Televisionation: Friday Fireside: National Lampoon President, Evan Shapiro, in Conversation with The iTV Doctor

Televisionation: Friday Fireside features Rick Howe, The iTV Doctor, in conversation with prominent figures from the advanced-TV/video industry.

This week’s Friday Fireside takes us on a frank, funny and borderline tasteless tour of 50 years of the World's Most Subversive Media Company, guided by National Lampoon President Evan Shapiro. Evan describes a content model designed to lampoon America's mainstream culture with a serrated knife, and a business thesis to make programs with television DNA on low-risk platforms, and quickly turn the hits into TV projects. A fascinating approach that Evan developed pre-Pandemic, and that is even more on target now. Lightning in a bottle, methinks.
