    Episode 71: Moving to LA

    In this episode we have a 'zoom' chat (it's all the rage) with Paul Pimenta. Paul didn't even start out wanting to be a scriptwriter! Now he is in LA, writing many episodes of TV, and has an agent. How did that happen? And is it a good move to make?

Nothing Better

If you're looking for a screenwriting podcast that looks at the UK scriptwriting industry specifically, then look no further.

Danny and Tim are both entertaining and informative and tackle a wide variety of subjects related to the topic at hand. This is an absolute must have for those of you looking to find your way into the business of show.

Can't recommend this show enough for aspiring writers or even those who are just interested in the topic.
