Missing Seinfeld? America's favorite TV show may have aired its final episode, but you can learn how to write in the same style with this screenwriters' workshop from Seinfeld co-producer and It's Like, You Know... executive producer, Peter Mehlman. Hear his take on the inner workings of the popular comedy show and how Jerry Seinfeld, the star, and Larry David, the co-creator, go about their work. Mehlman reveals the elements of a good episode, including: the importance of a plotline for each character, call-backs to previous episodes, turning tragedy into comedy, and the no-hugging rule. Not to mention the secret ingredients: embarrassment, lies, schemes, and lust! After listening to this audio program you'll be on your way to writing the next great American sitcom.
