As a top producer/writer in Hollywood, Danny Zuker has had quite a ride.
He wrote and produced on shows like Arsenio, Roseanne and Just Shoot Me.
His latest project, MODERN FAMILY, is a huge winner on ABC-TV and loved by millions every week.
In addition, through Heather, we have found pockets of loyal viewership inside the FEDERAL PRISON SYSTEM.
Danny and Mark together learn a lot about the prison system and Danny learns that prisoners ask the tough questions about MODERN FAMILY.
They also reminisce about the early 90s in Hollywood, drugs, fast living and the moment at which they both laid eyes on PAMELA ANDERSON.
Mark Thompson hosts with Heather Ankeny and guest Danny Zuker.

Edge co-host Heather used to spend time (and apparently is still involved on some level with) a guy who is a prisoner in a California Federal Penitentiary where they are waaay into the TV show Modern Family.
It sets the stage for for questions about the show that come from the Federal Pen for Modern Family Exec Producer Danny Zuker (our guest in the upcoming episode)
And, of course, later Mark Thompson and Danny can't resist trying to figure out the crime that Heather's "friend" committed. This is just an excerpt.

This is the story behind Seinfeld and some other great shows from a monster insider.
As one of the founders of Castle Rock Entertainment, Glenn Padnick was responsible for trying to sell NBC on Seinfeld. Ultimately, it took A LOT of things coming together beyond just Glenn, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld to make it happen.
What he tells us on this episode of The Edge includes stuff you probably never knew.
The Seinfeld stories alone occupy much of this episode, but there's some great stuff about Married with Children and other classic TV as well.

The King of TV, Paul Goebel joins us.

Writing for TV, movies and novels...The quirky, funny, cynical world of Hollywood writer Caprice Crane
Writer Caprice Crane is funny, charmingly self-deprecating and sharp witted with a cynical edge. She's loved by audiences across a few media...They read her books, interact with her online and follow her very funny Twitter feed.
Caprice grew up in Hollywood the daughter of famous parents and gives us a sense of her world as a kid. It was one made up of hanging out with the children of the glitterati but it seems with all the normal teen crushes as the rest of the world that just played out in a bit of a different way. In fact, one of those crushes led to hunting down her teen heartthrob.
Links to Caprice's books, pictures of her folks, etc. can all be found here.
We really liked Caprice's visit and hope she'll be back--Next time she'll have to bring her own coffee because clearly Mark can not be trusted to make it.
J. Elvis Weinstein from Cinematic Titanic, Freaks and Geeks and Mystery Science Theater 3000 is a friend of the show and an accomplished wrter/producer as well so we invited him to join in on the conversation.
As always Heather Ankeny (actress and producer) co-pilots with Mark Thompson
