Corrections Department #2: The TV Writer and the Playboy Bunny

March 31, 2008

Finally, I’ve solved – or at least made some headway on – a minor mystery about The Fugitive that’s nagged at me ever since Jonathan Etter’s book Quinn Martin, Producer: A Behind-the-Scenes History of QM Productions and Its Founder came out in 2003. 

Citing The Fugitive‘s original producer, Alan A. Armer, as his source, Etter wrote that the writer Jack Laird “moonlighted under his wife’s name for a few scripts on The Fugitive during the Armer years.”  Laird was a major talent, the author of some of the finest Ben Caseys, the primary creative force behind Night Gallery, a key contributor to Kojak, and on and on.  To confirm his uncredited creative involvement in The Fugitive would be something of a scoop, at least among classic tele-philes. 

A while ago I checked with Etter, and he had no further details.  Since then I’d been thinking now and again about the pseudonym Laird might have used.  Armer’s hint about Laird’s “wife’s name” wasn’t much help, since there were no Fugitive writers whose names related obviously to Laird’s.  Whittling the list down to just the show’s women writers, who were very much in the minority at that point in TV history, still left several possibilities.  Betty Langdon, who wrote the “When the Wind Blows” (a bland episode about a single mother and her troubled runaway boy), was an obvious candidate: she has no credits on any other American TV series, at least not according to any reference book or database I’ve come across.  Or what about Joy Dexter, the author of “Coralee,” a familiar Jonah story with Antoinette Bower as the tragic girl who thinks she’s the town jinx?  Dexter had a smattering of credits on The Virginian and a couple of other westerns, but few enough that her name could’ve been an alias someone used for a while.  But I couldn’t find any information to support my guesses about either of them.

Meanwhile, I’d always been curious about another Fugitive writer, a woman named Jeri Emmett, mostly because the four episodes on which she shared a teleplay credit during the series’ fourth year were all pretty good: “The Devil’s Disciples,” with Diana Hyland as a sultry biker chick; “Concrete Evidence,” about the paths of guilt that follow in the wake of a shoddily constructed schoolhouse’s collapse; “Dossier on a Diplomat,” with Kimble holing up on the foreign soil of an African embassy; and “The Savage Street,” a routine juvenile delinquency story.  (Well, three out of four isn’t bad.) 

Emmett’s television work seemed to stop abruptly after a brief burst of productivity between 1966 and 1968.  I’d ruled out Emmett as a candidate for the Jack Laird pseudonym, though, because she was clearly a real person, listed in the Writer’s Guild database and with credits on a handful of other TV shows from the same era (including Mannix and Iron Horse).  

But this week I did some more checking, and discovered that Jeri Emmett was married to Jack Laird in the late ’60s and had to be the woman to whom Armer was referring.  (I had jumped to a conclusion, assuming that Laird had registered his wife’s name as a pseudonym with the WGA, and that this identity would’ve died when he did in 1991.)  The minor error in Etter’s book was that Laird (if he was in fact writing under Emmett’s name) didn’t work on The Fugitive during Alan Armer’s stint as producer, but during the show’s final season, after Armer had departed to oversee another Quinn Martin series, The Invaders

That made perfect sense, because the producer who succeeded Armer on The Fugitive‘s fourth season was a man named Wilton Schiller.  Schiller had been, until they’d split up to pursue separate careers about five years previously, Jack Laird’s old writing partner on shows like M Squad and The Millionaire.  The year after The Fugitive went off the air, Schiller moved over to produce the first year of Mannix – and that’s where Jeri Emmett has her final produced credit that I can find, on the episode “Turn Every Stone.” 

But what became of Jeri Emmett after her brief spate of ’60s writing?  Beginning in 1977, she entered into a three-decade legal battle with Aaron Spelling over the authorship of the TV series Family, which is often regarded as the only worthwhile program Spelling was ever associated with.  Emmett won a $1.69 million jury award but, through a series of complex legal setbacks, the verdict was reversed.  (The sole credited creator of Family is the distinguished screenwriter Jay Presson Allen, although in his insipid autobiography, Spelling hogs a lot of Allen’s glory for himself, too.)

The most intriguing tidbit I unearthed about Jeri Emmett was what appears to be her debut as a professional writer – this tell-all account of working as a Bunny at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Club during its mid-’60s heyday:

emmett-book.jpg

(I’m guessing that’s not really Jeri on the cover – although she does write that she was a dead ringer for Connie Stevens.)

