Our pilot this time is Small Town Love by Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern (Trophy Wife, Booksmart). Small Town Love is about a sparring mother and daughter in rural Michigan who are forced to lean on each other when they become pregnant at the same time. Listen to Andrew’s interview with Sarah and Emily to hear about how the first script they wrote together, Booksmart, took eleven years to reach the screen; what Emily learned from working with David Mamet; why they made the transition from film to TV; and how you can tell when an idea will actually make a good TV show. Enjoy!

We're having another live show in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 14th, at 2pm! It'll be at the WGAW HQ 2nd floor event space on 3rd street and Fairfax!! Ticket link and information to come soon but mark your calendars!!

The Wonder Twins are back in the saddle and ready to break down some more titillating bossip! First They're breaking down James' upcoming show in SF for Pride- Manity Kane (come on thru it will be at Oasis SF) where James will be choreographing a Sailor Moon themed dance to Damaged by Danity Kane! Which brings us to some Dawn and Aubrey O'day Related DRAMA!! Next up they talk about the Royal Weddingggggg and how black excellence CAME THRUUUU. In Nnekay's Korner to celebrate Stacey Abram's historic run for governor of Georgia, Nnekay breaks down the forgotten pioneer Shirley Chisholm- who racked up a bunch of first including the first woman to run for president in the democratic party. In James' korner he gets a question from Max Fun Member, Goldilocks about the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis... which, yea is still going down. He covers how this happened and what we can do about it. You wouldn't believe who made a guest appearance in Scandal in the second season? Hint- It's apart of our Maximum Fun family.
