Producing Writing

More About Showrunner Rules and Writers’ Rooms

So I’ve been meaning to do a few more posts about screenwriting and I realized I never followed up on “The 11 Laws of Showrunning by Javier Grillo-Marxuach” which I wrote about back in April… and which shows how the year is racing away from me.

You see, I meant to follow up the next week with this interview with Javier Grillo-Marxuach where he talks about the 11 Laws, his books Shoot This One and Shoot That One, and writing-producing in general. There’s also mention of Jeff Lieber’s “Showrunner Rules” as well as Grillo-Marxuach’s podcast with fellow writer-producer Jose Molina called Children of Tendu which spills the tea on screenwriting in a very illuminating way.

I appreciate especially in the interview how he mentions how different shows have different needs and that balance between rigidity and flexibility in planning.
