#120 An Inside Look At Writing For Television with Nick Wootton

• 46 min

Unless you've been living under a rock 🪨, you know that we are in a Writers’ Strike. 🪧 So, today I'm replaying an episode with Emmy Award winner, Nick Wooten. Nick is a TV writer 📺 and that's who we need to hear from right now. He’s worked on big shows like NYPD Blue, Law & Order and Stumptown, just to name a few.  In this episode, Nick talks about being branded as a writer for network television and what it means to change the narrative of the creative work you do. He emphasizes the idea that expansion beyond the scope of work you've been recognized for requires taking action – and not just thinking about it. And Nick is such a generous person. He really lets us into his creative process.  So think of this episode as one more way of showing up for the WGA right now and see what it is like to live a writer's life. But don't fool yourself. Go down to the end of the show notes to find some resources about how to further support the WGA ➡ Join us on the Picket Line so we can help these incredible writers who change the narrative of what it means to live in this country and in this world.  And to all my writers out there, thank you. I send you a ton of support right now. 💗 I know this is uncomfortable. I also just want to give you the stamina you need to keep showing up in this fight and to fight for what is right. We stand with you. Thank you for tuning in to this episode of Brian Breaks Character! If you loved this episode, please subscribe and leave an honest review.
