    Meet the 2011 Tribeca Filmmakers | "Treatment" Directors Steven Schardt and Sean Nelson

    Leonard and Nelson have been friends for ages. Leonard is the charismatic, underachieving, but obsessive screenwriter looking for a fast track to success, and Nelson is his self-deprecating and accommodating writing partner who always has a few bucks to spare. As both confront a mid-30s reality check and a pile of unsuccessful screenplays, Leonard convinces Nelson to back his stint at a glitzy LA rehab clinic so he can pitch their new movie deal to mega-star Gregg D. As the half-baked plan twists and turns, and Leonard's ambition and selfishness spin out of control, the writing duo's friendship cries for an overdue dose of reality. [Synopsis ...

    5 Reasons Why A 'Party Down' Movie Will Never Happen

    First, don't get it wrong. We absolutely loved every second of "Party Down" during it's all too brief run on Starz. If you haven't seen the show, you have no idea what you're missing.

Created and written by John Enbom, Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge, and Paul Rudd the show was both hilarious and tender, perfectly encaps...
