Industry Veteran Shares Insights on Breaking into TV

“TV is where the writing is,” William Rabkin told a room full of Media & Communications Studies students on our Providence campus. “TV is where you can tell a story about anything.”

Rabkin, the assistant director of the MFA for Writing and Producing for Television program at LIU Brooklyn, visited JWU to deliver a talk titled “Breaking into Television—And Staying in Once You’re There.” With more than 30 years of experience in the television industry, if there’s anyone that can talk TV, it’s Rabkin. His many writing and producing credits include “Monk,” “Psych,” “Spencer: For Hire,” “Martial Law,” and “Diagnosis Murder,” among many others.
