Lord Of The Rings TV Writer Explains Her Process In Twitter Q&A

Writer Gennifer Hutchison has also written for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.


While writer Gennifer Hutchison can’t tell you anything about her work on the Lord Of The Rings TV show yet, she can talk about her work in general. In a Q&A posted to Twitter the TV writer, whose prior credits also include Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, talked about her writing process.

With many of the questions coming from other writers both professional and aspiring, it’s no surprise that Hutchison was asked about her process. Here’s the general outline:

She also spoke about writing characters and character-focused work, after defining it as one of the things she is most proud of in her work.

Hutchison also spoke of the occasional challenge of bringing TV characters to life as a collaboration between writers, actors, and the many other people involved in the production--especially when actors get attached to the characters they play.

Lord of the Rings fans stressing about the upcoming TV adaptation may be relieved at the fact that Hutchison--one of the writers on Amazon’s TV show--lists Peter Jackson’s trilogy as one of her favorite movie-going experiences.

The full thread is currently available on her Twitter, though people looking for new tidbits on the Lord of the Rings show have already been warned that they shouldn’t go trawling through the writers’ Twitter profiles for clues. Fans of Hutchison’s other work on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul can find answers specifically about those shows as part of the Q&A, however, as well as plenty of interesting information about the writing process as a whole.

The Lord of the Rings show is expected to air sometime in 2021. The final season of Better Call Saul is also expected sometime next year.
