This week Clay and Chris chat with television and feature film writer, Jaime Browne, about working as a writer and showrunner. Jaime has written for many TV series including Last Man Standing, The Secret Life of Us, Laid, & The Straights, along with writing two features: The King, and most recently The Mule, starring the Hugo Weaving, Angus Sampson, & John Noble. Jaime is now focused on pitching pilots in the US, including a new Sci-Fi series Synapse.
We hope you enjoy this week's episode, and stay tuned for our next episode with award winning Sound Designer/Editor Craig Carter, who's worked on a huge number of feature films, documentaries, and television shows.
Points of Discussion:
- Working with a co-writer vs working alone
- Writing features vs writing for TV
- Pitching series to studios, and putting together series bibles and outlines
- Crediting and the lack of a Showrunner role in the Australian industry
