How to write for Tina Fey from ADMISSION screenwriter Karen Croner

Admission

Karen Croner spent years writing dramas about characters with terminally ill diseases. Although she loved her work, after a while she started to yearn for something different. In a moment of epiphany she said one day, “I want to write a comedy for Tina Fey.”

While it seemed like a long shot, with a few careful (and lucky, as she puts it) moves, she was on her way to writing Admission, the romantic comedy about a Princeton admissions officer who has the chance to admit a student who might be her long lost son.

Tina Fey plays the admissions officer and the adorable Paul Rudd plays an alternative high school teacher who urges her to come out of her shell and try something new. Lily Tomlin and Michael Sheen co-star in this indie comedy based on a novel by the same name written by Jean Hanff Korelitz.
