The Writers Panel #291: First Timers and One Season Wonders

A double-header recorded at ATX, a Television Festival this year. First, Ryan Condal (co-creator, Colony), Zander Lehmann (creator, Casual), Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (co-creator, unREAL), and Joe Pokaski (co-creator, Underground) discuss the process of creating and/or running their own show for the first time, and learning to juggle all that having a new series entails, from pitching, to writing and producing a pilot, having their series picked up, organizing a writers room, and being paired with seasoned showrunners (or learning to become one themselves). Moderated by Tim Goodman (The Hollywood Reporter).

Then, Debra Birnbaum (Variety) talks with Hart Hanson (creator, Backstrom), Ted Griffin (creator, Terriers), Javier Grillo-Marxuach (creator, The Middleman), and Kevin Falls (creator, Journeyman) about the lessons they have learned from their one-season wonders, the constantly-changing definitions of success, not compromising creative vision, and how these short-lived series have shaped their ongoing careers.

Recorded at ATX Television Festival on June 11, 2016.
