Performers' Television Credits,1948¿2000: Volume 3by David M. Inman, David Inman
This enormous, oversize, three-volume reference of performers' television credits (United States) is for serious researchers and writers who cannot afford not to have the most complete information available anywhere. The data begin in 1948, with the advent of serious network television broadcasting, and go through May 31, 2000, the end of the 1999–2000 TV season. Death information is included up to the end of 2000.
Included are persons appearing on dramatic and comedy programs, made-for-TV movies and miniseries, game and quiz shows, performance-oriented talk shows and variety shows. For logical reasons, persons who appeared on shows with very little performance activity are excluded (award shows, sporting events, parades, news broadcasts, and reality programming are examples).
A performer's birthplace, birth date and date of death are listed (where possible), along with information about his or her best-known television roles, Emmy Awards won, descriptions of memorable career moments, appearances on soap operas, talk, game and variety shows. As a bonus, information is provided on actors' best-known writing, directing and producing credits.
