Erin Cardillo and Rich Keith have been developing TV together since 2011, but it was winning the 2013 New York Television Festival that solidified their partnership. Shortly thereafter, they partnered with Alloy Entertainment to develop Significant Mother for CW Seed, a half hour comedy that was picked up to series by the network and premiered on The CW in 2015. Also in 2015, Cardillo & Keith sold an original pilot script to The CW called, The I Do Crew, with Little Engine Productions and Warner Brothers. In 2016, Cardillo & Keith served as Co-Executive Producers for Fuller House season 2 on Netflix and sold another original pilot to The CW called Life Sentence, with Doozer Productions and Warner Brothers. Life Sentence premiered on The CW in 2018.

In this episode, we learn how two entirely different career paths landed Erin and Rich exactly where they needed to be, from first meeting in an acting class in Los Angeles, to winning the prestigious New York Television Festival for their pilot, and all the little moments in between. Listen to find out how they wrote the script that became their calling card to agents and how they earned themselves a development deal with the top networks in the industry. This is an incredibly insightful interview for every actor and writer who wants to find their own voice.

Recently, Cardillo and Keith have began their own production company called In Good Company. Look out for Cardillo’s upcoming romantic comedy, Isn’t It Romantic, starring Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra and Liam Hemsworth.

“I think that’s a big thing for writers out there who might be listening to this podcast is, you know, it starts with producing material and producing as much material as you can, that you can get into as many hands as possible, but then there is a little bit of serendipity and trust and all of those things involved to actually get stuff on the air.”

“You are perceived in a certain way whether you like it or not.”

“Everybody has a story to tell, its a contract you’ll never sign.”

“The things that you like the least about yourself are the the things you should own up to first with strangers and it will make people connect with you quicker.”

“You get better each time you write.  So as you get better you start second guessing yourself more, you start looking for more structure.”

BONUS: Warner Loughlin

BONUS: Warner Loughlin 1500 1000 Alyshia Ochse

Warner Loughlin has been coaching on set and privately for more than 20 years. Known for her warmth and intuitive approach, her technique shatters the myth that an actor’s past emotional traumas must be the fuel or foundation for their work.

In her earlier days in New York, Warner studied theatre with Lee Strasberg, Sonia Moore, and Michael Kahn (head of the drama department at Julliard from 1992-2006). Once in LA, Warner focused on film and TV, working as an actor, director and producer. She opened Warner Loughlin Studios in 1996 and has since worked with and shaped the careers of some of the biggest actors in Hollywood. From Oscar, Emmy and Tony nominees and winners, Warner is a star among the stars.

Warner continuously works with Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds, Zooey Deschanel, Ashley Williams, Valerie Cruz, George Lopez, Amber Valletta, Blake Lively, and Ginnifer Goodwin…just to name a few.

While the demand for her time and expertise is high, Warner will always have a place in her heart (and schedule) for beginning actors.

Warner studied Contemporary Literature and Shakespeare at Oxford University and received her Bachelor of Arts degree, with honors, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
