Smoldering Lust: The Inside Story of a Doomed TV Series By

Smoldering Lust: The Inside Story of a Doomed TV Series The groundbreaking inside look at the making — and unmaking — of a network TV series, back in print for the first time in thirty years. This new edition features an Afterword by Ken Levine, the Emmy and WGA award-winning writer/producer of M*A*S*H and Cheers.

“An entertaining autopsy of a failed NBC TV drama/comedy. Don't worry if you never saw or even heard of the show. Muse makes it interesting, providing colorful chapters on everything…and populates the scene-behind-the-scenes with comic episodes and likable, three-dimensional characters who really seem to love what they do.” Kirkus Reviews

“The book confirms what you suspect: Hollywood is a miserable place and sometimes good shows fail and bad shows succeed.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“An amusing narrative that is at its best when showing the nuts-and-bolts aspects of television production.” New York Times

Previously published as We Bombed in Burbank: A Joyride to Prime Time.
