Feedback form is now closed.

Nancy Hower & John Lehr have produced completely improvised comedies for Sony, NBC, TBS, Comedy Central, Hulu and more.  What sets Hower & Lehr apart is their soup-to-nuts approach. In addition to creating, pitching and writing every episode of their shows, the team are  “Showrunners” -- they fully  produce every aspect of the day to day operations, dealing with everything from schedules to budgets. They have co-written the scripts for every episode with Hower directing and Lehr acting. This unique skill set puts them in a position to speak on all phases of improvised television production, which is exactly what they’ll do.
