 Herbie J Pilato was invaluable as a Creative Consultant on the Six Million Dollar Man DVD collection which Giant Interactive authored. His passion and knowledge of great classic TV shows was a huge help in the development of ideas for the additional VAM created for the collection. Herbie J helped turn this project into a great success.”
