To put it lightly, it was a pleasure having Liz Hannah on the ISA's Curious About Screenwriting podcast. Her story of success is nothing short of miraculous, but the podcast host, Max Timm, discussed with Liz the importance of setting oneself up for such a miracle and how there is no such thing as an overnight success. While Liz only briefly discusses the (nothing short of) amazing back and forth she had with industry executives and her reps that eventually landed her meetings with some of the business's elite (Spielberg, Hanks, Streep), but her attitude and strength of character throughout all of The Post's journey from development to release is inspiring. One of the industry's rising stars, Liz is working harder than ever to continue her career and moving it forward in spite of coming out of the gates at full speed with her Golden Globe nomination and WGA Selvin Honorary Award.
We look forward to following Liz's career for years to come, especially with the recent announcement of Liz working with MGM and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine on the film adaptation of the Gail Honeyman bestselling novel Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
