Danny Bilson (The Balcony Series)

over 4 years ago

Hi Boppers and Goblins! This guest is close to Rick’s heart and family. Danny Bilson is a writer of film, television, and video games. He is also a professor at The University of California. Danny was Rick’s uncle's writing partner, Paul DeMeo, up until Paul’s passing in 2018. This episode is a tribute to Paul, all the brilliant work he did, and the loving dedication he had as a father, husband and amazing uncle. Paul and Danny had worked together for decades, and their long list of credits include, but is not limited to: The Rocketeer, The Flash, The Sentinel, Viper, and even Medal of Honor multiple James Bond and 007 video games. Their last project together was "Da Five Bloods," which Spike Lee directed and released a couple weeks ago on Netflix. (See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5RDTPfsLAI) Rick dives into Danny and Paul's history, how they navigated the complicated Hollywood industry, why Danny’s rollercoaster is a metaphor even he doesn’t understand, and why this last project was so important to Danny and everyone around Paul. Rick reflects on his time with uncle Paul, and Danny gives insight into how his writing partner/best friend's love of his family permeated into his work meetings (appropriate or not). We hope you like this episode and enjoy the film - a beautiful legacy at a poignant time in history . This episode is most importantly for Miranda, Annabella and Aunt Lauren.
