Ep. 94: Good Work Doesn’t Happen After Dinner
Liz and Sarah discuss good (and bad) time management skills— for showrunners, and anyone else in a leadership position. A couple tips: give feedback instead of taking on the work yourself, and have an out time. Then, in Take Two, they revisit Sarah’s zen acceptance of L.A. traffic. This week’s business-savvy Hollywood Hack comes from Mandeville TV’s Director of Development, Lea Cuello: pre-Google the person you (or your boss) are meeting with! Finally, Liz shares her Fryman Canyon Celebrity Sighting: Kyle Richards!Links:WGA Showrunner Training Program: https://www.wga.org/members/programs/showrunner-trainingCarol Barbee: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0053322/Chris Cantwell: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3437456/?ref_=tt_ov_wrChris Rogers: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4815022/?ref_=tt_ov_wrHalt and Catch Fire: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2543312/?ref_=nv_sr_1Joss Whedon: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0923736/?ref_=nv_sr_1Dollhouse: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135300/?ref_=nv_sr_1Mekhi Phifer: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001616/?ref_=nv_sr_1Lea Cuello: http://mandfilms.com/about/lea-cuello/Channing Dungey: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1055381/Kyle Richards: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0724202/?ref_=nv_sr_1Photo by Julian Hochgesang on Unsplash

About The Show
Veteran TV writers Liz Craft and Sarah Fain demystify Hollywood by making career and personal struggles universal. Friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Tinseltown’s male-dominated entertainment industry, guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic. Along the way they've learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
