30 Years of thirtysomething
Prior to a television landscape that favors realism over idyllic life, where major characters face the risk of "being killed off," and daily life is portrayed somewhat accurately, thirtysomething did all that and more. The show that was an early experiment that quickly became a phenomenon, rewriting the rules for dramatic series in more ways than one. Helmed by creators Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, thirtysomething not only drew viewers into the lives of its characters and tested the boundaries of conventional storytelling, it thrived with a multi-hyphenate cast, many of whom stepped into the role of director during the series run -- then stayed there for the next 30 years. ATX reunites these dynamic creatives as they look back at the series that re-wrote the book on TV dramas, and paved the way for a new direction in their careers.

Alias Writers Room Reunion
One of the most ambitious thrillers to ever air on network TV, Alias featured a breathlessly exciting and twisty universe of action, espionage, and deception. Born from the visionary mind of J.J. Abrams, the series’ intricate web of allegiances and treachery was bolstered by an all-star team of writers — many of whom started the show with little experience in directing or producing TV, but eventually went on to become high-profile, bankable talents for bringing blockbuster genre fare to film and TV. More than a decade after leaving the air, and now in league with the industry’s most prolific executive producers, the creative team behind Alias reunites to reflect on the show’s long-term impact, the challenges of maintaining their elaborate concept across 105 episodes, and to share their favorite moments in the life of Sydney Bristow.

BFFs: A Look Into Creating and Establishing Friendships on TV
We all know love is complicated, but not every great relationship arc exists in the dramatic surroundings of romance and family. Some of the most compelling storylines on television are anchored in the loyalties and complexities of friendship and brother/sisterhood. The writers and actors behind some of TV's most indelible friendships discuss the rare mix of chemistry, great writing, and (we assume) a tiny bit of witchcraft that goes into earning (and maintaining) viewers' trust in these platonic soulmate relationships.
