Executive Producer Janet Tamaro created Rizzoli & Isles, a successful TNT series about two women, a cop and a medical examiner, that’s in its fifth season. She’s a prolific writer who began her career as a journalist. She talks about how difficult writing really is, and how she faces a massive challenge when she sees a blank page. She hopes there will be more women writing for movies and television, as well as becoming showrunners. Combining work with raising two daughters is another challenge she discusses.
