Salon Tonight with Producer Terry Anzaldo

Monday, November 14th, 2011
Hollywood Salon
Special Guest:  Super-Producer Terry AnzaldoMusic, entertainment and sports are driving forces in Hollywood. Our November guest is a driven super-producer who has his capable hands crafting star careers and projects in all three arenas …

Tonight, the NCC extends a Big Red welcome to Terry Anzaldo! Whether it’s hit records, one-of-a-kind TV productions or celebrity-studded sporting events, Terry has been there and continues to do all of that. Meet him tonight at the Salon and discover what it takes to be an independent producer, content developer, promoter and talent manager at the industry’s highest levels.

A native of Omaha, Terry Anzaldo started his production company Good Guy Entertainment with his twin brother, Anthony, a few years back. Together, they have collaborated with many of the best-known classic and current iconic stars in American pop-culture history.

He previously worked as an executive with Madonna‘s Maverick Records label, where he chiefly was responsible for the on-air radio success of the Alanis Morissette album “Jagged Little Pill.” A taste of Terry’s other diverse accomplishments include managing the career of Barry Williams (Greg Brady of “Brady Bunch” fame), producing TV reunion shows for “Dallas” and “The Brady Bunch,” producing and casting reality TV’s “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” and working with talent on shows such as “Dancing with the Stars” and “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Among Terry’s past and present radio productions are shows with Boyz II Men, Eddie Money, Tone Loc, Henry Rollins, Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Henry Rollins and actor C. Thomas Howell. His war stories and wisdom about branching out as an indie executive in Los Angeles should prove a riveting night at the Salon.

See you at the Salon TONIGHT: Monday, November 14th.  Tony Moton will be guest hosting.

Salons are a great way to network, catch up with old friends and new ones, and have a taste of home in Hollywood.

Before his gig with Nationwide, Bob was a regular on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Chappelle’s Show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. He’s also been featured in national commercials for AOL, Microsoft, Staples, Domino’s Pizza and many others.

We’re thrilled to have Bob join us as our special guest at the Salon tonight, Monday June 13th. Come learn his secrets of making comedy look easy.

Also tonight, filmmaker Mike Montgomery (who guested after winning his big Coca Cola Filmmaker’s Award last year) will be showing us a sneak peek from his beautiful new film, The Garden.  You’ve never seen anything like his take on the Eden story — it’ll be a great treat to share in it’s debut.  And find out how YOU can help be a part of it.

Holt McCallany in the role of boxer Patrick “Lights” Leary

Holt McCallany stars in FX’s Lights Out

Creighton Prep grad and Nebraska native Holt McCallany stars in a new boxing drama Lights Out, which premiers on the FX Network Tuesday night, January 9, 2011, co-staring Stacy Keach.

From the Omaha World-Hearald, January 8, 2011, By Bob Fischbach.

Lights Out is the story of a struggling former heavyweight champion tempted to return to the ring to support his wife and daughters, a part McCallany says he was born to play–as a kid in Omaha McCallany took up boxing with his younger brother, now-deceased Golden Gloves champ Michael McAloney and as the son of show biz parents McCallany was drawn to acting at an early age.

Among his inspirations: “Alexander Payne was a year ahead of me at Prep,” McCallany said of the Oscar-winning director-screenwriter. “He was an honors student, considered brilliant. I was considered a juvenile delinquent who would amount to nothing.”

McCallany is the son of legendary actress and cabaret singer Julie Wilson, an Omaha native, and the late Broadway actor and Tony-winning producer Michael McAloney (“Borstal Boy”).
