New Saturday Night Live Book

Posted by Tom Brogan on Saturday, January 17, 2015
There's a new book on Saturday Night Live coming out to join the others already on the shelves. Taschen have a coffee table style book by Alison Castle, created during the series' 39th season. Castle previously edited the Stanley Kubrick Archives book for Taschen. 

The book is called 'Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!' and promises to be part encyclopedia and part behind-the-scenes-tour.

Features include:
  • Over 2,300 images from SNL's archives, many previously unpublished
  • An illustrated breakdown of the 6-day week at SNL through the years, with an expanded section for the live show
  • Seasons reference guide with complete cast, host, and musical guest lists
  • Exclusive interview with founder and executive producer Lorne Michaels

I'm most interested in the breakdown of SNL's six day week. Here's a short film from season 39 with Edward Norton in a Wes Anderson parody.
