Writers nominated for this year’s primetime Emmys will talk about the stories behind their shows over two days of Zoom panel discussions presented by the WGA West and the Writers Guild Foundation this month.
Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead) will moderate the August 25 panel featuring the nominees for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, and Gloria Calderon Kellett (One Day at a Time) will moderate the August 26 panel featuring nominees for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
