But a passion for writing led Eric Kaldor to Hollywood, and he has many stories to tell about his journey! After spending some time as a sports producer, Eric Kaldor landed his first TV writing gig. He then went on to write for some of the most well known hits of the 1970's: Emergency, Kojak, The Rockford Files, and The Incredible Hulk. You'll love hearing about how TV writing worked in the 1970's, and how much it differs from the group writing of today.
