In this episode we speak with Ted Griffin, a screenwriter best known for writing Ocean's Eleven (2001), who also co-produced The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) and executive produced Up in the Air (2009).

Drilling down into Ocean's Eleven, we discuss Ted's research for the script in Las Vegas, the intricacy of creating and interweaving the stories of eleven defined characters, and his responsibility to keep the film's complicated narrative on the rails during principal photography. We also touch on his work with, and the work of, Martin Scorsese.
