Kahnversations Podcast

New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor Amy Landecker!

 

 

So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?

We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.

In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.

In this installation of "Kahnversations," Ryan interviews Amy Landecker, who currently stars as Sarah in Jill Soloway's ensemble drama TRANSPARENT on Amazon. She is also currently developing a 1/2 hour for FX called ANGRY MILF, with Nicole Holofcener directing and producing.

Recent feature credits include Nicole Holofcener's ENOUGH SAID, Phil Morrison's ALL IS BRIGHT, and The Coen Bros' A SERIOUS MAN. On TV, credits include a recurring on FX’s LOUIE, ABC's SCANDAL, and HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM. 

In 2015, Amy will be seen in Michael Bay's Paramount feature WELCOME TO YESTERDAY.
