Let’s Write is a podcast where we think up ideas for our dream movies, and then turn them into scripts, treatments, and posters!

It’s November, and for writers, that marks the beginning of NaNoWriMo!

This year, we’re taking another swing at a TV-length script. For NaNo 2018, we imagined “what if” a second season of Firefly was made as an event miniseries.

For our 2019 project, listeners on Twitter helped us decide what topic we should tackle, submitting and voting on ideas for dream TV shows.

In this episode, we recap last year’s NaNo, discuss what concept we ultimately decided on, and get to work breaking ground on the foundations of the story.

If you’d like to follow along with our research “homework” during this series, here are the shows we suggested to watch for tone and plot inspiration:

  • Twin Peaks S1E1: Northwest Passage
  • True Detective S1E1 : The Long Bright Dark
  • X-Files S4E2: Home
  • Atlanta S1E8: The Club