The book is a fascinating read, the story of a smart, naive farm girl from Grant’s Pass, Oregon, who drifts into working as a Bunny while at loose ends in L.A.  She’s bemused by the casual vulgarity and sex she encounters at the Club and among her fellow Bunnies.  Some passages feel genuine, and have a mildly proto-feminist point of view, while others feel ghost-written or punched up, as if an editor stuck in some sleaze before the manuscript went to press. 

At the end of the book Bunny Jeri pulls off her tail and resolves to return to Grant’s Pass.  In real life, within the same year of the book’s publication (it covers the span of about 1964-65 and came out in 1966), Emmett apparently met and married Jack Laird and achieved her first television credit.

Aha: an ex-Bunny turned prime-time television writer?  Now that’s a story!  But, the question remained: was Jeri Emmett really a television writer at all?  Did she really write those Fugitive and Mannix scripts, or was she just a front for Jack Laird, writing under the table for his old buddy Wilton Schiller?  Laird was at that time under exclusive contract to Universal, producing pilots and TV movies, so it made sense that he’d have needed to use an assumed name to do any writing on the side.  The fact that all of Emmett’s Fugitive credits were shared with other writers suggests that Schiller was using Emmett as a script doctor, an unusual situation for a fledgling writer.  I’m inclined to believe the “Laird touch” is what Schiller was seeking to punch up those scripts. 

But mightn’t the Lairds also have collaborated, if Emmett was an aspiring writer, and Laird wanted to help his new bride get started in the business?  And officially, of course, the credits are Emmett’s alone.  It seems unfair to deprive her of any credit based on one offhand remark, especially given that Emmett had a byline of her own before she ever met Jack Laird.

It occurred to me that a certain sexist assumption common to the era may have been at work here.  In other words, the idea that since Jeri Emmett was an attractive young blonde, and married to a prominent television writer, any scripts issued under her name must surely have sprung forth from the prolific brain of Jack Laird.  Perhaps that rumor might have dogged Emmett’s nascent career, and had something to do with its early demise?

That might sound far-fetched – impossibly patronizing – by today’s standards.  But this is the same era when the executive producer of a hit Fox serial kept an apartment across the street from the lot to “audition” prospective actresses, and having an affair with Gene Roddenberry was evidently a qualification for becoming a female series regular on Star Trek.  Sexism was omnipresent in the television industry.

Ultimately, there were many talented women writers who came to be taken seriously on their own merits during the ’60s.  But who’s to say that there weren’t just as many who got shut out?  If they couldn’t get a foot in the door and gave up in frustration, then they’re not around to tell their stories.  That’s the peril in my kind of research.  Screen credits and production files provide a finite pool of leads, and those leads yield only a certain kind of truth.

I thought that when I made the connection between Laird and Emmett I’d solved a mystery, but instead I’d only uncovered a much knottier conundrum.  It seemed that the only way to find out who really wrote what might be to ask Jeri Emmett Laird herself.  So last week I tracked Ms. Laird down and put to her some of the questions I’ve been ruminating about above.

Unfortunately, Jeri wouldn’t comment for the record about anything (not even whether that’s her on the cover of Point Your Tail in the Right Direction), because she’s working on writing her own memoir.  We chatted on the phone for a while and, off the record, Jeri gave me a partial answer to my basic question about the authorship of those Fugitive scripts.  For the time being, though, that part of the story will have to remain a mystery.

And in the meantime, I can’t figure out whether I’m pleased or discouraged that, with three books in print about The Fugitive (plus that Quinn Martin bio), puzzle pieces like these still remain for the historians to fit together.

    That’s definetly her in the picture…
    I know her well.
    She also claims that Spelling stole the Charlie’s Angels concept from her as well.

  2. gerryeverett Says:

    I knew her well too. She was my wife for five years. A great lady!I would like to here from here.

  3. Steve Z. Says:

    Stephen,
    Jeri Emmett was still writing with Jack Laird as late as 1975. There is a Kojak script on Ebay called A Wind From Corsica in which they were credited as participating writers with Matthew Rapf. The strange thing is though that this episode was actually taken from an episode of The Bold Ones: The Protectors called Carrier. Both episodes of The Bold Ones and Kojak credit the teleplay on screen to Mark Rodgers and Barry Trivers and the story to Paul Stein and Charles Watts.

