Herbie J Pilato is now releasing his new book called NBC & ME: MY LIFE AS A PAGE IN A BOOK.
According to the press release:
“From May 1984 to December 1985, Herbie J Pilato worked as a Page for NBC in Burbank, California. Many Pages were excited by their unique internship and frequent showbiz interactions that were accessible and provided by a major TV network facility.
Some found work within and outside of the industry. Others found their job only uncovered a depressing, even insulting Hollywood experience. For Herbie J, it was the ultimate, as he found himself on the set of classic sitcoms like Family Ties and The Golden Girls, and remade game shows like The All New Let's Make A Deal.”
The product description notes:
“NBC & ME offers the fast-track, inside-scoop, close-up-look, and behind-the-scenes peek at my wanna'-be life with the so-called Peacock network - and in the process, becomes the first book to chronicle infamous Page department of NBC (or any other network's Page division, for that matter).
In doing so, NBC & ME rides the skirt-tails of past or recent hit television shows like A&E's Airline (which was really Pages on a Plane), Andy Dick's The Assistant, and, of course, Donald Trump's and NBC's very own hit reality show, The Apprentice - as well as the success of NBC's newly-christened Emmy-winning hit comedy, 30 Rock (which features the Peacock net's former Saturday Night Live star/writer Tina Fey and offers periodic appearances by a character who just so happens to be a Page).
So, if you're looking for a fun read, NBC & ME: MY LIFE AS A PAGE IN A BOOK fits the bill as, none other than, a real...uhm...page-turner.”
