060 Paul Stupin - The Twins, the Trustee, and the Very Big Trip

According to Wikipedia, Paul Stupin “was recruited to the fledgling Fox Network as executive vice president of series programming, serving there from 1989 to 1992. Stupin’s greatest legacy was bringing a twenty-nine-year-old screenwriter, Darren Star, to producer Aaron Spelling. Star had ideas of a high school drama and Spelling, for the first time since the 1960s, had not one show on the air. The result of their partnership was Beverly Hills, 90210.”

Paul now serves as the executive producer of Switched at Birth, and he previously executive produced Dawson’s Creek. We paired our discussion of the 90210 episode “The Twins, the Trustee, and the Very Big Trip,” with our interview with Paul about his time working at the network.
