Hello Quinton Peeples

So, what exactly is the job of an Executive Story Editor? Give us the TV Production 101 version.

Wow. That's a good one. It's just a fancy title for "writer". In our case on FF it doesn't mean much else, since the entire staff breaks story together, does the outline together and then passes on the actual script writing to the assigned writer. It may be different on other shows, but I really don't have any specific duties that Ian, Scott, Seth, Lisa or Dawn & Nicole don't have. Only David and Marc have larger and more complex jobs. We "just" write. And believe me, on this show, that's plenty!
