    Screenwriter/Producer Tara Hernandez of The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon

    Screenwriter/Producer Tara Hernandez of The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon

    Tara Hernandez started working on The Big Bang Theory as an assistant to the executive producer in season 4, and became a staff writer in the middle of season 5. From there she rose in the ranks to be a co-executive producer, helping to craft the series finale before moving to work on the show’s spin-off Young Sheldon.

    The key to pitching sitcoms – there’s the event and then there’s the story. The event is the thing that happens but the story is her emotional realization that comes from the event… So for my first story that sold on Big Bang Theory was about the time Bernadette was getting married and Amy was going overboard so the girls decide to go dress shopping without Amy. That was the event that happened and then, because she was so devastated, Sheldon had to step up as a boyfriend and comfort her and it lead to their first cuddle.

    It feels very paint by numbers so it seems so easy - but it's not.

    As soon as I get good and comfortable I want to take a risk. To challenge myself.

    Denise Hewett - How I Wrote That

    Denise Hewett founded Scriptd, a script database for the entertainment industry (think google for scripts) that is a pipeline for diversity and content discovery, creating a script culture similar to the book culture so the public can pay to read scripts for the first time ever (like e-books) and upvote them on the site. “What’s cool about our platform is that because it’s inclusive you can go on there and read all kinds of different stories.”

    “I think the thing that breaks the noise, that always makes money, that pushes the cultural zeitgeist, is the thing that hasn’t been done before.”
