A powerful, behind-the-scenes look at some of America’s all-time favorite television programs during their darkest hours, this study examines how various hit series have absorbed the death of a lead actor during production. Although each television program eventually resumed production, the lead actor’s death in each case had a profound impact on the surviving cast and crew and the future of the show itself. Individual chapters explore the events surrounding the deaths of Freddie Prinze (Chico and the Man), John Ritter (8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter), Redd Foxx (The Royal Family), Nicholas Colasanto (Cheers), Phil Hartman (NewsRadio), and many others. Their stories are told through first-hand accounts by those who knew them best, including many of the most talented actors, producers, writers, and directors in television over the past forty years.

Enter Barnabas Brambles: “I have a degree in lion taming from the University of Piccadilly Circus.” But does Leo the lion need taming? Will Elsa the elephant still get her gourmet peanuts? And what will Brambles say when he discovers Bert and Gert—two mice who travel with the circus on popcorn cleanup patrol? Brambles has big plans: More cities! More shows! No more free popcorn. Soon he’s made a big mess of Sir Sidney’s Circus, but Leo, Elsa, Bert, Gert, and the rest of the performers agree: The Show Must Go On! Black and white line drawings throughout.

Rodney Hartman was all things to sports journalism: informed and knowledgeable writer, editor, teacher, biographer, mentor, sounding board and confidant. When the news came on the morning of the 19th of May 2010 that he had lost his long battle with cancer, tributes began to pour in from all who had known and respected him. Rodney ('Rodders' or 'Harters' to those who knew him best) had an indelible influence on South African sports journalism and, indeed, journalism as a whole. Collected in Rodney Hartman: The Show Must Go On are some of Rodney's best columns from his time at The Star, pieces which editor Moegsien Williams describes as 'essential reading for anyone interested in sport and a master class for aspiring young journalists'. With a Foreword by Ali Bacher and Essays by Archie Henderson, Kevin McCallum and Kevin Ritchie.
