Bochco Blasts Broadcast Nets
August 21, 2008 9:28 AM
In an interview Monday with Forbes.com, Emmy Award-winning producer Steven Bochco explains why he’s taking his latest drama, “Raising the Bar,” to cable net TNT instead of to one of the broadcast networks.
Bocho said the broadcast networks have “devolved,” and that they are overrun with programming that he has no interest in producing, namely reality shows. He also accused the broadcast networks of micromanaging every single aspect of production.
Clearly, Bochco, who produced “Hill Street Blues,” “L.A. Law” and “NYPD Blue,” has had it with the broadcast networks.
Honestly, what was the last prime-time program you watched on a broadcast network?
So kudos to Bochco for saying what the broadcast networks need to hear.
