Description

Learn from the masters! The Writers Guild Foundation is proud to present this special spring interview series, which will take place at the Writers Guild Theater. The series is part of the Foundation’s ongoing Writers on Writing program. A reception in the theater lobby will follow the session.

Milch is one of television’s most revered writers. He won several awards for his first script for Hill Street Blues, and has not looked back. After many seasons on Hill Street Blues he co-created NYPD Blue with Steven Bochco and Brooklyn South with Bochco, Bill Clark and William M. Finkelstein. He is now the creator and producer of HBO’s Deadwood. Be awed and inspired.

Four-time Emmy Award winner David Milch is Executive Producer and Co-Creator, along with Steven Bochco, of the history-making police drama NYPD BLUE. The highly-rated series set a new record garnering a total of 26 Emmy Nominations and winning six Emmy Awards for the 1993-94 season, as well as the Emmy Award for Best Drama Series in 1994-1995. Most recently, Milch won the Emmy for Best Writing in a Drama for the 1996-1997 and 1997-1998 seasons.

A light reception sponsored by Chipotle and Pravda Vodka will follow the event.

About the Ticket Supplier: Writers Guild Foundation

Originally founded in 1966 by James R Webb and a group of other prominent screenwriters, the Writers Guild Foundation has evolved considerably over the last decade. For years its library was its major program, and today its focus is on the two areas of historical preservation and education. Working closely with the Writers Guild of America, west, the Foundation provides a number of services and programs to both working writers and the public.

In recent years the Foundation has developed a broad range of initiatives designed to:

- preserve the history of screenwriting as an artform

-promote writing for film and television as literature in its own right

- collect and preserve the best and most representative film and television writing from each year for present and future generations to study

-provide primary and continuing educational opportunities for professional writers and students

-and raise public consciousness about what writers do and the importance of good writing in the collaborative arts of film and television.
