Mission to Hollywood

Aired 2000-01. The Hollywood community was responding to a general call for wholesome values to be portrayed in films and on television. Act One: Writing for Hollywood, a religiously motivated group, runs a summer workshop to educate writers who wish to present values but who need to become good writers for movies and television. In this special we heard from the faculty who were aware that TV and film are art forms and respecting them is a key to being taken seriously in the industry. Workshop students and industry professionals profiled the potential effect of this program on the future content of what we see on the screen.
