Writing for television is fun – if you’re really good at it

Jul 15, 2013

Ron Fitzgerald has written for the hit network television series "Friday Night Lights" and the Showtime hit series "Weeds" but he started his writing career as a playwright.

Fitzgerald is in Missoula this week to participate in the annual Missoula Colony sponsored by the Montana Repertory Theater. The colony is an annual weeklong workshop for aspiring stage and screen writers. In this feature interview, Fitzgerald talks with News Director Sally Mauk about starting his career as a playwright in New York and then moving into TV.

"Going into a show like WEEDS where I was a fan already, I'm thinking, man I better not do something to mess this up."
