Co-author Tom Sawyer has written nine network TV pilots and one hundred produced network teleplays, both comedy and drama. He was Head Writer/Producer of the long-running hit, Murder, She Wrote, for which he wrote 24 episodes, and of its spinoff series, The Law & Harry McGraw. He is co-librettist/lyricist of JACK, a contemporary opera about John F. Kennedy that recently premiered in Dublin. Mr. Sawyer, who knows storytelling, has this to say about plotting: "Every professional writer knows there are no new plots. They were all used up before Shakespeare picked up a pen. What all of us do is put these tried-and-true stories through our own unique filters to make them our own. Thats what PLOTS UNLIMITED is all about."
