FROM Nick Allard
Mr Hollywood Goes to Washington; Oscar Rollercoaster We talk to the head of the Motion Picture Association of America about what he hopes to accomplish with a cavalcade of producers, directors and moguls he's unleashing on the nation's capital this week--and we'll ask a seasoned Washington lobbyist what he thinks of their efforts. Plus, the sixth conversation in our series on the business of writing.
Industry insights and lessons learned from memorable guests We have interesting guests on The Business, and sometimes our conversations are too long to fit into one show. This week we give you stories that were too good to leave on the cutting room floor, including some sharp insights on making it in the industry from David Mandel, David Simon, Shawn Levy and Matt Reeves.
