TV writer David Grae (Joan of Arcadia, The Gilmore Girls) and UCLA physicist David Saltzberg (technical consultant, The Big Bang Theory) will talk about the interaction between TV writers and scientists serving as technical consultants in Hollywood, each offering his perspective and taking questions from the participants. The session will then turn into a mock "Writer's Room." participants will suggest ideas for a new physics-centric TV series.

David Salzberg refers to some academic articles on this topic in his remarks:
