What Happened at FilAm Creative’s 1st Television Writers Panel?

On Saturday, December 3, 2016, FilAm Creative assembled their first industry expert panel devoted specifically towards writing for television and film.

Much useful information and discussion were presented by the panel’s Filipino American professionals who create and punch up stories for your favorite TV shows today from moderator Dexter Adriano (editor, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Michael Golamco (the upcoming feature, Please Stand By and NBC’s Grimm), Rene Gube (The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Ray Utarnachitt (The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow).
