Hi, thanks for joining us on Hometown to Hollywood today! Today my guests on the Hometown to Hollywood podcast are television writers and producers John Beck and Ron Hart.



John Beck and Ron Hart also serve as Creators, Executive Producers and Showrunners of the award-nominated Disney Channel series, “Liv and Maddie.”

The team is also known for their work on “The Hughleys,” “According to Jim,” “Shake It Up!,” “Pair of Kings, “Disjointed,” “Knight Squad”, and “Fuller House.”

We dive deep into what really goes on behind the scenes of creating a new TV show, and how involved producers can be in the casting process. Beck and Hart share some wisdom for actors of any age, as well as writers who want to break into writing for television. And we laugh a lot too– these guys are comedy writers, after all. Join us!


No one can promise success in this business, but you can certainly raise your odds by getting advice from the best sources. If you’re ready to get some coaching on how to help your kid break into acting for film or TV, or are already down the road but stuck, book a consultation with me on my consultation page. For not much more than the price of an hour with an acting coach, you can get peace of mind, and a detailed action plan.

Remember—the future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.
