The Writers Room Explained

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The writers room can be a mysterious place for someone trying to break into television. It’s the place where good ideas, contentious debate, and a seemingly endless supply of snacks come together to create all of your favorite TV shows. But how does it work? What is the etiquette expected? What are some of the most common issues that occur? What is the difference between a writer’s assistant and a staff writer? Story editor and executive story editor? Different producing roles and the role of the showrunner? Perhaps more importantly, how does one work their wayup the chain of command? Panelists will provide a glimpse inside these closed doors, offering secrets, anecdotes, strategies, to-do’s, and not-to-do’s.
