Lord Of The Rings TV Show Writer Gives Out Free Money On Twitter To Help With COVID-19 Relief

Gennifer Hutchison has been very generous with her time and money lately on social media.


Veteran TV writer Gennifer Hutchison--whose credits include Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and the upcoming Lord of the Rings TV show for Amazon--is doing her part to help people facing hardship during the COVID-19 crisis.

For a period of time on Twitter, Hutchison was giving away $100 to everyone who replied to her tweet or sent her a DM. "The end of the month is always stressful, and pandemic makes it worse," Hutchison wrote. "If you need a little help right now, let me know. No need to justify. I'll take you at your word you could use the hand."

Hutchison said she gave away $100 to as many people as she could before wrapping up. "If I didn't get to you, I'm sorry. I'll try to do this again if I can," Hutchison wrote. "And if you have the means, please scroll the replies and send some folks a little help."

Hutchison has been generous with her time and money on social media. Before this, she offered up a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how writers' rooms operate to help up-and-coming writers get an idea for what they can expect in the industry.

Production on the Lord of the Rings TV show has stopped due to the COVID-19 crisis, and there is no word just yet as to when it will begin again.
