Screenwriter Richard Smith & Nero d’Avola

EWant to remember what life was like pre-COVID? Tune into this episode (recorded in early March) with screenwriter Richard Smith as the Hollywood Uncorked panel engages in forbidden activity like sitting face-to-face, sharing several bottles of Italian Nero d’Avola, and wantonly leaving the house. Along the way they talk about Smith’s screenwriting career, which got off to an auspicious start when his very first film project, Leonard, went from British short to premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. This was followed by his feature-length writing debut, Trauma, starring Colin Firth, as well as Smith’s latest project, The Garden of Evening Mists, based on the acclaimed Malaysian novel and currently rolling out across HBO platforms in Asia.

Comedian Zane Lamprey & Ribera del Duero

EIn the world of drinking-based entertainment, there is one man who reigns as the unquestioned king: Zane Lamprey, whose alcohol-driven travel cable shows Three Sheets and Drinking Made Easy pretty much invented the genre itself. Lamprey joins this truly hilarious episode to help drink through three bottles of Ribera del Duero from Spain as he regales the panel with tales of his favorite filmed drinking adventures from around the world, his new beer podcast Crafts-n-Crafts, and his infamous on-air drinking tour of Tom’s college town of Missoula, Montana.

Screenwriter/Author Adam Jay Epstein & Paso Robles Wines

EWhat’s the best way to backstop a career in the notoriously topsy-turvy world of screenwriting? Adam Jay Epstein (Not Another Teen Movie, Extreme Movie) does it with his “night job” of authoring best-selling fantasy and sci-fi books for the middle grades. While helping the panel drink through three bottles of wine from California’s fast-growing Paso Robles region, Epstein talks about the process and economics of creating book franchises like The Familiars, Starbounders and Snared, his love of executing on big ideas, and the time the his Revenge of the Nerds remake totally fell apart after four weeks of shooting.

Manager John Beach & Corner Store Wines

EJohn Beach has made a niche for himself in Hollywood by getting early access to books and connecting them to writers and producers for film and TV adaptation. With guest host Mike Cohen sitting in, Beach spends this episode talking about what he looks for in a book that might be right for the screen and his well-hidden past as a movie poster model for films like Grosse Pointe Blank and White Squall. Meanwhile, the panel dives into three surprisingly delicious (and decidedly random) wines from the corner store nearby after Tom forgot to pick up the wines they planned on drinking for the night.

Cougar Town Co-Creator Kevin Biegel & Dolcetto

ECougar Town began as a joke between co-creators Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel: Could you actually make a show with a name that bad? Well, they did just that—with the resulting show running for six seasons and more than 100 episodes on ABC and TBS. Biegel joins the Hollywood Uncorked panel and the week’s guest host, screenwriter Karen McCullah (Legally Blonde), to talk all things Cougar Town while appropriately helping swig back three bottles of Dolcetto. Along the way, Biegel chats about getting his start on Scrubs, the pain and joy of his short-lived sitcom Enlisted, and how writing for TV has changed in his decade-plus in entertainment.

Producer Matt Gross & Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

EVeteran producer Matt Gross boasts credits across all genres and platforms, from movies like Fired Up and Across the Universe to TV projects like Sons of Liberty, Dirty Sexy Money and Day Break. Fortunately for the Hollywood Uncorked panel, Matt is almost as passionate about wine as he is about entertainment—especially about the wines in this episode, Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Joined by guest co-host and producer of the new Creepshow series Brian Witten, Gross talks about his transition from movies to television, what makes a good producer, and gets honest about the most disappointing thing that ever happened to him in Hollywood.

Screenwriter Brian Duffield & Oregon Pinot Noir

EBrian Duffield has made a name as one of the most versatile screenwriters in Hollywood—from making waves at age 23 with his first comedy spec Your Bridesmaid Is A Bitch to writing the McG-directed Netflix thriller The Babysitter to co-writing Insurgent, the uber-successful second installment of the Divergent franchise. As he joins the panel and guest co-host Arvind Ethan David to drink through three perfect-for-fall bottles of Oregon Pinot Noir, Brian talks about the emotional rollercoaster that is writing in Hollywood, the horrible day job at Lucky Jeans he got to quit after selling his first script, and the infamously plagued production of his first produced screenplay, the Natalie Portman-starrer Jane Got A Gun.

Novelist Tommy Wallach & Unique Blends

EIt wasn’t enough for author Tommy Wallach to simply write the New York Times-bestseller We All Looked Up. He also had to go and record an entire album of original music to go with it. Turns out, music and writing are just two of Wallach’s many talents, which also include devising the popular escape room, Lab Rat, which was recently named the 8th best escape room in the world. In this episode, Hollywood Uncorked honors Wallach with three bottles of blends as unique as he is, while guest co-host Arvind Ethan David joins in a discussion of how Wallach got his start in writing, the painful process of getting a novel to the screen, and the ever-evolving nature of interactive storytelling.
