When I was 18, I came to UCLA to go to college. I was working on a book called UNSOLD TELEVISION pilots and I cold-called Garry Marshall for an interview. To my shock, he not only answered the phone, he immediately invited me to his office, which turned out to be an apartment in Burbank or Studio City. We spoke for several hours. I was in awe. I couldn't believe how friendly. funny, and open he was... or that he would devote so much of his valuable time to help some kid he'd never met. A few years later, I interviewed him for an article I was doing for Electronic Media (later renamed Television Age) and he shocked me again... this time because he not only remembered me, but said he loved my book. Most people will remember him for the great TV shows and movies he did. I will remember him for being a mensch.

Saw the new TARZAN. It's shot like a Claritin commerical but is not nearly as fast-paced or engaging. Alexander Skarsgard looked like he was on tranquilizers for the entire movie. So did I. That's where the resemblence between us ends.

Its a sad commentary on Hollywood that the 2 big movies opening on Friday are old TV shows: STAR TREK & ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. It's a sad commentary on me that I want to see them both.

In the literary world, The Brothers Karamozov have had their day in the spotlight, but in 2016 it’s all about the Brothers Goldberg.

Students writing term papers and essays these days have to pass anti-plagiarism software screening before turning them in. Maybe Melania should have used one, too. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/20/us/politics/melania-trump-speech.html?_r=0
Ms. Trump’s remarks at the convention came under scrutiny over similarities to those delivered by Mrs. Obama at the Democratic convention in 2008.

Story
Tagline
Writer. Producer. Wickedly charming.
Introduction
Lee Goldberg is an ex-Navy SEAL, freelance Sexual Surrogate and a professional Pierce Brosnan impersonator. 

Okay, that's not true. But he wants this biography to be really exciting, so pay attention. If things bog down, I've been instructed to add a car chase or some explicit sex. 

Here's the real story. Lee Goldberg writes books and television shows. 

His mother wanted him to be a doctor, and his grandfather wanted him to go into the family furniture business. Instead, he put himself through UCLA as a freelance journalist, writing for such publications as American Film, Starlog, Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times Syndicate, The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle (He also wrote erotic letters to the editor for Playgirl at $25-a-letter, but he doesn't tell people about that, he just likes to boast about those "tiffany" credits). 

He published his first book .357 Vigilante (as "Ian Ludlow," so he'd be on the shelf next to Robert Ludlum) while he was still a UCLA student. The West Coast Review of Books called his debut "as stunning as the report of a .357 Magnum, a dynamic premiere effort," singling the book out as "The Best New Paperback Series" of the year. Naturally, the publisher promptly went bankrupt and he never saw a dime in royalties. 

Welcome to publishing, Lee. 

His subsequent books include the non-fiction books Successful Television Writing and Unsold Television Pilots ("The Best Bathroom Reading Ever!" San Francisco Chronicle) as well as the novels My Gun Has Bullets ("It will make you cackle like a sitcom laugh track," Entertainment Weekly), Beyond the Beyond ("Outrageously entertaining," Kirkus Reviews), and The Man With The Iron-On Badge ("
As dark and twisted as anything Hammett or Chandler ever dreamed up" Kirkus Reviews)

"Take me now," she moaned, "you hot writer stud." 

She tore off her clothes and tackled him onto the floor, unable to control her raging lust. Nothing excited her more than being around a writer with a big list of books. 

Got your attention again? Good. I don't know about you, but I was starting to nod off. Where was I? Oh yes... 

Goldberg broke into television with a freelance script sale to "Spenser: For Hire." Since then, his TV writing & producing credits have covered a wide variety of genres, including sci-fi (SeaQuest), cop shows (Hunter), martial arts (Martial Law), whodunits (Diagnosis Murder, Nero Wolfe), the occult (She-Wolf of London), kid's shows (R.L. Stine's The Nightmare Room), T&A (Baywatch), comedy (Monk) and utter crap (The Highwayman). His TV work has earned him two Edgar® Award nominations from the Mystery Writers of America. 

His two careers, novelist and TV writer, merged when he began writing the "Diagnosis Murder" series of original novels, based on the hit CBS TV mystery that he also wrote and produced. And he also writes novels based on "Monk," another show he's worked on. 

But perhaps he's best known for his pioneering work mapping the human genome and negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. 

Goldberg lives in Los Angeles with his wife and his daughter and still sleeps in "Man From UNCLE" pajamas.
