Dead Pilots Society

Episode 59: Emerald Fennell Interview (Space Bound After Show)

Episode Summary

Ben Blacker and Andrew Reich bring you Dead Pilots Society, a podcast in which pilots passed over by the networks finally get their due.

Episode Notes

We hope you enjoyed last week’s table read of Space Bound written by Golden Globe-nominated writer/director of Promising Young Woman, Emerald Fennell. We caught up with Emerald in this week’s episode to discuss her pilot and her writing process. She talked about the importance of writing redeeming characters in comedies and why she prefers writing on spec versus pitching. A lesson in attaching producers to a project and a highly anticipated dive into the space world of Beta Complex 622. If you're afraid of spoilers, you should definitely listen to the table read before this interview. But either way, enjoy Andrew's conversation with Emerald Fennell. Thanks for listening!
