Alex and Nick invite Cinqué Lee, indie filmmaker and writer on Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It, to have a fascinating discussion about transitioning from movies to television, as well as adapting features to TV series.
How does the writers’ room of She’s Gotta Have It work? How do life experiences help shame themes and characters? How does writing TV compare to writing ongoing issues of a comic? What is it like working for Jim Jarmusch? What are lessons to take into writing from being on set and from acting?
