American Vandal: Orchestrating The Perfect (Un)True Crime
Last fall, in the midst of pop culture’s ongoing obsession with all things “true crime,” Netflix’s American Vandal arrived just in time to set social media ablaze with one tantalizing question: Who drew the dicks? Like amateur documentarians Peter and Sam, viewers found themselves enamored not only by the show’s central mystery (uncovering the perpetrator of a costly, phallic prank), but the precision with which the series had satirized the genre itself.

Authors & Showrunners: Creating Together
A TV series based on a book is not a new concept, but the author typically has little to do with the show. These creators and authors have a unique relationship where the two worked hand-in-hand to craft the series, delete (and create) characters, and decide which plot points needed to be retooled vs. done away with completely. On this panel they will discuss how they worked together, conflicts that may have arisen, and how you take a book and turn it into a TV show.

Bottle Episodes: Uncorked
A "bottle episode," by most definitions, includes 1) a single story, 2) limited cast, and is 3) confined to a single set. However, while these episodes may have begun as a practical way to save time and money (or get writers out of a bind), they’ve since become a creative experiment, forcing shows (and viewers) to challenge how they engage with the established world by breaking form. From live performances, to tense showdowns and dramatic game-changers, join us as we pop the top on some of TV’s most inventive and memorable bottle episodes, with the writers & producers behind them.

Breaking Bad: Saul's Origin Story presented with Entertainment Weekly
Great Television comes from great characters, and as proven by both Breaking Bad‘s Walter White and Better Call Saul‘s Saul Goodman (aka Slippin’ Jimmy), Vince Gilligan is nothing short of a genius when it comes to creating the unlikely hero. Coupled with an acute sense of tone and timing, it’s no wonder that the rise and demise of these characters lend themselves to some of television’s greatest success. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Breaking Bad and the highly anticipated season four premiere of Better Call Saul, TV Camp revisits the episode that sparked the spin-off prequel - Breaking Bad season two’s “Better Call Saul” - followed by a conversation with executive producer Vince Gilligan and star Bob Odenkirk as they discuss collaboration, character inception, and their creative journey across the two series.
