One of the most prolific and admired sitcom directors in TV history — and the go-to guy for pilots — reflects on how Mary Tyler Moore helped him to break into the biz, what he learned from the 15 years he divided between 'Taxi' and 'Cheers' (he co-created the latter) and how he propelled NBC's 'Must See TV' era with 'Frasier,' 'Friends' and 'Will & Grace.'

But first: Natalie Jarvey, THR's digital media editor, joins Scott to discuss her recent profile of Vice Media and its new CEO Nancy Dubuc, who ran A&E Networks until Shane Smith hired her to right the ship of his $5.7 billion youth-centric media company.

Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
