Thought you guys might be interested in these new DVD's, hot off the press from the Writers Guild Foundation...


The Writers Guild Foundation has released two new titles in its popular Writers on Writing DVD series - Inside the Writers Room with Lost and Michael Patrick King.

Inside the Writers Room with Lost is a special panel discussion with the creators of the phenomenally popular ABC television series. Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and writers Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Elizabeth Sarnoff talk about the story development and writing process on one of the hottest TV series in years.

Michael Patrick King is a writer/producer most renowned for executive producing Sex and the City in its latter seasons, and for writing and directing the film adaptation of the series. This disc is essential for fans of the series and for aspiring writers of romantic comedies.

Writers on Writing is a series of one-on-one (or in some cases, one-on-several) DVD interviews with Writers Guild Foundation moderators about the exceptional careers of some of the top screenwriters working today.

Both Inside the Writers Room with Lost and Michael Patrick King are available online.
