‘Late Shift’ Author Inspired to Write Again

Friday, February 12 by

Bill Carter is ready to write again. The New York Times TV industry writer is hard at work on a sequel of sorts to The Late Shift, the behind-the-scenes look at the dirty pool involved to succeed Johnny Carson as host of The Tonight Show. Of course, the recent late night shake-up will be the subject of his new book.

"I’m reaching out to everyone I possibly can to get every side of the story. I don’t just pick one and stick with that guy."

Carter is still writing but is said to be rushing to get the book on Kindles as soon as possible. I really couldn’t care about the book. I’m more excited for the inevitable HBO adaptation that will be aired repeatedly for 15 years.  Maybe Jimmy Kimmel could play Leno if Arzt from Lost isn’t available to do it again. (Gawker)
