Writing for Al Pacino and the Secrets Of An American Writer's Room | Story Editing with Stacy Osei-Kuffour

In this episode Stacy Osei-Kuffour joins Rhianna and Michael to untangle the labyrinthine world of script and story editing for TV. Who writes what? Where do ideas come from? How do you pitch them? And who gets the credit? Stacy answers all these questions and more as she discusses her contribution to shows such as Hunters, the Emmy award-winning WatchmenRun and PEN15

Welcome to Wrap Party, the podcast that toasts the excellence of the creatives and craftspeople working behind-the-scenes on some of your favourite films and TV shows.



  • Run (TV series). The writers had to get creative in this thrilling rom-com show exec produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, set for the most part on a train, as two ex-lovers go on the, well, run. Buy via Prime Video

  • The Power (TV series). Currently in pre-production with Amazon Studios. We are hotly anticipating this adaptation of Naomi Alderman's novel. 

  • Watchmen (TV series) Damon Lindelof's pulpy, politically-minded drama, based on the graphic novel about a band of masked vigilantes. A perfect playground for Stacy's weird and wild ideas! Buy via Prime Video

  • Lost (TV series). JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof's serpentine story of plane crash survivors stranded on a sinister island. We'd love to know the crazy ideas that *didn't* make it into the show. Watch on Prime Video
