TV writers, who have seen their livelihood threatened by the ascent of unscripted shows, are getting their own reality series. At TCA today, Sundance Channel announced the greenlight of non-fiction series The Writers’ Room. The six-episode half-hour series, done in partnership with Entertainment Weekly, will feature the writers of comedy and drama series in a roundtable talk show format discussing “their greatest choices, toughest decisions and biggest mistakes.” Produced by RelativityREAL, The Writers’ Room is slated to premiere during the second half of 2013.
