During Covid , people fanatically and faithfully binge watched all the amazing television series, bantering and comparing notes on what happened on which episode of which series with family and friends, the water cooler chat of today but now on ZOOM!
Who creates these shows that you get to enjoy? So many people make it happen. Often times a different director for each episode. Groups of writers and different writers for each episode. What is it like doing this? Let's find out from our guest:
