It’s far more work and far more responsibility than writing a movie. And the most surprising thing (for me) is that it’s actually quite a bit more than just writing scripts. The writer/EP is expected to be heavily involved in the everyday decision-making, much more than the writer of a film is. On a film, the writer is a bit like a passive observer to the process. On a tv series, the writer is right there in the trenches — everything from budget meetings (ugh) to vfx to casting sessions and so on. It’s basically what I’m doing from the moment I get up to the moment I go to bed, and it will be for several months. For a screenwriter, it’s absolutely the biggest beast of a job that’s out there, but if you’re passionate about the project, if you’re personally invested, if you really love it, it’s unequivocally the most fun you could possibly have. In the case of Hieroglyph, for me, it’s an unmitigated blast.
