Gloria Calderón Kellett writes, produces and sometimes directs and even acts in the Netflix sitcom ‘One Day at a Time.’ That title also describes the best way to survive pilot season--those nerve-wracking months early in the year when broadcast networks pick just few new scripts that will get an order for a sample episode. Hoping to launch a new show this year, Calderón Kellett had some scripts in contention, and she decided to tweet her pilot season experience and offer some advice along the way. She gives us a dramatic reading of a few of those threads. Plus, double banter! First, the news banter--Skydance gets some (more) blowback after putting John Lasseter in charge of its animation division. Then, a bonus Oscar banter.
