ATX Television Festival is presenting the first Achievement in Television Excellence award to Henry Winkler in a ceremony and conversation with the icon himself. Winkler’s body of work encompasses the standards that drive ATX Television Festival: genuine, thoughtful, expansive, and most importantly, entertaining. In an interview with Royal Pains’ executive producer Michael Rauch, Winkler will talk about his early life, influences and what drew him to show business. Hear stories from the sets of iconic series: The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show and Rhoda, and how he created an iconic character with Arther “Fonzie” Fonzarelli on Happy Days. Winkler will discuss what it took to break away from “The Fonz” mold, and how he reinvented himself in unforgettable characters on the small screen, guest starring on The Practice, Childrens Hospital, Parks & Recreation, Arrested Development and Royal Pains, as well as executive producing MacGyver, and his most current development with his son Max, The Winklers on ABC.
