First, hear Unreal co-creators Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer; co-creator, Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce) and The Brink co-creators Kim Benabib and Roberto Benabib (Weeds; Ally McBeal) discuss comedy styles, going dark, and more. Then, returning pals Jeff Greenstein (Mom; Will & Grace), Josh Friedman (creator, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Stephen Falk (creator, You're the Worst), and Phillip Iscove (co-creator, Sleepy Hollow) join newcomer Will Widger (upcoming feature Lumberjanes) to discuss the state of the industry, their processes, and more.
