Writing Movies for Fun and Profit: Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant

Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon made their names with such fresh, innovative television comedies as MTV’s beloved cult sketch show The State and Comedy Central’s uproarious Reno 911! They have also written successful screenplays—including the likes of Herbie: Fully LoadedThe PacifierBalls of Fury, and the Night at the Museum films—which have grossed in excess of one billion dollars. Expanding on their new guide about their time in the Tinseltown trenches (Writing Movies for Fun and Profit) Garant and Lennon will hold forth on the process of mainstream Hollywood screenwriting…and earning scads of dough.
