About the Event

Writers and producers from the latest crop of TV Westerns share insight into the creation of their series, how they’re reimagining the genre, and why stories out of the American West continue to inspire. Panelists include Hunt Baldwin (writer and executive producer of Longmire), Kevin Murphy (writer and executive producer of The Son and Defiance), and John Wirth (writer and executive producer of Hap and Leonard, Hell on Wheels, and The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.).
Select galleries and the café will be open with a limited menu before the program. 
Produced in partnership with the Writers Guild Foundation. For more information, visit the WGFoundation.org.
