The Museum of Television & Radio in Los Angeles is proud to present a

for Television on Monday, March 26 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m..

This seminar will examine writing fantastical series for television.  The
panel will discuss changes in the genre over the last five decades, as well
as the practical business of adapting cosmic visions to the small screen.
The seminar will also address the challenges of defining this elusive genre,
which, by the very nature of its imaginative mandate, includes such varied
examples as the unsettling visions and moral authority of The Twilight Zone,
the optimism and excitement of Star Trek and Babylon 5, the paranoia and
dystopian forebodings of The X-Files and Max Headroom, and the emotional
complexity and self-awareness of Roswell.
