Remembering Michael Landon: with Geoffrey Mark, Chris Hendrie and Judith Chapman

Episode Created, Produced, Edited, and Hosted by: Steven Brittingham

 

I am extra excited about this Michael Landon special episode event. Recently, I concluded viewing the entire “Highway to Heaven” series via Netflix. Almost every episode listed Michael Landon during the opening credits as starring, written by, directed by, producer. He was doing all of this years before on “Little House on the Prairie” and even on “Bonanza.” Michael was heavily involved with his artistic projects to the fullest extent. What was his driving force? Was he striving for specific artistic goals? My three amazing guests have much to say about Michael’s incredible accomplishments, his life and who he was as a man.

The official title is: Remembering Michael Landon with Geoffrey Mark, Chris Hendrie and Judith Chapman. They are listed in order of appearance. All three interviews have specific topics but with one main theme - honoring Michael Landon as both an artist and a man.

This episode has three chapters. Here are the chapters, guests, and chapter topics:

Part One: Geoffrey Mark, a Hollywood historian who also happens to be an author among many other titles, will be sharing with all of you Michael's early life years, early acting career, and 'Bonanza'. He will then share Michael's friendship with Johnny Carson, his life as a father, and his courageous final days.

Here is what is extra exciting for me as a host. I continue to challenge myself artistically. This first chapter is not a typical conversation or question and answer format. Instead, for this chapter only, I will be mentioning various topics or questions with Geoffrey sharing the answer in a storytelling approach. Sit back and just let Geoffrey share his knowledge and stories of Michael, with only a few moments of me heard during this segment. First time ever taking this approach but it works so well for listening to Michael's biography. Geoffrey also shares his knowledge about Michael in a respectful and entertaining manner.

Part Two: Chris Hendrie, an accomplished actor who once worked with Anthony Perkins, shares his memorable role on "Little House on the Prairie" and the intense conclusion of his two-part episode appearance on that show. This is a highly regarded two-part episode that aired on "Little House on the Prairie" - and Chris shares all of it with you. He also shares his experience on 'Highway to Heaven', and Michael’s master approach to artistic projects. Hear carefully selected clips from these episodes, put together by me in a dramatic and heartfelt manner.

(Part Two and Three is a conversation/interview approach you often hear me take on every episode of Hollywood and Beyond.)

Chapter Three: The amazing and dynamic Judith Chapman shares the backstory of her memorable performance on a outstanding 'Highway to Heaven' episode. She also shares a personal story involving Michael, and his daughter Jennifer. There are some heartfelt and emotional moments with my conversation with this wonderful actress. Not to be missed!

Lastly, there will also be a special introduction to the episode by me. At the conclusion of the episode who better to end this epic episode than the man himself - Michael Landon.

There are carefully selected clips, music, and much more. I can't say enough how this is a truly emotional and informative special episode event. Running time is close to three hours in length. This is the sort of experience where you grab your favorite drinks and feel the emotional experience of "Remembering Michael Landon with Geoffrey Mark, Chris Hendrie and Judith Chapman."