  4. Stephen Bowie Says:

    Well, that’s interesting. I’ve seen the Bold Ones but not the Kojak. I’m guessing WGA arbitration had something to do with the difference between what’s on that script page and what’s in the credits of “A Wind From Corsica.” Jack Laird was the producer of both shows, so he probably remembered an old script that Universal owned and reworked it in a pinch (that one came toward the end of Kojak‘s third season).

    Stein & Watts are clearly pseudonyms (they’re also credited on a Here Come the Brides episode, along with a third name that’s probably also fake). Probably for Laird & Emmett … or possibly for Laird & Rapf, who had been working together since Ben Casey? I wish I could’ve gotten Jeri to talk about all this.

    • Scott Says:

      If this matters at all, I found this post because today’s LA Times story about the “down and out” people at the Central Library surprised me when JEL’s name popped off the page and I Googled her. I was friends with Jeri’s son Michael at West Hollywood Elementary, who appeared in an episode of Night Gallery entitled ‘The Dark Boy’ (the article says he’s dead but I had found him alive on Facebook a year ago) and all these many years later I never forgot about that being a big deal, that his stepfather was a producer on the show and got him a non-speaking role at the center of an episode. So if you wanted to find her to talk to her it sounds as if the library is the place to be!

      • Stephen Bowie Says:

        Thanks for pointing that out, Scott. Here’s the link to that LA Times piece. Is it definitely inaccurate about Michael Laird? Not to be insensitive, but could he have passed away in the last year? (Or I wonder if there was another son?)

        Really sad to hear that Jeri has fallen on hard times. I hope things improve for her. I wish she’d agreed to be interviewed and, in retrospect, I wish I’d framed this piece differently; if I allowed myself to go back and obsessively rewrite the archives, I’d probably start here.

      • Scott Says:

        If she had another son he would’ve had to be born after I last saw Michael when sixth grade ended in 1974. I’d only found him through a Facebook comment to a friend’s friend relating to the school they’d all gone to for junior/senior high, and it was barely two weeks after that before his Facebook page disappeared entirely… only to be replaced by one days later with a variation on his name that I could no longer see since I was no longer “friended” to it. I’d gotten the sense that he was facing some things in his life and it is entirely possible that he passed away and his family removed the profile; it’s also possible that he was thought to be dead before then, or even just the proverbial “dead to me” scenario?

        I can vouch for the house being accurate; it was up Sunset Plaza above what is now Mel’s Diner, which is across the street from the building where the Playboy Club and offices used to be located. It was an amazing house with some nice cars in the garage; I can’t imagine living a life like that and then losing it all.

        Since the story said she’s working on her memoirs (still) it’s probably not likely she’d talk to you now, but it might just be worth the try to resolve the above. It sure piqued my interest, especially after reading it, and maybe at her age and situation you never know!

        Michael Laird is an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin. He lectures on rare books and special collections. IMdb has him listed as currently teaching in UofT and here is the link to his Rare Books website: http://michaellaird.com/

        The Dark Boy is my all time favorite Night Gallery episode–I always wondered if Jack/Michael were related. Now I have some idea of their connection.

      • Scott Says:

        It’s confusing, but… Michael’s last credit shows him as being in the movie SLACKER, shot at the University of Texas at Austin. However, the image associated with Michael Laird Books (I Google image searched further) looks nothing at all like Michael does/did as an adult when I found him on Facebook via my friend. (We were only very briefly in contact and then his account disappeared.) I think whoever submitted that information to the IMDB may have been wrong, or the Michael Laird in SLACKER was indeed the person who became the book seller.

      • trixpflu Says:

        Thank you for the input. I hope the Michael Laird of your childhood / Night Gallery fame resurfaces and is well.

      • Persephone Laird Says:

        Michael is alive and well
        He just changed his name to his dad’s last name
        He was in dark boy

  5. Stephen Bowie Says:

    “The Dark Boy” indeed. Jack was enormously talented. It’s sad to hear there’s an unhappy legacy there.

  6. a legal relative of Jack Laird Says:

    Wow, a lot of incorrect info here. Jack never married Jeri. Jack was amrried to Peggy Laird. He met Jeri when she was a playboy bunny during the marriage. He was the talent and writer. Who knows how long they were even together.

    • Stephen Bowie Says:

      So you knew with certainty that they were never married, but not how long they were together? If you can verify any specific inaccuracies in this piece, I’d be happy to make corrections.

