Paul, I think it’s fair to say that ageism is more of an issue in TV than movies. Indeed there was a multi-million dollar settlement on the part of the WGA vs. various Hollywood entities precisely on this point perhaps 10–12 years ago (if memory serves me). Nowadays with Netflix, Amazon, etc, everything is changing. The bottom line still persists: If you write something they want, movie or TV, age doesn’t really matter.
