By Formulaic: A Podcast in Script Writing

TV shows! We all watch them, and some of us even write them. Some shows, however, sort of write themselves with an easily repeated formula that gets filled in like a Mad Libs-style outline. Here, hosts Shelby and James will break down the formula of some of your favorite shows, then attempt to write a script within an hour, all to show you how fun it can be to be FORMULAIC!
