132: Jamie Nash – Save the Cat and the TV Business

On this episode, we spoke with Jamie Nash, writer of Save the Cat! Writes for TV: The Last Book on Creating Binge-Worthy Content You’ll Ever Need.  Jamie Nash has been a working screenwriter for more than a decade.  He’s written feature films for Lionsgate, Haxan Films and Nickelodeon, among others.  He is primarily a genre writer for Horror and Family (a weird combo, right?), he somehow makes it work.  His new book SAVE THE CAT! WRITES FOR TV is now available here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0984157697/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_TCZGP3Q9AAY1CGNW5BNG.
