It's all about the "bullet train!" Liz and Sarah discuss the notion of quiddity (the inherent essence of someone or something) and how "bullet train" is the quiddity of The Fix. Then they share their hectic schedule on the first day of shooting -- and it's not all writing -- a 7am call time, a notes call, and a check-in with the lead actors all before 10:30am!

About The Show

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