SYNOPSIS

This 30-minute single camera comedy centers on the life of 22 year-old Scott Nesterman.  He has looks, brains, a job on Wall street and still lives with his parents on the upper west side of Manhattan. From his old twin bed, he dreams of following his parent's footsteps into the soul sucking, ego crushing, financially ruinous world of Broadway. That should go well.

EVERETT'S BROADWAY BEAT

DIRECTOR

The music director of Meredith Vieira’s Daytime Talk Show, Everett Bradley, was often pulled into special on-camera segments. The pilot of Everett’s Broadway Beat was created to be part of a weekly series within the Meredith Vieira talkshow where Everett would interview Broadway stars in their dressing rooms. In this premiere episode, Everett interviews Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara backstage while she is in the midst of her starring role in Lincoln Center’s production of The King & I.
