Breaking into Television: My Interview with Alex Epstein

Hey, folks--

Just wanted to point you to an interview I recently did with Alex Epstein, TV writer and author of Crafty TV Writing: Thinking Inside the Box and Crafty Screenwriting: Writing Movies That Get Made. Alex writes the "Complications Ensue" blog, which-- if you're not already reading it-- is a terrific blog about TV and film writing.

Anyway, Alex has just posted the first of a four-part interview in which we discuss everything from how to get your scripts into the hands of producers to common mistakes made by aspiring writers to how to pitch reality shows.

Click HERE to check out the interview... and I hope you enjoy!
