Episode 16: Charles Shyer


The legendary Smokey and the Bandit celebrates its 40th anniversary this month, and who better to help us celebrate than one of the guys who worked on the film?! Writer and director Charles Shyer joins Beau to talk about his experiences as a screenwriter for the classic piece of American cinema. We’ll discuss the film’s cultural impact, gain some insight on what goes into creating a film, and Mr. Shyer tells us about the potential of a writer’s strike and what impact it could have on the film and television industry. And Beau will recap the start of his “Beaucephus’ Big ‘merican Weekend” music tour, which began with four shows in three days. All of this and more on episode 16 of The Beaucephus Broadcast!
