Tim Kring: ‘I was very interested in writers who wanted to write short stories’

In a video short about the scriptwriters working on the new TV show Touch, producer and writer Tim Kring revealed what he is looking for when hiring a screenwriter.

Kring created hit television shows like Crossing Jordan and Heroes, so his advice is valuable for all the aspiring screenwriters in the audience. If you want more writing advice, we interviewed 24 producer Howard Gordon about his new novel, Hard Target.

Check it out: “One of the things I set out to do in terms of finding writers for this show–I was very interested in writers who wanted to write short stories. In essence, short stories. So I was interested in writers that were really good at creating characters. Who really wanted to tell stories that were contained, and had a beginning, a middle and an end.” (Via Antoine Wilson)
