INSIDE THE WRITERS ROOM: S.W.A.T. (Co-Hosted by Austin Film Festival & HUMANITAS)

Step DEEP inside the writers room of CBS original series S.W.A.T. for a wide-ranging Q & A with co-creators and Executive Producers Shawn Ryan and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas. Wonder what it REALLY takes to run a successful writers’ room? And what you need to do to ENSURE that you bring diverse voices to your room? Or the secret to breaking into the most hallowed real estate in Hollywood—“the room?” How about the difficulties in writing a modern police procedural and the challenges in tackling controversial and political topics that are often ignored in the world of network television? Shawn and Aaron have the answers.
