Tonight the KERN Krew and I talk to genius screenwriter Bryan Fuller, who worked on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and UPN’s “Star Trek: Voyager” before he created Showtime’s “Dead Like Me,” Fox’s “Wonderfalls” and ABC’s “Pushing Daisies.”
Fuller also wrote all the best episodes of NBC’s “Heroes,” which is one of the reasons NBC put him in charge of “Hannibal,” a midseason series about the period in Dr. Lecter’s pre-“Silence of the Lambs” life – when he solved some murders (partnered with FBI profiler and future frenemy Will Graham) while secretly committing others.
At 8 p.m. this coming Friday “Mockingbird Lane,” Fuller’s $10 million pilot for the “Munsters” reboot, airs on NBC. It was directed by Bryan Singer (“Apt Pupil,” “X Men,” “Superman Returns,” “Valkyrie”), who also helmed the excellent pilot for “House.”
“Ask Mr. KERN” airs tonight in its regular 8:05 p.m. to 10 p.m. PT timeslot.

Call in drunk, as I always do, but watch your language. This is not a podcast. This monster goes out over the air on all 50,000 watts of Southern California’s KERN-AM.
