We are presenting this podcast as an introduction to our upcoming TV Story Weekend on January 14 and 15 in Los Angeles. If you don't yet know about Story Weekend, you absolutely must check it out - a two-day event with Lee Jessup, Jen Grisanti and Corey Mandel, giving specific insight and an intensive on all aspects of the TV writing process, business, and how to write a pilot that sells. There will also be two panels presented with representatives from the industry such Gersh, a writer on the upcoming Netflix show, Ozark, a TV-specific manager and then some. Join us in Los Angeles in mid-January 2017 and learn from the best! See more here.
In preparation for the year ahead, Max Timm jumped on the line for a quick interview and podcast with Lee Jessup. Lee is a longstanding friend of the ISA and we love that she is referenced as a Screenwriting Guidance Counselor. We all need someone like that in our lives, and Lee is the perfect example of a career coach and creative consultant. What she provides writers is invaluable, and we always love having her on for a podcast interview.
She shares with us specifics about what we can expect from the industry in the coming year, and how writers should approach pilot season (and giving us details on how pilot season has changed in recent years).