        11 years
        Common Law marriage

      • Persephone Laird Says:

        My mother
        Was married to Jack Laird
        A common Law marriage of 11 years
        Which sadly ended up in a court decided divorce.
        My dad had many pseudonyms. Decoursey one of them yes.
        My mom was a writer. She was very naive in the 60s but watching how women were treated and being naive made her just follow her heart and never give up. My dad loved watching her write. He loved her with all his heart.
        They had different styles of writing.
        He didnt use her writing and he didnt open doors for her. She was a strong woman and people loved her. She made it all happen. She met some wonderful friends with my dad….I’m sure that helped but she was a writer at heart. Infact it was how he thought she was so cute…..that might have ended the marriage. One of her regrets as my dad was amazing.
        She wrote those episodes and also wrote Family and Charlies Angels…..which also was determined in a court of law. The Family case. But you cant battle a big name like Spelling.
        Trust me I saw what people are capable of doing. So sad.
        I have lots of proof from the Writers Guild and her scripts. That is also her on the cover of the book. Point Your Tail.

        Sharon did not know my mother so not sure why she is posting a hurtful response.

        My mom recently passed from covid
        Bless her soul and beautiful spirit.
        I am more than happy to provide clarity on my mothers legacy as a woman who fought with the ERA and other social justice causes.
        She was often the target of sexism in the industry but for many years she battled against the norms.
        She worked on her memoir for 20 years but died before it was finished.
        She often helped others more than herself.
        Michael is my bother, he is alive and he changed his name to his dad’s last name. He was in dark boy.
        My other brother passed away….Kurt.

        She would be honored that someone wrote about her body of work that way ….that you thoughtfully did here.
        Not sure why people posted negative remarks but I lived most of my life with my mom and took care of her. If anyone knows about my mom and dad….its me. You can see what a beautiful person she was based on the friends she made in her late 70s.
        Still writing living in downtown and going to the library everyday to read.
        She had a stroke after moving with me and 4 years later contracted covid at a nursing home. .I never got to see her after March 14th. I love you Mom

    Stephen, here is a link to a 1973 newspaper article about Jeri Emmett and Jack Laird being involved in an embezzlement case. http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2245&dat=19730125&id=R2wzAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ITIHAAAAIBAJ&pg=3323,3378184

  8. evan holz Says:

    Your comment about Betty Langdon’s script being bland is way off. It received a nomination for writing that year & was the first example of a show regarding autism / asperger that I’ve seen. Fugitive was a fantastic series as were many of Martin’s works. Seems to be a worthy man to study.

  9. Steve Z. Says:

    Stephen,

    Did Jack Laird write The Fugitive scripts credited to Jeri Emmett? I found on Ebay an auction of Fugitive scripts bound as a book that belonged to Jack Laird. The title of the bound book says Series- Free Lance. It has the four scripts credited to Emmett bound with A Man from Shenandoah script credited to a writer with very few credits named Kevin DeCourcey. Could DeCourcey be a pen name for Laird? here is the link:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Fugitive-1960s-Original-Rare-TV-Scripts-Classic-David-Janssen-Episodes/121375144025

    • Stephen Bowie Says:

      That’s a very intriguing find, Steve. Thanks.

      Yes, I’d always pegged “Kevin de Courcey” as a pseudonym for somebody. Laird had never come to mind, but it fits the chronology neatly: after he left Ben Casey for Universal, before Jeri Emmett started fronting for him. The Ben Casey script credited to “de Courcey” could also have been lying around since the time Laird was on staff, as was apparently the case with Norman Katkov’s scripts for the final season.

      I wish I knew more about that Man Called Shenandoah script, though: If the CTVA.biz credits are accurate, there’s no episode with that title, nor any other credited to Laird, de Courcey, or any other possibly pseudonymous name. And yet the date (6/22/65) puts it close to the beginning of the season, so if it wasn’t produced, why? In any case Fred Freiberger (the producer credited on the title page) had been a colleague of Laird’s on Ben Casey.

      I wish I knew more about the provenance of these “personally bound” Laird scripts.

  10. Steve Z. Says:

    Stephen,

    About DeCourcey, he also wrote 2 scripts of The Wild Wild West during that show’s first season. The night the Dragon Screamed for producer John Mantley, and The night of the Druid’s Blood for producer Gene Coon. Before John Mantley and Gene Coon came in, The Wild Wild West was produced by Fred Freiberger. Freiberger was fired from the show in early November 1965. Could Mantley and Coon have used some of the scripts commissioned by Freiberger before he was fired? I know the last episode Freiberger produced which was The night of the Torture Chamber was actually produced uncredited by John Mantley.

