10-F Tuesday, April 5, 1988 The Philadelphia Inquirer Don't expect any Did you ever know anybody who was in the perfect career? I've known some people who understood themselves well enough or who were just plain lucky enough to get into careers that to a great extent matched their talents and temperaments. But perfect ? 1 just don't think this is in the cards, yet it's what some people continue to look for, people who are convinced that it's right around the corner, the key-in-lock fit that forever will bring success, prosperity and contentment. One reason that some people continue to look for perfection is that other people continue to promise it. Not long ago I got in the mail a notice that promoted a seminar "on finding the perfect career" and on celebrating life's work, presumably forever. I'm convinced that this kind of stuff, even when it's well-intentioned, sets up people for disappointment after disappointment. When something goes haywire and eventually something always does go haywire people who seek perfection feel as if they've failed again or that the world somehow has failed them. And off they go once more. . . . Say, where is that holy grail, anyway? CWPLUS1I think the best that we realistically can expect, for the most part, is that we can find work that is meaningful much of the time, that offers us some challenge, that puts us sometimes in contact with people who are stimulating, that at day's end more often than not leaves us feeling that we're glad to be where we are. If we have that, or even part of it, we're way ahead of almost everybody else. A show for "WONDER YEARS," from 1-F '50s and that were pretty much inhabited by couples in their mid-20s who moved in with tiny kids," says Black, who was born and raised in Silver Spring, Md. (Her husband grew up in Huntington, N.Y., on Long Island.) "No matter how old you were or what you were like, there were always three kids around to play with. We sort of traveled in packs and had a sense of independence because it was a rather safe environment. "I don't know to what extent people feel that way today," continues Black, who is expecting her first child in August. "I sense that people are a little more cautious. I remember when I was 12, there were woods near my house where I'd go and wander. I don't imagine I'd be doing that today." Black pauses to complete a thought. "I guess it was a very sheltered and unrealistic environment to grow up in." For all the differences that the producers see between the suburbs of today and those of yesterday. Savage, who comes from an affluent community outside Chicago, figures that they're about the same. "I think Kevin Arnold is a lot like Fred Savage," says the young actor whose first professional job was a Pac-Man Vitamins commercial, shot when he was in kindergarten. "One difference is that be plays baseball on the street I play baseball on a field because, on my street, you'd have to move too many rimes for cars." This is not the producers' first foray into depicting TV kids. Marlens was the creator of Growing Pains; bis wife later joined him as executive producer. (The couple met while students at Swarthmore College.) Black also wrote the script of the controversial hit feature film Soul Man, which she co-produced with Marlens. "With Growing Pains says Black, "we were just going trying to make something that looked like a TV show. Now we're trying to make something that interests us. This one's a little bit more from the inside out." The idea grew out of a feature Premium movies on cable Amadous '84. (PG) F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hulce.

Authority figures By DARRELL SIFFORD But perfect ? Only in the seminars. Jack Erdlen has seen a lot of them come and go over the years, bright people with potentially marvelous futures if only they didn't want everything to be perfect. "There was this guy about 35, and he was making $75,000 a year, and he seemed to have the world by the tail. But he was unhappy with his job, and he was looking for the job that would be perfect for him. We all change jobs sometimes. That's a fact of life. But this feeling that it is out there, the ideal thing, is what causes people a lot of trouble. You can't push a button after taking a test or being interviewed by a counselor and say that, yes, you should be an ice fisherman in Minnesota or a third baseman in Japan. It just doesn't come that way." Erdlen is president of Management Dimensions Inc., an outplacement and career-search firm in Wellesley, Mass. In an interview he said that "you have to identify within yourself what are your skills, your abilities, what makes you happy. You also have to identify what you don't like to do. You have to understand from the beginning that there are shortcomings to every job. Yes, every job. baby boomers and Savage with Danica McKellar, script the pair were writing that employed an off-screen narrator. "We liked the concept that you could play with what people think and what they're saying," explains Black, "or how they would like to see themselves as opposed to how the audience is seeing them. The thing that's really different about The Wonder Years is that it's from both a child's and an adult's point of view at the same time." Another really different thing about The Wonder Years, at least from ABC's standpoint, is that it's a hit. The network clearly smellcd a winner besides premiering the program immediately after this year's Super Bowl, programmers have sandwiched it between two of ABC's most popular entries, Who's the Boss? and Moonlighting. It has scored impressive ratings, and the show has attracted a remarkably wide-ranging audience children actually seem to be watching it with their parents. "If you do a show like Growing Pains ," says Black, "you end up doing a particular story about either the kids or the adults. All of our stories are about kids, but they're also about the things that interest the adult narrator." Tremendous attention is paid to spoil all the star-crossed fun for a boy from a back-woods parole camp and a girl from a school run by nuns. Adult situations, profanity. 104m.

