Curtain Call with David Spatz is the only television program that takes viewers backstage on location to America’s showrooms, concert venues and sets for casual conversations with entertainers.
Curtain Call goes beyond the 30-second sound bite and reaches for more than the hype and the sensational. The Emmy Award-winning program has removed the audience, stripped the set bare to backstage reality and engages the guest – and, ultimately, the viewer - with a conversation that’s both genuine and revealing.
Award-winning Journalist David J. Spatz, who’s been covering the American entertainment scene for more than 30 years, hosts Curtain Call. The show is a natural extension of his columns that have appeared regularly in publications including the Courier Post, the New York Daily News, the Atlantic City Weekly, the Atlantic City Press, the Las Vegas Sun and the Hollywood Reporter.
“The best compliments we’ve received have been when guests tell us they were so caught up in the conversation they forgot there were two cameras recording every word,” Spatz says.
Currently airing Saturdays at 6 p.m. on Atlantic City’s NBC affiliate, WMGM-TV40, Curtain Call guests have represented a broad cross section of the entertainment industry and include Bill Cosby, Jay Leno, Regis Philbin, Larry The Cable Guy, Ron White, Dennis Miller, Lisa Lampanelli, Lewis Black, Larry King, Joan Rivers and Frank Caliendo; musicians like Smokey Robinson, Steven Van Zandt, Trace Adkins, G-Love and Sully Erna; TV casts from the Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire and great TV chefs like Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Michael Mina, Michael Schulson, Guy Fieri and Paula Dean.
Curtain Call with David Spatz is produced by Atlantic Coast Productions, LLC. Jake Glassey, Jr. is the show’s producer, Tom Morgenweck, Jr. Associate Producer and Editior and Dave Pashuck is Production Supervisor.
