Releasing Bernie Here’s a story that’s stranger than fiction… Bernie Tiede, a murderer played by Jack Black a few years ago in the Richard Linklater film Bernie , has been released from prison. In 1996, Tiede confessed to shooting a reclusive widow named Marjorie Nugent in the small East Texas town of Carthage. Linklater turned the story into a movie released in 2011. Now, Tiede has been released, under a few conditions, including a stipulation that he’ll live in Linklater’s garage apartment in Austin. How did this happen?
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
