UTOPiA Idea Xchange -- From Writing Cave to the Spotlight: The Reality of Writers in Hollywood (Maxwell's)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are reality TV shows about everything under the sun: fashionistas, athletes, fixer-uppers, housewives, duck hunters, even Donald Trump, but not one about writers. Why?
Reality TV veteran, Brian McDonough (The Voice, Shark Tank), addresses the challenges writers have inside Hollywood (and out) with a humorous look at writing, an activity that takes place, as Stephen King puts it, telepathically — from mind to mind. Watching someone write would be silly, like watching paint drying. It’s an inherently stationary occupation. The act of writing (or reading) contains no action. There is no plot. So, given a reality TV show is not in the works, how do writers break out from behind the keyboard to grab the spotlight??? To find out, mark your calendar to attend this entertaining commentary.
