EJ Podcast “Scratch the Surface” with True Blood’s Brian Buckner

Below is the next “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guest today True Blood’s Showrunner, Brian Buckner.

This is, in my opinion, a very insightful interview with Mr. Buckner.


Brian Buckner’s Assistant and Associate Producer Khadija Brockington, EJ Scott and Brian Buckner

Brian “Bucky” Buckner has been a writer on HBO’s True Blood since the show began and served as show runner for almost the last two seasons.

Ej and Brian talk about:

  • The writer’s room,
  • getting hired and working with Alan Ball,
  • the transition after Alan left,
  • the ups and downs of being in charge and the decision maker,
  • the sacrifices that must be made,
  • he also worked on Spin City,
  • where he was nicknamed Bucky,
  • working on Friends, his brief stint as an actor,
  • his parents divorce,
  • and other family issues,
  • plus the final season of True Blood.
