In this episode of "A Conversation With," I sat down with Patrick Coker an Actor, Director, TV Writer, and Executive Producer. Patrick talked about his rise to fame as a writer and director during our conversation. He also shared the first time he was asked to write for television, but with absolutely no experience in TV writing. Here is a little excerpt of our conversation:
"Patrick Corker: Well, the first time I was asked to write tv episode, I had never done that either because up until that time, the only thing I had written with shorts and narrative features and writing for tv is a totally different monster.
But you know you you get opportunities, and the only thing that can happen is you could feel that's the worst thing that can happen ▪ but you know what if you don't fail, but if you succeed, you know what you want to do and that pushes you further towards your ultimate goal.
So I mean, if you fail, even when you fail, there's lessons learned there.
So the next opportunity to get, you don't have to worry about making those mistakes. "
