Television promo and strategy greats Vince Manze and Preston Beckman masterminded Must See TV at NBC and groundbreaking FOX programming like American Idol, 24 and House. These two broadcasting giants have been tapped to roll out Discovery Plus and they’ve got stories to share about the casting of Friends, how to promote talents like Seinfeld who hate promos, the programming war that pitted Tiffany Amber Thiessen against Tiffany Amber Theissen and that time a lighting rig almost took out beloved Los Angeles weatherman Fritz Coleman. Plus Fritz and Weezy are recommending Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, Hemmingway on PBS, The Fight of Our Lives, It All Begins With a Song, and Poldark.
