During a Wintersession program titled "The Writers' Room," Greg Daniels '85 (left) explained how to find success in writing for television. Daniels and fellow writer Robert Carlock ’95 candidly shared their experiences. "Shows with bad writers and a great cast have worked, but shows with good writers and a bad cast have not,” said Carlock.
