First Gigs & Big Breaks: A Look at Both Sides of Opportunity

Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Venue: TBA

Breaking into every industry requires a combination of timing, luck, talent, and relationships. For many TV writers, that “big break” is getting a showrunner to take a risk by inviting a newcomer into the writers room for the first time. This unique conversation between pairs of writers, one who took a chance and one who caught a break, explores the relationship from both sides of that first gig – what led to the hire, the ups and downs, and what the opportunity has done for both people involved.

Panelists: Graham Yost & Dave Andron (Justified), Julie Plec & Carina MacKenzie (The Originals), additional panelists TBA
