As the TV business continues to rapidly evolve, Liz and Sarah have decided to embrace an “oh, what the hell” attitude when it comes to development. If they love a project and want to do it, they’re going to do it — because at this point it’s impossible to judge what will or won’t have a chance for success. In The Craft (& Fain), they branch out from the writing craft to discuss color correction, a process that has a big impact on how a show looks and feels. In Hits & Bombs, they give a Hit to the WGA and especially to the WGA Negotiating Committee. Then they have a Bomb for all the recent rain in LA. This week’s Hollywood Hack comes from a listener — use rubbing alcohol to remove old dry erase marker. Finally, this week Liz recommends a beautiful new book — Finding The Words by Colin Campbell.
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.
