Screenwriter, mystery novelist, and co-creator of Where the Bears Are
I met Rick Copp one day when one of my best friends from my high school days came to town to stay. They were friends and Rick had given him a lift up to SB from LA, so the three of us had lunch. Years later, Mr. Copp is a guest on our show, which I recorded while in Palm Springs.
A few years back, Rick and two of his writing/acting buddies got the idea to write a comedy murder mystery featuring their type of man, and so Where the Bears Are came to be. At first shot on a shoestring budget, it's turned into an international success of a web series. It's rude, naughty, camp, and very silly. They are set to premiere Season 4 this coming Sunday, August 23. Here's the trailer (NSFW!)
Rick Copp has been writing for television since he joined the writers room of The Golden Girls at age 24. He went on to co-write The Brady Bunch Movie, as well as many episodes of childrens TV including Teen Titans and Scooby Doo.
This episode has more laughs per minute than a nitrous oxide factory, so please enjoy!
