[How to: TV] How I hire

It’s pretty simple. I hire people if I can have a good conversation with them. Not an entertaining one. A good conversation is one where they actually listen and understand the points I’m making, I sense that, and in turn I’m really engaged in what they’re saying. It’s also important that – in the words of Dr Phil – they ‘get it’, what the show is.

During lovebites, out of [27] writers, I found 3 who fitted that criteria. Note that it’s not about talent – it’s about aligning with the team.
