with Linda Aronson
Today’s TV is about forward-planning multiple protagonist serial storylines at speed, ahead of time and often, these days, using flashbacks or complex story fracturing. It’s not magic. Professional TV writers are taught special speed plotting skills little known outside the Writers’ Room. Multi-award winning TV writer and parallel narrative guru Linda discusses insider tricks for advanced story beat construction, plus fractured storytelling in The Serpent, Chernobyl, Narcos and The Queen’s Gambit.
