Kourtney Kang (showrunner, Doogie Kamealoha, MD; How I Met Your Mother), John Hoffman (co-creator, Only Murders in the Building), and Migizi Pensoneau (Reservation Dogs) talk about why their shows were inevitable in the current TV landscape, good room practices, and revisiting old favorites.
Ali Schouten (show-runner, iCarly), Alissa Nutting (creator, Made for Love), and Lucas Brown Eyes (Young and Hungry; Alexa and Katie) discuss hiring, schedule management, and the importance of doing your writing homework.
Hacks creators Jen Statsky, Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs go in depth on the pitch for the show, writing strong characters, what they get out of a writers' room, and lots more. The first season of Hacks is available on HBO Max and we don't even know why you haven't watched it yet.
