In his nearly four-hour Archive interview, John Moffitt describes his start in television, as a production assistant on The Ed Sullivan Show. He details rising through the ranks to become an assistant director on the show during the mid-to-late 1960s and shares his recollections of several memorable guests including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Louis Armstrong, and Bing Crosby. He talks about producing television specials Good Vibrations from Central Park and Tribute to Monty Python and discusses directing the comedy-variety series The Richard Pryor Show, the late night comedy sketch series Fridays (with guest star Andy Kaufman), and the satirical HBO series Not Necessarily the News. In addition, Moffitt recalls the formation of Moffitt/Lee Productions, speaks of directing Comic Relief specials for HBO, and comments on the challenges of producing The Emmys. Karen Herman conducted the interview on November 20, 2003 in Los Angeles, CA.
