About this interview

In his five-hour Archive interview, Bob Markell discusses his early work designing sets for landmark shows, Danger, Studio One and Playhouse 90. He describes winning the first Emmy awarded for Art Direction in 1954 for You Are There and details how he became an Emmy-winning producer on shows including The Defenders and Bicentennial Minutes. Markell discusses his work on the show Stage 67 and his involvement with the Emmy winning shorts show, The Bicentennial Minutes. He recalls developing and producing the miniseries The Dane Curse, The Tenth Level and movie-of-the-week, Twenty Shades of Pink. He recounts becoming Vice President of Creative Affairs at CBS and being promoted to Vice President of Miniseries at CBS and shares what he's been up to since leaving the television business. Sunny Parich conducted the interview on April 18, 1998 in Shelter Island, NY.

"We were free to do anything we wanted, to say anything we wanted. And we weren't afraid of being fired or anything like that. We kind of knew our limits so we weren't that extravagant. The Golden Age of Television was an age where everybody was learning. There were no experts, so there was nobody to tell us what to do."
