Writing for creative T.V. seems like such a mystery doesn’t it? You never see any of the writer’s faces or know anything about the process. Well, that will change once you watch this featurette from the cult classic Community!

This short extra takes you behind the scenes to one of the best episodes in season 2 and dives a bit into the writing process. Honestly, watching it I felt a sense of community (pun intended) with the writers of the show. The way they talk about revisions and deadlines is the way that myself and every writer I know feels about them.

It was nice to see that no matter if you’re writing for a big budget T.V show, or a small, underfunded, understaffed tenacious production, it’s all the same.
