Reckless Creatives
Real Talk™ with Writer/Director Christopher Derrick
Show Notes

Where do we begin? How about with the raw truth, delivered by the one and only Christopher Derrick.

We dive into his experience breaking into TV writing, the bumps and bruises he got along the way, the challenges of A.I., and even the lessons learned by getting ripped off. Oh, yeah, it's a big, bad world out there in La La Land.

Most importantly, when we shed light on the struggles and realities of being a professional writer, maybe someone can be spared a tiny bit of pain. At least that's our hope. Grab your earbuds, and let's get at it!
