Part comedy, part tragedy, it’s the life of a writing team trying to make it in Hollywood. We’ve sold movies, we’re in the Writer’s Guild, we’ve pitched TV shows to networks – but we’re still working on our big break. Our show is about writing, Hollywood and our experiences on the way to…we wish we knew what.

    Show #43: Discrimination

    Show #43: Discrimination

    Show #42: Between Scenes

    Show #42: Between Scenes

    That's a good time for things to happen in a screenplay.

    In real life, though, it's a good time to do a podcast.  While we're waiting for, well, anything to happen, we do a quick career check-in and answer MORE listener mail.

Fun

Great stuff about both how to write and the life of a writer.

Shame they just stopped the podcast with no explaination.

Still worth a listen even if it's a few years old.

Hang with these Dudes

These guys are (sometimes painfully) honest. This is mostly about all the relational junk required to "make it", the meetings, generals, the waiting process, the ups and downs... Thankfully there's not too much "how to write" crap, or "proper brad/formatting bull****. These are real guys. Highly recommended for those just breaking in or wanting to break in. I give them 4 stars only because I don't want to seem like a syncophantic pussy by giving them 5.
