Writer/Producer Jim Patterson (Two and a Half Men/Call Me Kat) conducted an open session with the FTVM Mitchell Scholars on Friday, September 15, 2023, wherein he opened the floor to questions about how to navigate a career in a writers' room. Interspersed with personal anecdotes and several doses of laughter, Patterson left the scholars with excellent advice on breaking into the industry - and on making oneself an invaluable asset.
