Ep. 145: The (TV Business) Times They Are A-Changin’

Happier in Hollywood - February 20, 2020 - 25:09

It’s a small world! Liz and Sarah share an email from Kate Silver, the writer of the Spirit Magazine article “Turning Pink” that they mention in their American Beauties pitch bonus episode. Then they talk to writer Ben Acker about his new Audible Original, CUT AND RUN. The TV business is ever-changing, and more and more writers (like Ben and his writing partner Ben Blacker) are diving into the world of narrative audio. In The Mailroom, Liz and Sarah finally address a question that’s been on listeners’ minds. As the WGA dispute with the ATA continues, what are their thoughts on getting a new agent? This week’s Hollywood Hack provides an easy alternative to shredding documents: the Wide Identity Protection Roller. Finally, Liz and Sarah had a RHBH Celebrity Sighting at Fryman Canyon — Lisa Rinna (and, yes, she was dancing when they saw her.)Kate Silver:https://www.thekatesilver.com/Ben Acker:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0009921/Ben Blacker:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3011071/Cut And Run:https://www.audible.com/ep/title/?asin=B082YHVMCG&source_code=GO1GB12609141890JG&device=d&&cvosrc=ppc.google.%2Bcut%20%2Band%20%2Brun&cvo_campaign=1678393327&cvo_crid=415526018380&Matchtype=b&gclid=Cj0KCQiAkKnyBRDwARIsALtxe7hZq1Q_fll-BKF5NoWLnNwoo_B2Ss4mxJGgF8TpAF42_YgvsojyEjUaAkQZEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.dsWide Identity Protection Roller:https://www.thegrommet.com/products/guard-your-idwide-identity-protection-rollerLisa Rinna:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisa_Rinna

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.
