What’s it like to work with a writing partner? Do you only have to do half the work? Do you fight constantly or is it all smiles and hugs? Is there always one person not pulling their own weight? Serial writing partners Guy Edmonds and Matt Zeremes (Zombie Diaries and Zoo Crew) will be pitted against Kate and Jol Temple (The Underdogs and Bin Chicken) to discover who has the greater writing partnership. The gloves are off! Hosted by Nathan Luff.
