‘The Affair’ Showrunner Sarah Treem on Why Season 3 Veers a Different Direction

20 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It took two obscure poets for Sarah Treem to accept that her show was a love story. The showrunner discovered 20th century writers Linda Gregg and Jack Gilbert, who wrote from differing points of view about their relationship, just as she and her writing staff were developing the major story arcs for Season 3 of the Showtime drama, and she was realizing how her perception of the show had changed.

“[Gregg]’s writing about their divorce and [Gilbert]’s writing about their divorce, and it’s really like our show, in that you would never believe that it was the same story,” she said to IndieWire during the Television Critics Association press tour. “It’s like, ‘Oh right, it’s a love story.’ It’s not a fairy tale love story, but it’s still a love story.”

James Burrows Shares His Secrets From Four Decades of TV Directing

It’s often said in television that nobody knows what makes a hit. But that’s not entirely true. James Burrows has a test that has rarely failed him in his 40-plus years of directing multicamera comedy series.
