Hey there! The shows I’ve worked on (also including Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, so exciting!) have all been run on a pretty standard writers room model. The staff breaks the story together, then the writer of the episode goes off to outline, lather, notes, repeat.
On Lizzie Bennet and the other web series, we wound up with a model similar to what you’ll see on animated shows. The room would get together to break the arc of the episodes we were shooting on our next production date, we’d assign the episodes and because they were so short, just send the writers off to draft. They’d come back and we’d ask for revisions, or or if it was close (which I usually was) Bernie or I would just do a showrunner pass to make sure we were keeping the voices consistent.
I think I’ve got my breaking in story elsewhere in the threads, so I won’t re-hash that here.
