With the growth and popularity of webseries, this week on the WGA podcast, Third & Fairfax, the guest is Issa Rae, who created (and starred in ) the successful web show, The Misdventures of Awkward Black Girl, which she then followed-up with The Choir. The success of these series got her a pilot deal at HBO to develop a program there. She's interviewed by writer Amy Aniobi, who works on the HBO series Silicon Valley.
Also for the writer geeks among you, the podcast includes a discussion with Laurie Espinoza about the services provided by the Contracts Department, and the importance of sending in your contracts. So, take notes.
