In the third episode of Pretty in Podcast, I talk about John Hughes’ first script National Lampoon’s Jaws 3, People 0 (written with Tod Carroll) and clear up a lot of the myths that surround the production. Jaws 3, People 0 would have been a Joe Dante film featuring Stephen Furst, Bo Derek and Rodger Bumpass.

Special Guest stars: Gillian Young as Marilyn Sellers, and Sarah from Dress Code Cracker: The Podcast as Lurkey!

In the second episode of Pretty in Podcast, John Hughes leaves his job at Leo Burnett to be an editor for the National Lampoon in the wake of the release of National Lampoon’s Animal House, and the spin-off of the movie, Delta House.

This episode was recorded after watching Delta House episode two, “The Shortest Yard,” written by John Hughes, on YouTube. Since this episode’s release, YouTube now hosts 12 of the 13 episodes. Unfortunately, the seventh episode “The Deformity,” penned by John Hughes is still unavailable. Find them here.

In the inaugural episode (take three for those who are counting), Pretty in Podcast explores the early days of director and screenwriter John Hughes (Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, Uncle Buck, Home Alone) and his days as ad-man and freelance writer for comedians like Rodney Dangerfield, as well as a sometime writer for Playboy and National Lampoon.
