TV writing is different than other mediums, involving the writer.
One has the responsibility to oneself, to the writer, director and the people who put up the money, to put out the best of what one has experienced and understood about the human condition as it relates to the role one has been hired to portray.
Just being hired by a great director is complimentary.
Rarely ever see or meet the writer during shooting.
Most screenplays depend primarily on the vision of a director.
As a very experienced writer once told me, ‘It’s in the rewrites’.
