A panel of New York playwrights who write for television examine whether their work is enhanced or compromised by working in both worlds. New York has always provided a steady stream of talent for the television industry. The recent growth of TV writing away from Los Angeles and the success of long-form TV series on networks like HBO have expanded opportunities for writers. Like actors, these writers move in both worlds; but how do they manage it?
Catherine Sheehy (Chair of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism at Yale School of Drama and Resident Dramaturg at Yale Rep), will moderate a discussion featuring Diana Son (Stop Kiss/Law & Order: Criminal Intent); Itamar Moses (Bach at Leipzig/Boardwalk Empire); Matt Schatz (Oh, Gastronomy!/House of Zuck); and others.
