Visual History with Doug Quick

Interviewed by: Dency Nelson

Veteran stage manager Doug Quick (The Price is Right; Archie Bunker’s Place; The Young and the Restless) discusses his creative contributions to episodic programming, daytime serials and variety shows, and the extensive rehearsal and planning that goes into the production of game shows.

Stage Manager Doug Quick describes his behind-the-scenes responsibilities on The Price is Right, and a suggestion he made for rehearsals 25 years ago that led to a permanent change in their shooting process.

Quick fondly recalls Stage Managing The Young and the Restless when it was still a half-hour show shot live-to-tape and in sequence.

Quick explains the Stage Manager's role in early live and live-to-tape sports broadcasts including the Muhammad Ali v. Leon Spinks fight in 1978.
