 CALLING ALPHA CONTROL: KEVIN BURNS 

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: We welcome Mr. Kevin Burns to Alpha Control for an exclusive interview. Kevin is a man who has been called the ‘Keeper of the flame’, maybe I should just say the Keeper…of all things Irwin Allen, AS WELL AS an executive producer & creator of the new Netflix Lost in Space series, which premiered on 13th of April 2018. He’s joining us today to share his lifelong LOVE of the ORIGINAL series and of course talk about the new reboot.

KEVIN'S BIO: Kevin grew up in upstate NY & by the time was Will Robinson’s age, he was already a Big Fan of LIS, watching it during its first run broadcast. That started him on a journey that would result in personal friendships with the cast members of the original series, as well as Sheila Allen, Irwin’s widow & ultimately culminate in this beautiful new Netflix LIS series. Along the way, he maintained his love of the series during his college years in New York & Boston, his teaching career at Boston University & his later move to LA where he landed a marketing & promotions job at 20th Century Fox TV. Later Kevin established several Hollywood production companies, was nominated for numerous Emmy Awards, won two including one for the superb A&E series Biography. He was also writer, producer or director on many highly acclaimed documentaries, including Empire of Dreams the story of the Star Wars trilogy, Indiana Jones the Ultimate Quest, The Fantasy Worlds of Irwin Allen, Lost in Space Forever & many, many more…Indeed, Kevin is directly responsible for hundreds of hours of television across a wide range of subjects, but the franchise that hold first place in his heart is the subject of this humble podcast Lost in Space. Kevin is also the driving force behind the beautifully restored & re-mastered 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray collection & Ultimate Soundtrack CD collection that were released in 2015. For that all LIS fans owe HIM a special debt of gratitude.

PODCAST INFO: This interview was conducted on 23 April 2018.
