Janet Tamaro part of Scriptwriters Network panel on January 12
On Saturday, January 12, 2013 a panel discussion with top television writers on "What It Takes To Work on Successful TV Shows." We are in a new Golden Age of Television. The boldest, strongest writing is arguably on current TV shows, both on cable and free to air. Part of the reason is that TV, unlike feature films, is a writers medium. TV executives are genuinely looking for unique, fresh writing voices to keep audiences entertained. This panel explores what it takes to work on a top rating TV show.
Speakers include Glenn Mazzara (showrunner of The Walking Dead, Executive Producer or Producer on HawthoRNe, Crash, Life, and The Shield), Alex Cary (Co-Executive Producer of Homeland, and Lie To Me), Dan O'Shannon (Writer/Producer on Modern Family, Better Off Ted, Back to You, Jericho, Frasier), Janet Tamaro (Creator/Writer/Producer/ Showrunner Rizzoli & Isles, Producer on Trauma, Bones, Sleeper Cell, CSI: NY), and Vanessa Taylor (Writer/Producer Hope Springs, Game of Thrones, Jack & Bobby, Everwood, Alias). Event starts at 1:00, check-in starts at 12:30 and is free for Scriptwriters Network members, $25 for non-members. RSVP and sign-up online at http://www.scriptwritersnetwork.org.
