This week on “The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat” podcast, we spoke with Jen Grisanti, an acclaimed script and career consultant, writing instructor, blogger, and the author of three books: Story Line: Finding Gold in Your Life Story, TV Writing Tool Kit: How to Write a Script That Sells, and Change Your Story, Change Your Life. Jen began her career as an assistant to none other than the Mister, Aaron Spelling himself, who served as her mentor for 12 years. She quickly climbed the ranks and eventually ran Current Programs at Spelling Television Inc., covering all of Spelling’s shows including Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, and Charmed.
“The Blaze with Lizzie and Kat” podcast is joined this week by screenwriter, Beverly Hills, 9210 [sic] fan, and thrower of astrological shade, @horoscopesbygil. We first heard about Gil Hizon when our previous guest Denise Hewett announced that his script Finding James had recently been optioned; you can read the screenplay on Scriptd. Gil will be teaching a workshop at Script Anatomy in L.A. on June 17, “The Business of TV Writing for the Emerging TV Writer.”
