Watch: The 2016 WGA Awards Television Nominees Talk About Their Craft

The 68th Annual Writers Guild Awards is happening tomorrow night. The ceremony celebrates the normally relatively little-known writers behind acclaimed films and television programs.

Earlier this year the SGA-AFTRA Foundation presented a panel featuring the writers of television shows that were nominated for WGA awards in the “Drama Series,” “Comedy Series,” “New Series,” “Long Form Original” and “Comedy/Variety – Sketch” categories.

The panel included Kim Caramele (Inside Amy Schumer), Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), Dan Lyons (Silicon Valley), Adam Rapp (Flesh & Bone), and Joe Weisberg & Joel Fields (The Americans). The conversation was moderated by WGAE President Michael Winship.
