Multiple Emmy-winner SETH MACFARLANE is the young mogul and hyper-hyphenate behind "The Family Guy" and "American Dad". He's also many of their voices. Here he tells you how he became the youngest person ever to create his own animated prime-time show, lessons he's learned, his writers' room protocol now, and one spec script he won't read. (trt 54:48)
Multiple Emmy-winner and mad genius LARRY CHARLES is on a comic vision-quest that has taken him from writing "Seinfeld" to directing "Borat". In between, his magical mystery tour has included Writing and Executive Producing "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Entourage", "Mad About You", "Dilbert" and "The Tick". Oh and by the way directing Bob Dylan in "Masked & Anonymous". In this freewheeling conversation he reveals how he and Larry David 'cracked the code' of "Seinfeld", shares the joys of 'soft-scripting' and comes to terms with his own shadow self! (trt 65:00)
Multiple Emmy-nominee GARY JANETTI is the engaging, articulate Writer and Consulting Producer for "The Family Guy" and "Will & Grace" where he worked his way up to Executive Producer and showrunner. Now he's created his own show for NBC. Here he offers candid, in-depth criteria for spec scripts, gives examples of 'sit-com speak', and helps you understand how to use character and situation to generate more comedy. (trt 63:09)
Emmy-winner ROB COHEN has had his hand in more pilots than an Air Force proctologist, to quote Dana Gould, co-creator of Rob's short-lived cult hit "Super Adventure Team". Here, Rob dispenses wisdom (and war stories) from the writers' rooms of "The Ben Stiller Show", "The Simpsons", "Saturday Night Live", "American Dad" and "Just Shoot Me", including advice on how to ace an interview, submitting sketch packets, and demographic factors that help your odds of getting hired.
