TCA: Sundance opens up TV process

'The Writers' Room' unveils how scribes work behind scenes on top shows

Sundance Channel is drawing back the curtain on the TV process with a greenlight of new reality series “The Writers’ Room.”

Six-episode half-hour skein is set to premiere in the second half of the year.

Cabler made the announcement during its Television Critics Assn. panel Saturday at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena.

RelativityREAL will produce, with Tom Forman and Marco Bresaz serving as exec producers.

On the unscripted side, Sundance has second seasons of both “Push Girls” and “The Mortified Sessions” upcoming.

Net has high hopes for a pair of scripted projects in spring. First is “Rectify,” from writer-producer Ray McKinnon, about a convict’s first few days out of jail after being incarcerated for 20 years. “Rectify,” which premieres April 22, is Sundance’s first wholly owned production.

There’s also “Top of the Lake,” from director Jane Campion and starring Holly Hunter — the two teamed on bigscreen venture “The Piano” — and “Mad Men” vet Elisabeth Moss. “Lake” is a seven-part mini that will debut March 18.
