Happy Sunday, everyone.  Hope you're all having a terrific weekend.

For this edition of Coffee & Content, I've chosen one of the best videos I've seen lately on writing and developing compelling characters.  The main focus of the piece is on the first season of True Detective written by Nic Pizzolatto.  But the video also covers some weak examples from other films and television shows and offers some sage advice from Aaron Sorkin, John Truby and others.

So whether you're a writer, actor, filmmaker or producer, I believe you'll find more than a few takeaways.  Hope you enjoy, share and discuss.
