Production started this week in Los Angeles for The Dr. Bill Show. Produced by Illuminate Media and Emmy Award winning Executive Producer, Altus’ own Mike Weaver of Dream Weaver Entertainment. The show promises a fresh approach to the typical syndicated daytime talk show.
Dr. Bill Dorfman (aka “America’s Dentist”) will host and exec produce, with Weaver at the helm. Also exec producing will be Steven Richards and Jim Hardy of Illuminate Media. Emmy Award winning producer, Paul Marshal, will serve as Executive in Charge.
The Emmy Award-winning Weaver, originally from Altus, is the son of Fred and Karen Weaver, Altus. His grandparents, Betty and Tubby Dillingham, also live in Altus.
Weaver just completed shooting two episodes this week of the new program, and had Alex Greenlee, also of Altus, working on the set with him. Greenlee is the son of Jeff and Lisa Greenlee of Altus.
“It is really exciting to have Altus people out here with me,” said Weaver. “And I’m glad to now be in the position where I can hire staff/crew and help out those from my area of the country.”
Weaver went on to say, “I just think it’s great for those in Altus to know how much I appreciate all the educators that helped me along the way, the community that always supported me and my family for always believing in me. Altus is a very special place to me. I will always attribute my hard work, determination and ethics/morals to my Oklahoma roots.”
Weaver runs his own production company Dream Weaver Entertainment, Inc. (DWE) and also actively creates, sells and runs shows in Hollywood.
