Then they Amplify a new TV show starring Roselyn Sanchez — ‘Til Jail Do Us Part. In The Craft (& Fain), Liz and Sarah share a tip they learned from an essay on writing by Ann Patchett — don’t let yourself start a new novel until you’ve finished the one you’re writing.

About The Show

Veteran TV writers Liz Craft and Sarah Fain demystify Hollywood by making career and personal struggles universal.
