DZ-19: Car-Crash Characters

How do you make unlikeable characters compelling to watch… in drama?

Stu and Chas revisit a topic from a year ago: how do screenwriters make unlikeable characters compelling? This time, we turn our focus to dramas and analyse how AMERICAN HISTORY X, YOUNG ADULT, NIGHTCRAWLER all make their a**hole protagonists compelling to watch. We expand our original list of five writer’s tools to include a few more for your tool belt.

In response to our audience survey, we also introduce our first episode of backmatter.
