Big Deal Screenwriter Karen McCullah Talks About Her Career

Well, Karen is a big deal. She’s the credited writer on LEGALLY BLONDE, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, ELLA ENCHANTED, and upcoming karen-mccullahTHE EXPENDABELLES, just to name a few little films, and if that isn’t enough, she and our Beloved Leader, LB, go back over 20 years, when Karen was a student in one of the first college classes he ever taught, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In fact, LB showed her work to producer Paul Junger Witt (GOLDEN GIRLS, among other) and, well, the rest is history.

In the following video, Karen tells us the secret to writing strong female characters, how casting works, and a bit about her book The Bachelorette Party.

EDITED BY LB TO ADD: Of course Karen knows how to write strong women. She’s about as strong as you can get. Talk about an inside track!
