Herbie J Pilato and Mark Villano, with Eric Scott & Irene Tsu, present Retro Active Television and Insight: The Series

Retro Active Television: An In-Depth Perspective on Classic TV’s Social Circuitry: “Ever wonder what the people who bring us our TV entertainment are thinking? Television and pop culture historian and author Herbie J Pilato has, and now takes readers on a provocative and entertaining look into the agenda behind TV shows and the resulting trends. Even when it seemed television programming was primarily mindless, there was serious thought behind what audiences were presented. The networks, after all, believe in giving the people what they want, even when the people should have known better. We’ve spent years of our lives in front of the tube; isn’t it about time we found out what makes that tube tick? Retro Active Television will enlighten you.”  –    Marc Cushman (Screenwriter, Author)

Insight, the Series - A Hollywood Priest's Groundbreaking Contribution to Television History: Created by Fr. Ellwood Kieser, known as the "Hollywood Priest," INSIGHT brought together some of the best television writers, directors, and actors of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Together, they produced a memorable, Emmy-winning series that dealt with the moral implications of contemporary issues and broke new ground in religious broadcasting.
