Tom Forman, CEO of Burbank-based Critical Content, joins Jimmy Fox for the latest edition of the Unscripted and Unprepared podcast, presented in partnership with Realscreen.

The episode features Forman and Fox discussing the stories behind several of the big hits he’s been involved with, such as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for ABC and MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show, as well as some of the more controversial series in his portfolio, such as 2007′s Kid Nation for CBS and Gigolos for Showtime.

The conversation also covers Forman’s formative production years in television news, his perspectives on pitching, and the evolution of his career and company — from his time working with Relativity, to the recent acquisition of Jenny Daly’s T Group.
