AIR DATE: August 29, 2011
When Michael Berk was 6, his hand was severed and reattached after an 8-hour surgery. Little did he realize that experience would be useful when he wrote the script for "Soul Surfer," a movie based on surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack. Michael Berk talks about writing for movies, his co-creation of "Baywatch," and how he's trying to grow the film industry in Las Vegas.
