TODD HOSTS SPIDER-MAN WRITER/PRODUCER MORGAN GANDEL
TODD, SETH TALK ABOUT THE PENNANT RACES

Emmy-nominated writer and producer Morgan Gandel, who helped develop "Spider-Man," MTV's newest animated series, is this week's guest on the Todd McFarlane show with Seth Everett. In addition to the Hollywood talk, Todd and Seth will break down the current divisional and wild-card races as the regular season draws to a close this month.

As always, the show can be heard live from 4 to 5 PM Eastern on MLB.com Radio.

Based on the legendary Marvel comic book, and fresh off the hit motion picture, the animated series, "Spider-Man" follows the adventures of Peter Parker who develops superhuman powers after being bitten by a genetically altered spider. Now in college, Peter juggles academics, work as a stringer photographer for the Daily Bugle as well as selling candid video of Spider-Man to Empire 1 News Channel, an on-again-off-again relationship with the love of his life, fighting super-villains and criminals -- all the while struggling to maintain his secret identity as Spider-Man. The series was created in a unique computer-animated style, providing a new look for this classic hero. It would be the first time ever that "Spider-Man" would be 3-D animated.

Morgan wrote 12 episodes and was the executive producer who oversaw the entire project. He has impressive Hollywood credentials, including working on "VIP" (with Pam Anderson) as executive producer and head writer, as well as writing for "Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek the Next Generation."

If you want to ask Todd questions about McFarlane's Sports Picks, this week's guest or any other topic, please send them to radio@mlb.com and put Todd McFarlane in the subject line.
