Scott D. Peterson
He was born on Halloween, so it’s only natural that this Emmy-nominated and multi-talented guy was just named to write and executive produce the upcoming Haunted Mansion special for the Disney Channel and Disney XD. Meet our friend Scott D. Peterson, who also writes for the juggernaut that is Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb.” (Fun Scott Fact: He’s credited as having come up with the concept for the recent smash “Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars” crossover episode.)
Listen in as Scott and Brian reminisce about pop culture, USC, and their illustrious student radio station pranks and shenanigans—including a poorly thought-out, mock death staging. You’ll also hear Danielle praise Scott’s “journalism” chops as they discuss his past job as a Bat Boy correspondent for the now defunct Weekly World News. Plus, you'll enjoy Scott's questionable guitar skills, while he shares how he got started in the entertainment business as a slime-wrangler and how seeing his name in print at a Scholastic Book Fair finally made him feel like a big shot.
Lastly, as we gear up for Halloween, Scott discusses the annual haunted house he and a friend helm in South Pasadena, CA. You’ll get inside scoop on the 2014 iteration, which is called Raymond Hill Mortuary and runs Oct. 18 through Nov. 1 at Fremont Centre Theatre, 1000 Fremont Ave. He also tells us how you can take in the special “Lights On Party” preview on Oct. 17. (Proceeds from Lights On Party tickets benefit the South Pasadena Education Foundation.)
