#84 - Paul Leyden

Monday, January 12, 2015 1:00 PM | Ansuya Nathan (Administrator)

After 15 years Stateside, multi-hypenate Paul Leyden (THE CLEANERS, AS THE WORLD TURNS, CANAL ROAD) knows a few things. As a writer/director/producer, he shares stories on how to woo Sony money men, the constraints of writing to locations, how best to win over novelists. (Hint: flattery) and the subtle art of timing when selling scripts. As an actor, he's lived the high life in NYC, killed numerous cellphones and survived many a pilot season. And yes, those last two are related. But my favourite is a tale about picking a show with Heather Locklear and Blair Underwood (LAX) over one about being lost on a deserted island...
Pilot season is coming... Please don't take it out on your phone!!
