Synopsis >

Before Laura Linney...there was Janie Haddad Tompkins. A little known fact, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was the original host of Masterpiece Classics (from 2011-2011) where she introduced everything from the burgeoning hit DOWNTON ABBEY to low-rated reruns of I, CLAUDIUS. Following some "creative differences" with PBS, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was replaced, unceremoniously, by Laura Linney -- her PBS legacy lost to the world. Until now. These outtakes from her work with PBS Director-in-Residence, Joel A. Spence, help paint the tragic story of dreams crushed and hosting jobs lost. #RehireJanie Find Janie (@janiehaddad) at these places: https://twitter.com/#!/janiehaddad http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2196900/ https://vimeo.com/lebaneselooker http://davidfeldmancomedy.com/ http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/david-feldman-show/id321997239 http://pft.libsyn.com/ http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-pod-f.-tompkast/id385372276 http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/this-week-in-mad-men-video/id384863996 http://thisweekin.com/thisweekin-mad-men/ http://www.earwolf.com/guest/janiehaddadtompkins/
