Write On with ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘Highwayman’ Writer Eileen Jones

October 8, 2021

TV and feature writer Eileen Jones talks about her career with screenwriting coach Lee Jessup. Eileen Jones made her entry into screenwriting through the Warner Brothers' Television Workshop, which led to being staffed on the TV series Lethal Weapon. Eileen has since moved into feature films, penning the original female-led action western Highwayman after participating in the inaugural Lucky Exports Pitch Program. She is currently writing the female-led spy movie Marks for New Line Cinema, The Safran Company, and Hodson Exports.
 
Eileen talks about breaking in, sustaining her career, and how to stay inspired: "What makes you excited? What is going to be fun for you to sit down and write every day? I've certainly had experiences where I wrote a script where I was like, 'This is small, it's really personal, I just need to write it, so I'm gonna do it,' and that's been valuable. But for me, now, I'm really thinking about, 'How do I have that meaningful conversation with as many people as possible?'"
