NOTE: TV-MA Modern television is now home to some of the best, most engrossing storytelling happening in American culture. Audiences loved last year's evening at NWS with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, and before that Mad Men writers and producers Janet Leahy and Lisa Albert. This exclusive, one-of-a-kind event has become a signature evening and much anticipated by National Writers Series audiences. The National Writers Series is proud to present An Evening with Chip Johannessen, one of television's most creative and successful writers and producers. Chip Johannessen is Executive Producer and writer of Homeland. Critics have hailed Homeland as the best thing on television, period. Think of this drama as a "filmed" story you might read in The New Yorker, influenced by deep character study and gripping suspense. On January 13, 2013, Homeland was television's big winner of the evening at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis won Best Actress and Best Actor in a television drama, and Homeland was named Best Television Drama. Johannessen brought pages from his favorite scripts to accompany a select reel of "Homeland" moments. Chip Johannessen will take you backstage as he and Doug Stanton explore how Homeland is brought to life from script to screen.
