Asbury students learn to make sitcoms from ‘Golden Girls’ director

Asbury University is 2,200 miles from Hollywood, but students in its sitcom production class are assembling a 30-minute television show just as it’s done in California. As in previous Asbury productions over the past 10 years, the episode is written and directed by professor Doug Smart. He worked as an associate director network sitcoms “The Golden Girls,” “Newhart,” “Benson” and “Empty Nest” before getting his master’s degree and joining academia.
