Keeping the Romance Alive: Falling In Love on TV

Date: Saturday, 6/11
Time: 4:30 PM
Venue: SFA Assembly Room

Who doesn’t love a good love story? The beautiful anxiety of a love triangle? Rooting for one “team’ or another? But how long can a “will they, won’t they” story sustain a TV series? Hear from writers whose TV series centered around a romantic through line, what pitfalls that can bring, and how to keep an audience caring through the third, fourth, and fifth break ups…or even more, after the central couple commits for the long haul, or worse decides to leave the show.

Panelists: Hart Hanson (Bones), Jennie Snyder Urman (Jane the Virgin), Leila Gerstein (Hart of Dixie), Liz Tigelaar (Casual), Carter Covington (Faking It)
Moderator: Jarett Wieselman (BuzzFeed)
