A: Well, in TV you have a little more control and you’re running the show day in and day out. With a screenplay, you’re generally handing it over to the director. With TV, you also get a faster reaction. If they don’t like it, they simply pass. If they do [like it], you’re off and running. With movies, it could be eight years before you find out if anyone is interested.


Q: You wrote an episode of “Community” last year. What was that experience like?

A: It was just an honor. I mean, I love the show. It wasn’t as daunting as writing a whole screenplay. You know the show so well and you have the help of the staff to break the story down and then you go off and do the fun stuff. Then again, writing in general is never easy. • 612-673-7431 • Twitter: @nealjustin
