Spike Feresten Interview: FOX's Late Night "Talk Show" Host on The Sound of Young America

| 2 comments
Show: 
Bullseye


Spike Feresten wrote for most of the funniest television series of the 1990s, including Seinfeld, The Late Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, and even an episode of The Simpsons. Even some of his failures -- like The Dana Carvey Show -- were beloved. Among his credits are the classic "Seinfeld" episode "The Soup Nazi."

Three years ago, he stepped in front of the camera as the host of Fox's late night series Talkshow with Spike Feresten. It's a comedy-heavy Saturday night talk show that has featured guests ranging from Tim & Eric to Tom Hanks. The show just got extended from half an hour to an hour, airing in the slot that once belonged to Mad TV.

Bullseye


Neil Gaiman is an award-winning writer in a number of forms. He broke ground in the world of comics with his 1980s series Sandman, which followed the god of sleep through a series of beautiful and sometimes terrifying adventures in the world of dreams. His books of prose include the acclaimed adult novel American Gods and the recent Newbury Medal-winning young adult book The Graveyard Book.

Gaiman's 2002 novel Coraline is the basis of Henry Selick's film of the same name. Selick is the master of stop motion animation behind the films The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach, as well as the animated sequences in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. He filmed Coraline in 3D, and talks about creating the movie's immersively beautiful visuals, and about adapting the book for the screen.