The fact is that when most people "Certain jobs the vast majority look for another job, something is preclude enjoyment . . . because bothering them, said Erdlen, and they're set up for specific tasks to be . they're so interested in getting rid of performed in routine ways." For what's bothering them now that they many people, job satisfaction is not don't check out the other stuff that possible, he said, and they need to potentially could bother thorn intnr "Maybe you, as a marketing rep, can't get the good trips. Maybe you can't get the best territory. Maybe you don't have an office with a window. Maybe you're not in a modern building .. . or something superficial like that. Or maybe you're not getting ahead; your last increase was not that great. "So you look around at other jobs, and you have a great interview that takes care of your complaints.

The use of period pop music the real thing ranging from the Byrds to Joe Cocker has also given The Wonder Years the most nostalgic soundtrack on TV. The producers knew from the start that sound-alikes would just not do. "When you do a song that people really know," says Black, "and you use a sound-alike, it's kind of like bringing someone in front of you who looks a lot like your mom. "So far, the only song we couldn't get was the Beatles' 'Blackbird.' Instead of having somebody imitate the Beatles, we used an instrumental version of the song." The cost of leasing the original recordings as opposed to using newly recorded facsimiles about $3,000 a song versus around $1,000 was factored into the budget. "We figured that in the same way that Miami Vice has a budget for stunts," explains Black, "we'd have a budget for music." Between The Wonder Years and Growing Pains, Marlens and Black have had plenty of opportunity to assess the challenge of working with children. Savage's name came up violence. 88m.

Sheriff and the Satellite Kid, The '79. perfect accept the fact that, if they're ever to be happy, they must find something in which they can invest away from work. That's tough talk, but it's true, and 1 suggest that people consider it when they scramble for perfection. It's important to be realistic. What about my job? I'm contacted by plenty of people who want to find out how they can get a job like mine, talking to interesting people about interesting things and, of course, writing a little bit, too. They want to know how I got such a perfect job. It is just about perfect, isn't it? Yes, just about. their kids when they were interviewing casting directors, and though he has never had a single acting lesson, his natural ability and charm won him the role. "You try to consider what kind of person the actor is," says Black, "and how much fun and easy and productive the kid would be to work with. In addition to obviously casting the best actor for the part, those personality factors are important, because you don't want to work 12 hours a day with a spoiled brat." Another trick with adolescents, of course, is the wild card of puberty. "That was one reason we wanted to cast kids who are really the age we are dealing with," says Black. "Sometimes you'll cast a kid who's 14 but who looks a little younger. Two months later, he'll have a voice that's older than yours. At least when the kids are their real ages, the changes can be worked into the whole concept." The other trick about working with children is abiding by labor laws that require that a child not be called upon to work for more than a 9Va-hour span that must include a half-hour for lunch, a half-hour for recreation and three hours for school. Those regulations pose no problem for the program's other minor participants including Josh Saviano as Kevin's nerdy pal, Paul, or Danica McKellar as his girlfriend, Winnie but Savage is in almost every scene. For this reason, says Black, "it's much easier to use children in an ensemble show. If you're doing Family Ties, for instance, there are scenes that Jennifer's not in. We don't have that luxury." The Wonder Years is filmed on a Tuesday-through-Saturday schedule using locations in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. Although they find settings there that duplicate an earlier suburbia, Black shudders at the thought of her unborn child growing up in gasp a TV town. "We have secret plans to leave Los Angeles before our kids reach the age of cognizance," says Black. "Because of the way we grew up, we have an inclination to find a nice, normal neighborhood."
