On our first episode, we look at how collaboration happens in one of comedy’s most storied (and tough) environments — the TV writers’ room. It’s where the magic happens, but it can also be one of the most brutally competitive places a creative person will ever work. We talk to two writer-comedians, Anne Lane and Wayne Federman, about their experiences working in writers’ rooms on shows like Rick and Morty and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
