Esopus event at Museum of Moving Image

February 23, 2011

In 2005, Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King co-created The Comeback, a penetrating and often brutal satire of reality TV, sitcoms, and show business in general. The series was cancelled, but quickly developed a cult following.

After a screening of the first episode, Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky (executive producer and actor on The Comeback) discuss the conception, execution, and untimely demise of the series with Tod Lippy, editor of Esopus, which featured an interview with Kudrow and director/producer Michael Patrick King about The Comeback in Esopus 15: Television. The conversation examines how the show foresaw the trajectory of the reality TV phenomenon and how it suffered in ratings for being ahead of its time.
