Here is a fantastic roundtable interview via The Hollywood Reporter with some of the most influential TV creators out there.
- Aaron Sorkin, The Newsroom
- Nic Pizzolatto, True Detective
- Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad
- Ann Biderman, Ray Donovan
- Matthew Weiner, Mad Men
- Carlton Cuse, Bates Motel
They cover a lot of topics, from casting movie stars to the anxiety and thrill of the writing process to dealing with social media and much more.
We writers have a lot in common…childhoods, parents, a lot of these experiences are very common, it’s kind of shocking. And there is something about being heard and the chance to have that controlled communication that I think is worth the failure. It’s worth all the failures. And most of us don’t even know what our failures are.
Good luck and happy writing,
“…as much as an analysis of Nolan the filmmaker as it is an analysis of story structure within his films.”
