Mythology: Creating (and Obeying) Your Own Rules

FRIDAY, 10:30 AM
SFA Ballroom

When people think about “mythology” in a TV series, they often think “supernatural” — but it’s not just the sci-fi genre that needs a rule book.  Whether a series is set in an alternate time period, a certain socioeconomic level, or a new world of immortal beings, both genre and non-genre writers/producers/creators face a plethora of pros and cons related to creating their worlds.  Listen as they discuss anecdotes related to mythologies that have both helped and hurt a series.

Panelists: Richard Hatem, Remi Aubuchon, Jane Espenson, Winnie Holzman, Dmitry Lipkin

Moderator: Todd VanDerWerff
