INSIDE THE WRITERS ROOM: WRITING, PRODUCING & ACTING FOR TELEVISION
Hudson Mercantile – 500 W 36th St at October 07, 2017, 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM
Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz moderates a panel of successful TV writers and executives who talk about their craft in a freewheeling discussion for fans and aspiring writers alike as they talk about making your favorite shows and how to get them on the air. Before there can be a hit series (or even a Manimal), there has to be a pilot and our panel of expert creators and writers will share their experiences, the good, bad and the very ugly in selling and making a television pilot and how to keep your show on the air. They share their candid thoughts on how to write and re-write the series we love (and sometimes loathe). Find out the deep, dark secrets (and low-calorie snacks) of the writers’ room – and why network executives actually care about what you write on message boards. The hit of San Diego and New York Comic Con is back to entertain, educate and inspire.
Plus: Learn from the stars of some of today’s most popular shows what they expect from a showrunner and how they interface with writers and producers and what can to do to work better with your actors.
A separate ticket is required for this event. Please visit SHOWCLIX for information and availability.
