Since the inaugural utterance of its now infamous opening line— “ Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”— NBC’s Saturday Night Live has gone on to become one of the most popular, celebrated, and longest-running programs in television history. This legendary late-night sketch show, known for the irreverent manner in which it has poked fun at politics and pop culture, has been a preeminent breeding ground and launching pad for some of the best comedy writers, most talented performers, and biggest stars of the last forty years. This multiple Emmy Award winning show arguably has provided more classic moments of entertainment than any other program in the history of the medium—and it all starts in the writers’ room. Please join us in an engaging discussion with Tim Herlihy and Bryan Tucker to discuss the creative process of script to screen.
