Author, My Peacock Tale: Secrets Of An NBC Page
This week, Ira spoke with Emmy-nominated show-business veteran, longtime host, writer, producer and personality Shelley Herman, author of My Peacock Tale: Secrets Of An NBC Page. In this Hollywood episode of “Ira’s Everything Bagel,” Shelley talks about why the book is a love letter to her fellow pages; the unique time and place of working at NBC Burbank in the 70’s; why Harry Chapin is her hero; why her biggest lesson came from a dead guy she never knew; how she put the book together and picked one chapter for her two friends to okay; and lessons she hopes others learn.
A longtime writer and TV game show production veteran (“Supermarket Sweep”), Shelley Herman is a southern California native who has made a life in show business as a creator and performer, starting as a contestant on “The Dating Game” and eventually writing more than 1000 hours of game shows. Married to actor Randall Carver, the LA resident has been witness to fascinating chapters of TV industry history, and knows that the tales told in My Peacock Tale are just the beginning.