    • Stephen Bowie Says:

      Right, of course, that makes sense. Freiberger and (on The Fugitive) Wilton Schiller, both ex-Ben Casey comrades, using Laird to quietly write under the table for them. Musical chairs: Did Freiberger go from A Man Called Shenandoah to Wild Wild West, or the other way around? If he left Man Called abruptly, that could explain why Laird/de Courcey’s script was discarded.

      • Steve Z. Says:

        Stephen,

        It seems Jack Laird did write The Wild Wild West. The Film Reference website lists it as one of his credits.

  11. Steve Z. Says:

    Stephen,

    Fred Freiberger worked on Shenandoah first. He was fired because of disagreements with the star Robert Horton according to Variety. Freiberger’s episodes of The Wild Wild West started filming in August 1965. He came in to replace Collier Young who had produced 3 episodes before he was let go in July 1965. You said that Jeri Emmett also worked on the Iron Horse series. After the Wild Wild West, Freiberger went on to do that series. Matthew Rapf also worked on the Iron Horse series as well.

  12. Sharon A Taylor Says:

    Yes, in fact Jeri & Jack were never married and she fabricated a lot of the hearsay. He was brilliant and wrote LOT Under a few names.

I wonder where she is maybe she went to live with her daughter I dont know but I wish her thee very best. Aaron spelling was a dirtbag and shouldve paid Her whatever she wanted. Nothing worse than a rich old ass cheapskate. He didnt take the money with him so why not pay people you owe to get some use out of it other than more bullshit and a new face for your wife every year so she can pay some young boy to plow her crypt keeper looking ass. Couldnt even give his kids any money. Tight bastard.

    Jeri Wrote awesome things! She was also my Neighbour. And i enjoyed her Company here in LA. We would chat about her years of being Young.
    She also Would talk about her Daughter and Son all the time to me.
    She loved them so Much.
    She was here till she Moved.
    I miss her company very much.
    I had her Daughters number until my phone broke. After an Accidemt that Jeri Had & her i lost contact. 😢 super sad. I was Suppose to give her family Something She was working on.
    If anyone finds her or her family please have them email me. And 👍 YES that is Jeri on the Cover! YES she is a Very great writer!
    Super, Happy to have known her for the time i did. She deserves NOTHING but the best. All the credit should go to her for her Work. Shame on the people Who’d Discredit A beautiful heart and great mind. Some people in this world Play Dirty & Are Greedy.
    But Jeri was a Head Strong woman Full of Determination! She Never let anything get to her -Even at her age, she didnt give up to Script write New things!
    She was a Woman thats Legacy will live on through her children & Grandchildren.

  17. Hi
    I am Jeris daughter. She recently passed from Covid. I’d love to clarify that that is her on the cover of the book. And she is the writer of those episodes. The court case consumed her life and all of that plus her true story as a writer and woman.is what made her dive in to her memoir. That never got finished but she had so.much fun working on it. Thank you for sharing her story and I’m happy to provide any information. I’m sure she would have to. It just was hard to trust people after so many disappointments but she never have up. She was a strong woman and she marched for equal rights for woman as well as the victims of social injustice. She helped others often more than herself. She loved writing and never stopped until the day she passed. This was so nice to find something about her legacy and someone who cared enough to do their research. Thank you again.

    As Jeri has now passed on (R.I.P., Jeri), is it possible now to reveal what that partial answer was?

      Good question … I guess that could go either way, ethically. Except that I have no memory now of what she said!

      I would be surprised if I hadn’t recorded the conversation or at least kept notes, but I’d have to do some digging to find those. Sorry to disappoint.

      • JSLim Says:

        Might be interesting. I’m coming to the end of a massive Fugitive rewatch, and her name is coming up on some good episodes. I’ll be curious to know more about the story behind her writing contributions — if, of course, the story can be revealed. (And if you actually find it!)

    I like the blog, very informative, I just checked out Jack’s imdb page and his wikipedia page (along with the sources provided), he was very prolific, it also said that he was a writer on Ford Theatre, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Mr. District Attorney, The Psychiatrist, and The Ann Sothern Show, my guess is that, 1. It’s inaccurate, 2. There’s lack of information, or 3. There’s another pseudonym that has yet to surface, I’m assuming the same thing with Jeri since she had used a pseudonym on The Bold Ones: The Protectors.

    Anyways, keep up the good work.
