Alex Kurtzman: People Like Us

Hosted by

Alex Kurtzman got his start in television, writing episodes for Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess.  He and his longtime collaborator, Roberto Orci, went on to create the series Fringe, and co-wrote big blockbusters including Star Trek and Transformers.  Admittedly, championing a small-budget passion project was quite the transition, and Kurtzman let the script stew for eight years. He speaks with Elvis about the original title for People Like Us, the personal experience that inspired the film, plus, Elvis' favorite episode of Hercules: Porkules.
