much a product of its time, Girl still holds up today because of the strong characters that Susan created.
Susan’s memoir, Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets and Sitcoms, is available as a print edition through Amazon.com and as an audiobook through Audible.com. Susan’s radio commentary, Susan Says with Susan Silver, is heard on RobinHoodRadio.com and on Apple Podcasts.
