Veteran TV and pilot writer Bill Taub will take us through the process of writing pilots and new series for television, cable & new media. He will also lead our analysis and in-depth discussion of Chuck Rose's pilot script The Art Of More, which comes to the Sony-owned streaming service Crackle on November 19.
The Art of More exposes crime and intrigue behind the glamorous facade of New York auction houses, and the sparring over auction items worth millions of dollars. But beneath the glitz, it's a ruthless story of money, sex, greed, and desperation. The 10-episode series is a sort of a procedural with a new auction that will drive each episode's narrative in addition to exploring some broader season arcs.
Genres: Crime, Drama
Cast: Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow, G.I. Joe:
The Rise of Cobra), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride,
Saw), Kate Bosworth (21, Superman Returns),

and Chuck Rose (Almost Dangerous)
