How are our current top TV shows created? How do the writers interact? How is the process completed? What is the writers' room like? Television drama has come to rival cinema in its sophisticated narrative form and high production values. At the heart of this success is the writer, and TV has become the home of some of the most exciting and high quality writing.
The NY-based showrunners from some of the biggest American TV dramas of recent years--Tom Fontana, Eric Overmyer and Terence Winter--will offer a window into the inner workings of the writers' room. The panel will be moderated by Christina Kallas, faculty member at both Columbia and Barnard, and author of the new book, Inside the Writers’ Room: Conversations with American TV Writers, which will be available for signing and purchase.
Join us to hear about these unique writers’ experiences and practices on The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, The Wire, Treme, Oz and Homicide: Life On The Street.
