Ep. 351: Bad Work = Bad Notes & No Spend February

Liz and Sarah had an insight after a recent notes call about a pitch they’re working on— it’s a lot easier to give good notes on good material.

In Take A Hike, Liz and Sarah share why they’re doing No Spend February and reveal exactly what items are included. Then, in The Craft (& Fain), they discuss why you might want to come up with a tagline for your project — whether it’s a TV pitch or a trip with friends. This week’s Hollywood Hack has made Sarah more calm: Change your smart watch face.

Ep. 348: A New New Year!

All of Sarah and Liz’s New Year momentum has been sucked away by Influenza A and Covid-19. To regain their sense of purpose, they’ve decided that January 16 will be their new New Year’s Day.

Ep. 340: Julia Child & How To Get A Rep With Manager Todd Schulkin

Liz and Sarah talk to one of their oldest friends, Todd Schulkin, who is a manger, producer, and Executive Director of The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy. He’s also the guy who got them their first agent in Hollywood, and he has tips for pre-WGA writers about how to land an agent or manager. (Spoiler alert: A coherent logline is key.) Then they have a Hollywood Hack that will help you turn off the TV and go to sleep: When you’re binging a show, watch the teaser for the next episode, then turn it off. Next, Liz had a Celebrity Sighting — she saw Lisa Rinna THREE TIMES at Fryman Canyon. Finally, Liz has a Julia Child inspired recommendation: The Spot in Carpenteria, home to Julia Child’s favorite burger. (And stay tuned for a Julia Child related button with EP Chuck Reed’s sister, Chef Danielle Reed!)

Liz and Sarah are back to work on several development projects, and after such a long strike they are very much appreciating the beauty of being busy. In A Day In The Life, they talk about how they’re spending their time now that life for WGA writers is getting back to “normal.” One thing they’re happy about? They’re still making time to do things they care about outside of work. Then, in The Craft (& Fain), they talk about why they always take their own notes. This week’s Hollywood Hack is about maintaining friendships: Make sure to stay in touch with people you met on the picket line.

Ep. 323: Strike News & Formatting Fun

Liz and Sarah discuss SAG-AFTRA going out on strike. Will actors on strike pressure the AMPTP to come back to the table? They sure hope so.

EP. 313: WGA Strike Talk With Negotiating Committee Member Nicole Yorkin

Liz and Sarah discuss the WGA strike with their friend Nicole Yorkin, who is a member of the WGA Negotiating Committee. Why do writers view this moment in the business as existential? What is the AMPTP’s stance on AI? How will the unity among all the entertainment unions impact this labor action? Then, in The Craft & Fain, Liz and Sarah talk about how they’re “getting down to business” on their novel. They’ve each committed to writing five hundred words a day, five days a week. This week’s Hollywood Hack will make it easier to share expenses with friends and family: the Tricount app. Finally, Liz recommends a book — Unscripted: The Epic Battle for a Media Empire and the Redstone Family Legacy by James B. Stewart and Rachel Abrams.

Ep. 307: Oh, What The Hell!

As the TV business continues to rapidly evolve, Liz and Sarah have decided to embrace an “oh, what the hell” attitude when it comes to development. If they love a project and want to do it, they’re going to do it — because at this point it’s impossible to judge what will or won’t have a chance for success. In The Craft (& Fain), they branch out from the writing craft to discuss color correction, a process that has a big impact on how a show looks and feels. In Hits & Bombs, they give a Hit to the WGA and especially to the WGA Negotiating Committee. Then they have a Bomb for all the recent rain in LA. This week’s Hollywood Hack comes from a listener — use rubbing alcohol to remove old dry erase marker.

Ep. 302: First Draft Difficulty & Setting Aside Worry

Liz and Sarah are deep into the first draft of the pilot they’re writing — and discovering all over again how hard it is to write a pilot. Creating something out of nothing is never easy! In Take A Hike, Liz talks about how she decided to set aside worry during her recent glamping trip. The result? She was fully present and had an amazing time. Next, in Take Two, Liz and Sarah share more ways to listen to Audio books. This week’s Hollywood Hack will improve your bedtime routine: the Peryton Sleep Headphones Wireless, Bluetooth Sports Headphones. And finally Sarah recommends the iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso from Starbucks.

