Advice on screenwriting - Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel

Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel have been writing television and film scripts for decades. Starting with Happy Days, they followed actor-turned-director Ron Howard into feature films like Night Shift, Splash, Gung Ho, Parenthood, and Edtv.

In total, Ganz and Mandel have written eighteen, yeah eighteen, produced feature screenplays, including City Slickers, A League of Their Own, Mr. Saturday Night, Forget Paris, Where the Heart Is, Robots, and Fever Pitch, while also maintaining a "secret career" of un-credited rewrites on studio comedies. Oh, and they never wrote a spec script.
Have a listen to these guys as they reminisce...

I think they should have stuck to TV.
