My Childhood Television Favorites – Epic Mockumentary

  • This is for anyone who grew up in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
  • This is for those good people with a healthy sense of humour.
  • This is for those pop culture junkies who know how to appreciate a good vintage video without judgement.

I remember this era of television fondly. Friends, Will and Grace, Fraiser, Scrubs, every incarnation of Law And Order, etc. THURSDAY NIGHTS! My only regret is that I didn’t get into The West Wing sooner. But not to fear….I’m all caught up now and it’s quickly become a favorite.

The Zucker Follies was an unprecedented network promo that aired at the 2002 Upfronts. Intended as a “mockumentary”, it was shot in 16mm for a gritty documentary feel! Megan Mullally is hilarious as Karen Walker from Will & Grace. Supporting cast included Jeff Zucker, David Spade, Martin Sheen, Jay Leno, Zach Braff, Kelsey Grammer, Aaron Sorkin, Allison Janney, Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, Jesse L. Martin, Matthew Perry, Donald Faison, Jill Hennessy and the late and incredible Jerry Orbach.

Once again, I am amused and impressed by the creativity of people…and the sense of humour of these amazing actors. The perfect way to spend some time on a rainy afternoon.