Ep. 301: The Thrill (& And Terror) Of Being In Control

As Liz and Sarah continue to work on the novel they plan to write, they realize that for once they’re in total control of their fate. That’s exciting — but also scary. There’s no one to blame but themselves if they don’t finish it! In The Craft (& Fain) they talk about how sometimes you should “do a little before you do a lot.” Then Sarah gives Connie a Hit for doing Violet’s hair and make up for her first school dance. And Liz gives herself a Bomb for still not understanding football. (Yay Chiefs!) This week’s Hollywood Hack will make going to a potluck less stressful: be like Sarah and have a party go to. For her? It’s Pavlova. Finally, Liz recommends watching Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence, a three part docuseries on Hulu.

Ep. 298: Liz & Sarah’s 20th Anniversary Trip (Finally!)

Liz and Sarah are finally celebrating their 20th anniversary of being a writing team with a Caribbean cruise on the Regal Princess. Yes, they’re working onboard but they’re having plenty of fun too — including snorkeling over a shipwreck in Grand Cayman. As they look back over twenty years, they reveal the top three things they’ve learned. Most important? The war of attrition never ends, so keep the faith. They also talk about some career highs (collaborating with Marcia Clark) and lows (getting fired from the first show they created, Women’s Murder Club). And this week’s Hollywood Hack will improve your tropical vacation: get a prescription snorkel mask.  Get in touch on Twitter: @sarahmfain & @elizabethcraft Get in touch on Instagram: @Sfain & @LizCraft Visit our website: https://happierinhollywood.com Join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/HappierinHollywood/ Happier in Hollywood is part of ‘The Onward Project,’ a family of podcasts brought together by Gretchen Rubin—all about how to make your life better. Check out the other Onward Project podcasts—Happier with Gretchen Rubin, Side Hustle School, Do The Thing, and Everything Happens with Kate Bowler .

Ep. 293: They Got Dressed Up And Went!

Recently, Liz and Sarah talked about how they were “all dressed up with no place to go” when a pitch meeting was cancelled last minute. Well, they got dressed and they went! Did they sell their pitch in the Zoom Room? Listen to find out. In Take Two, they share stories from listeners in other careers who have also experienced very frustrating last minute cancellations. Then, in Take A Hike, Liz talks about “the joy of getting into it,” even if “it” is out of your comfort zone. Warning: the segment involves discussion of a custom Corgi Christmas sweater. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack might help you sleep better: use a wedge pillow.

Ep. 293: They Got Dressed Up And Went!

Recently, Liz and Sarah talked about how they were “all dressed up with no place to go” when a pitch meeting was cancelled last minute. Well, they got dressed and they went! Did they sell their pitch in the Zoom Room? Listen to find out. In Take Two, they share stories from listeners in other careers who have also experienced very frustrating last minute cancellations. Then, in Take A Hike, Liz talks about “the joy of getting into it,” even if “it” is out of your comfort zone. Warning: the segment involves discussion of a custom Corgi Christmas sweater. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack might help you sleep better: use a wedge pillow.

Ep. 291: All Dressed Up & Freudenfraude

Liz and Sarah discuss how they were all psyched up for a pitch meeting — and then it didn’t happen. The only consolation? Liz hadn’t paid for a blow out. In Take A Hike, they talk about the opposite of schadenfreude — freudenfraude. Especially now, when Hollywood is so chaotic, it’s helpful to take pleasure in others’ good fortune. Then Sarah revisits the Bomb she gave Elon Musk in Take Two. Finally, this week Liz and Sarah have a holiday Hollywood Hack: When someone asks for a gift, get them the exact thing they asked for.

As Sarah and Liz hone a new pitch they realize that the note they often get is the same one that they always give — MORE EMOTION.
