Premise: Academy Award-winning screenwriter (``The Descendants'') and actor/comic (``Community'') Jim Rash hosts ``The Writers' Room,'' which opens doors into the minds of TV's creative thinkers. Each episode visits the writing team for one of television's pop-culture-defining scripted shows, among them ``Breaking Bad,'' ``Parks and Recreation,'' ``Dexter,'' ``Game of Thrones,'' ``New Girl'' and ``American Horror Story.'' The round-table discussions -- both hilarious and candid in tone -- reveal rare insights behind plot points, tough decisions and big mistakes. Key cast members -- including Bryan Cranston, Amy Poehler, Michael C. Hall and Jake Johnson -- join the conversations as well.
