SF Sketchfest Great Collaborators Series
Tribute to Murphy Brown
Live in Person: Candice Bergen and Diane English
Interviewed by Connie Chung
In this special tribute to Murphy Brown, SF Sketchfest welcomes award-winning creator, writer and producer Diane English and "Murphy Brown" herself, acclaimed actress Candice Bergen to the Castro Theatre stage for a look back at the remarkable ten year run of the groundbreaking CBS series. Murphy Brown received sixty-two Emmy nominations, eighteen Emmy Awards (including two for Best Comedy Series), a Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series, and the George Foster Peabody Award for Significant and Meritorious Achievement. Diane English recently received the prestigious Crystal Award from Women in Film for writing, producing and directing The Women, an adaptation of the iconic play and film. Candice Bergen is "a beautiful actress who projects intelligence, humor, vulnerability and self-reliance – all more or less simultaneously," wrote critic Vincent Canby in the New York Times. She has received multiple awards and extraordinary critical acclaim for performances in film and television including Getting Straight, Carnal Knowledge, Starting Over, Boston Legal and many more. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see these two great artists discuss their collaborative process.
