Over The Hill At 30

Turn 30 in Hollywood, and your career is all but over. And we’re not just talking actors and actresses. Writers too. “Hollywood once had a notorious blacklist of political radicals; today it has a greylist of ‘oldies’.

Some writers complain they cannot find an agent once they pass 50, making it almost impossible to present scripts.”
