The roundtable-style series will launch in the second half of 2013.

Sundance Channel is going behind the scenes, with a new unscripted series about the creative minds behind TV’s top shows.

Titled The Writers’ Room, the roundtable-style talk show — in partnership with Entertainment Weekly — takes viewers inside the minds of writers and producers who make the shows people watch.

The six-episode half-hour series is slated to premiere in the second half of 2013, it was announced Jan. 5 at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

RelativityREAL will produce the series with Tom Forman and Marco Bresaz as executive producers.

Don’t ya love it when they glorify writers? We sure do. A couple of folks have said this is just a kind of recruitment show, but so what? We’re already standing in the “I wanna be a TV writer” line.
