Get inside a TV writers room from the people at the ground level who help make everything possible: a Writers’ Assistant, Script Coordinator, and Showrunners’ Assistant. Have you ever wondered how to break into a room, or what the roles of the support staff looked like? Panelists will share stories of how they landed their jobs, explain their day to day roles and responsibilities, and give advice about ways to navigate the job with success.

Must have an AFF Producers, Conference, Weekend, or Lone Star Badge for entry.
