Description

The definitive insider's guide to our current golden age of television, Ben Blacker's The Writers Panel is an ever expanding anthology of live convention panels and intimate in-studio interviews with the writers, producers, and show runners responsible for all the shows you can't stop watching. Over the course of nearly 400 episodes and counting, The Writers Panel has sat across from guests such as Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad), Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele (Key and Peele), Liz Meriwether (New Girl), and Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) to talk about the art and business of creating great television. The Writers Panel is a co-production of the Forever Dog Podcast Network and ATX Television Festival.

In this case study, join the creative team behind Vandal for a detailed look at the series from pitch, to development, to bonafide&nbsp;hit, as they discuss their own influences and fascination with the “true crime” genre.</p><p><strong>Panelists:&nbsp;</strong>Dan Perrault (Co-Creator/EP),&nbsp;Tony Yacenda (Co-Creator/EP/Director), Dan Lagana (Showrunner/EP),&nbsp;Joe Farrell (VP of Longform Content, Funny or Die/EP)</p><p>Recorded Live at ATX Television Festival June 8, 2018</p><p>CONNECT W/ BEN BLACKER &amp; THE WRITER'S PANEL ON SOCIAL MEDIA:</p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/BENBLACKER" target="_blank">https://twitter.com/BENBLACKER</a></p><p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TVWritersPanel" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/TVWritersPanel</a></p><p>THE WRITER'S PANEL IS A CO-PRODUCTION OF THE FOREVER DOG PODCAST NETWORK AND THE ATX TELEVISION FESTIVAL.</p><p><a href="http://foreverdogproductions.com/fdpn/podcasts/the-writers-panel/" target="_blank">http://foreverdogproductions.com/fdpn/podcasts/the-writers-panel</a></p><p><a href="http://atxfestival.com/" target="_blank">http://atxfestival.com</a></p>

Romance and YA TV
7244
A double-header recorded at ATX, a Television Festival earlier this year. First, “Keeping the Romance Alive” with Hart Hanson (creator, Bones), Liz Tigelaar (showrunner, Casual; creator, Life Unexpected), Carter Covington (creator, Faking It), and Jennie Snyder Urman (creator, Jane the Virgin). How do writers keep a show going that's centered around a romance? What pitfalls can that bring, how do they 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? Moderated by Jarret Wieselman (Buzzfeed). Then, Jarret is joined by Carina MacKenzie (The Originals) to talk about “Young Adult TV” with Tigelaar, Covington, Anna Fricke (developer, Being Human), and Rebecca Serle (Famous in Love). The creators of these “teen centered” TV shows discuss what they believe classifies a show as YA, what storylines they will and will not broach when it comes to this age range, and how they have mastered writing from the teenage perspective while garnering audiences of all ages.

Leading characters have shifted from heroes to anti-heroes, and stories have moved from clear good vs. evil to murky immorality that leaves audiences unsure whom they should root for. Today’s leading drama producers and writers discuss current trends in their genre, including: the expansion to dark and depraved worlds, advantages (or challenges) that come with network or cable (or online), viewing habits of audiences, and if any of these factors have an impact on how they choose to tell their story.

How everyone you know can be talking, tweeting and watching a show, but it still gets canceled? And why do ratings equal cancellation on one network but a hit on another?

Club), and Tara Ariano (Previously.tv) to discuss TV's growth in the past decade, where its going, and their contributions to a show's fate.
