The Writers Panel with Ben Blacker

The American political system often lends itself to some of TV’s bleakest and most inspiring moments. In this conversation, Kevin Falls (The West Wing), Rosemary Rodriguez (The Good Wife), and Bryan Seabury (SVP Drama Development, CBS) examine working with an existing framework of D.C., what happens when fictional politics meet real-world expectations. and why the subject lends itself to rich storytelling and keeps an audience tuning in. Moderated by Henry Goldblatt (EW).
