Will "The Thryll" Phillips spent six years in Hollywood in the unglamorous position of Production Assistant, schlepping coffee and sandwiches to the makers of Family Guy  and other top shows. He also co-created a Web series called Murder Squad  that got him into talks with Comedy Central and ABC.

However, things didn't go as dreamed. Now back in central New York for the time being, he's written an e-book about his stint in Tinsel Town called Hollywood Failure, due out in October 2014. He talks to Art about where the dream went wrong, and where it goes from here.

We also get a quick word with Cody Westlake, bowling shoe expert! 57 minutes.

Art's comments: "If I got even 10 seconds of face time with a decision maker at ABC, I wouldn't stop talking about it for the rest of my life! Everyone should check out Will Phillips' Murder Squad  Web series to see what credit cards and shared dreams can accomplish. The Thryll's story is certainly interesting, and I don't think we've heard the last of him. Maybe one day we can say this show marked where it all turned around.

"All this and  a moment with Cody Westlake, bowling shoe expert? This show is gonna be HUGE!"
