Audience Questions – TV Writing and TV Business (PT91)

Alex and Nick answer audience questions about television writing and the TV business.

Is there a benefit to writing beyond the pilot? Do dramas have an equivalent to comedy “punch-ups”? What does an outline look like? How do you sell a TV concept? Where can you find networking events that TV writers go to?

Plus, we look at two new Paper Tease entries.

The Paper Team raises their hand…
