Being in a Writing Team ft. Kelly Lynne D’Angelo (PT12)

Being in a Writing Team ft. Kelly Lynne D’Angelo (PT12)

Alex and Nick are joined by comedy writer Kelly Lynne D’Angelo to discuss what it’s like to be in a TV writing team (with Nick himself).

We talk about their creative and writing process, how they pitch in a writers’ room, how they present themselves in general meetings, how they complete each other, and the benefits (or drawbacks) of being in a writing team over being a solo writer.

Plus, we finally explain what a “paper team” is! (Not something the WGA likes.)



1 – The creative process of a writing team (00:36)
2 – Dealing with writing rooms and the business side (21:23)
3 – Resources, how to start a writing team, and who to choose as a partner (39:49)

Hi there!

Alex Freedman

I'm Alex Freedman, the writer behind TV Calling.

I started this site in 2008 to chronicle my own journey in television writing.

693 posts and 9 years later, TV Calling has also become a comprehensive resource dedicated to the full TV writing industry — from spec to success.

Everything here is written by yours truly (unless otherwise credited), so feel free to blame me for any missed deadlines.

I hope you'll answer your television calling, and join me in this creative journey.

Write on.

P.S.: New around? You should start here.
