Jay Moriarty, TV writer and producer
In From Cincinnati’s inaugural edition we welcome Jay Moriarty, television writer and producer – now author (see below) – and a guy who is definitely From Cincinnati.
After some years learning the ropes – but not too many – he found a TV show and a man he would like to work for – none other than the legendary Norman Lear and his groundbreaking TV show “All in the Family.” That would later translate into working on other iconic shows like “The Jeffersons,” “Good Times” and “What’s Happening Now,” among many, many others.
>Jay has written an account of his life that is a brisk read with some great tips for aspiring television scriptwriters – or people who just remember and loved the iconic TV shows he helped get on the air. Get a copy of “Honky in the House: Writing and Producing The Jeffersons” (affiliate link) on Amazon. It’s also available on Kindle.
