Episode #8 - Ten Year Overnight Success

Dec 04, 2016, 03:25 PM

Supernatural and American Crime screenwriter Davy Perez joins us to share stories about his first SPN episode "American Nightmare," and what might be coming up next in season 12. We talk continuity (how does a brand-new staff writer pull off a well-executed throwback to twelve seasons of canon, and what are some of the past episodes that most shaped Davy's interpretation of the Winchesters?) the influence of Catholic guilt, and what's in store for Castiel in Davy's next episode, which is currently shooting.

We also discuss his experience as a successful applicant for the much-lauded Disney/ABC writing program, the on- and off-screen diversity of American Crime and the difference in structure of the various writers' rooms he's been a part of, including the current process over at Supernatural HQ. 

Each episode, our Not About The Weather hosts and their guests will bring an obsession to share and a grievance to air from the their experiences in the world of pop culture, fandom, or sometimes, just plain old life.
