Writer, director & producer Brian Volk-Weiss on the new series “The Center Seat: 55 Years Of Star Trek,” “The Movies That Made Us” & more

November 7, 2021

Back in July 2021, I first had the pleasure of interviewing writer, director, producer and studio head Brian Volk-Weiss for a second time. He was then promoting “Gates McFadden InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are?,” a new podcast series starring former “Star Trek” actress Gates McFadden. Since then, Volk-Weiss has overseen and released another season of the popular Netflix docuseries “The Toys That Made Us.” The founder and current CEO of Comedy Dynamics also continues to be the CEO of The Nacelle Company. Earlier this year, The Nacelle Company also made headlines when it announced that Volk-Weiss and Dwayne Johnson had teamed up for the new Disney+ series for “Behind The Attraction.”

Simply put, few people in entertainment are not only as prolific as Brian Volk-Weiss while still quality-centric. I explored this idea and plenty more within our follow-up conversation on November 5, 2021, as embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
