Susan McMartin enjoyed a successful career in Hollywood for 20 years, writing for TV shows including Gary UnMarried, Californication and Another World. Then, right before she turned forty, amidst the rise of reality TV and the fall of scripted series, everything came to a screeching halt. Broke and about to give up, she did something that turned her life around: she tried something new. Susan shares her story of how venturing off the beaten path led the thriving career she now enjoys as a supervising producer on the CBS hit series, MOM. And that’s not all. After writing Mr. Church and spending more than a decade trying to get it made, the feature film starring Eddie Murphy hit theaters nationwide last year.
