Film Courage: When you take on a TV writing project, how much information does the network give you ahead of time?
Christine Conradt, Screenwriter: It depends. Sometimes they’ll come to me…it will either be the network or the producer (it can come from either). But sometimes it will just be a title. For example…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
In this Film Courage video interview, Screenwriter Christine Conradt shares how she had a lucrative day job but always longed to be a screenwriter.

Ultimately the risk paid off and Christine has now turned one writing job into another, leaving the 9-to-5 world behind for Film and Television.
