Welcome to Paper Team, a podcast about television writing and becoming a TV writer.

We're two writers - a comedic Aussie and a dramatic Frenchman - who deconstruct the craft of television writing (pilots, specs, story, character, etc.), and the TV business itself (breaking in, representation, networking, staffing, etc.).

When you become a patron, in addition to supporting our long-running podcast, you will get more content, more advice and become a part of our TV writing community:

Get More Content
Joining our Patreon gets you access to more of what you love about the show - including our new monthly "Paper Patron" mini-episodes where we answer your personal industry questions and give additional TV writing tips.
Patrons also receive exclusive full-length bonus episodes plus "cheat sheets" of our most popular content - more TV pilot analysis, script commentaries, and helpful lessons.
On top of that, Patrons will obtain an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at our upcoming "Paper Team Mentorship", where we guide one of our listeners through the process of writing a new TV pilot.

Get More Advice
Becoming a Patron of Paper Team gives you privileged access to what we do, including insight and behind-the-scenes access to our new "Paper Team Mentorship" where we help one of our listeners develop their original pilot script.
In addition to advice from us, you'll also get the opportunity to have your questions answered directly from some of our guests. Past guests include TV writers/producers from shows like BoJack Horseman, Riverdale, Altered Carbon, Queen Sugar, Into the Badlands, Superstore, Harley Quinn, Animaniacs, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and many more!

Join Our Community

Finally, becoming a Patron of Paper Team invites you to be part of our TV writing community. Our private, curated Facebook group is filled with fans and friends of Paper Team and TV Calling. We try to make this a real look into the world of Paper Team. We post about upcoming episodes, TV writing news, as well as opinion polls that influence upcoming topics/guests. Patrons also get early access to tickets for our mixers and live events - which fill up quickly.


Why are we on Patreon?
As our podcast grows, it gets more expensive to maintain. There's equipment, editing, hosting, transcripts, venues... And, sadly, we're not making the big bucks yet.
Patreon allows our listeners (you!) to make ongoing contributions to keep Paper Team going. Your support means we can continue to produce high-quality content on a weekly basis without compromise. 

Paper Team is a labor of love, so it means everything to help our TV writing community, including our audience. We firmly believe in "paying it forward". This is our way of giving others the advice and opportunities we wished we had when we first started out. 
That's why our goal with Patreon is to not only allow our listeners to sponsor the show, but to offer value to those Patrons as well. We hope you can support the show in your own way.

Thank you for considering helping us out with your contribution. If you can't become a patron at this time, we still appreciate your listenership! :)
