TV SHOWRUNNERS AND FEATURE DIRECTORS MENTORING YOU
Wanted to let you know the new Supermentors Six Week In-person and Teleconference Classes are starting next week and there are a few slots left.
I mention the term “showrunners.” To clarify, a showrunner is a writer-executive producer who runs a network comedy or drama, the top dog. These include guys like Joss Whedon, J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, etc. They often also create the hit shows they’re running.
The previous class in West Hollywood had amazing speakers, including showrunners Joe Dougherty (thirtysomething, SAVING GRACE), Rockne O’Bannon (FARSCAPE, ALIEN NATION, SEAQUEST) and David Simkins (WAREHOUSE 13), plus feature and music video director Neil Johnson (HUMANITY’S END). Each of these personally coached every student, helping them get pilots read, major auditions scheduled and effective reels shot. The new class promises equally great heavy-hitters — in fact, one of the STUDENTS in the new class just released a feature starring Andy Garcia and Ray Liotta! Another is an actress who’s worked directly with David Mamet and David Simon in their TV series THE WIRE and THE UNIT Don’t miss out — all you need is the right advice to really make things happen.
