Emmy nominated actress Jenna Fischer (The Office, Blades of Glory) talks to Liz and Sarah about her new book The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide. From headshots gone wrong, to a breakdown in Pottery Barn, to finally understanding that it takes fifty no’s to get one yes, Jenna’s experiences will help anyone trying to make it in Hollywood and beyond. Then Liz and Sarah share an update on their Facebook group and the growing Happier in Hollywood community (hint — you should join!) and reveal this week’s Hits and Bombs — Liz bonded with other 2nd grade families at a resort in Palm Springs while Sarah traumatized Violet with a book about death. Plus, a Hollywood Hack that will make you feel like a professional photographer — portrait setting on the iPhone!
A podcast about how to be happier, healthier, saner, more creative, more successful, and more productive in a back-biting, superficial, chaotic, unpredictable, and fundamentally insane world.
ABOUT HAPPIER IN HOLLYWOOD
Hosted by veteran television writers/producers/showrunners Liz Craft and Sarah Fain, who've been friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Happier in Hollywood lives at the intersection of friendship and work.
Whether you live in Hollywood, Dollywood, or somewhere in between, Liz and Sarah demystify Tinseltown by making career and personal struggles universal. Guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Hollywood’s male-dominated entertainment industry. Along the way they've learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
Happier in Hollywood is part of Gretchen Rubin’s The Onward Project , a family of podcasts full of concrete, actionable ideas for how you can make your life happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.
