Writers are unfortunately often perceived to be at the bottom of the food chain in the feature world. But in the world of TV, it’s a very different story.
Sheila Callaghan is a writer on United States of Tara, now in its third season. In the past year she began work writing the I Dream of Jeannie movie and sold a spec script called Over/Under to USA, currently filming. In 2010, Callaghan was named one of "10 Screenwriters to Watch" in Variety magazine.
Showrunners, executive producers, head writers, and writer-creators of shows like Castle, Grey's Anatomy, United States of Tara, and Lie to Me are all present to discuss the ins and outs of their projects.
