Sweet line-up! I can’t wait to hear what they have to say. Yay screenwriters!
Sound like a good interesting line-up
I’m definitely setting a reminder and tuning in. I forgot last time! (shame on me).
are you cooking?
man, i have been thinking about applying for the abc fellowship forever. writing for TV is a whole new gig. I’d really like to see what it’s like and hope I would like it.
this is a good show. i have been explaining that people work with people they know and who they worked with before. it is good to hear someone else say it. he’s taking the words out my mouth.
I’m listening to the podcast now. Good stuff!
It was a very good podcast Tambay. A lot of good information was shared.
I just finished listening, excellent job! It was really informative and I especially enjoyed listening to Kriss Turner’s comments. It’s inspiring when a black female writer is in the mix. Looking forward to part 2!
I just listened to the podcast and I must say that I loved it. It was very informing and inspiring. Now a show with directors who work in television.
