Pasadena, Calif. - Sundance has greenlit the new unscripted series The Writers' Room, a behind-the-scenes look into the writers' rooms of TV shows, the network announced at the 2013 Television Critics' Association winter press tour Saturday.

Presented in partnership with Entertainment Weekly, the six-episode half-hour Writers' Room will premiere in the second half of 2013. The roundtable talk show format will ask creative talent from to-be-announced top TV series to talk about their greatest choices, toughest decisions and biggest mistakes.

"We know that much of today's best entertainment is on television, but Sundance Channel and Entertainment Weekly want to know-who, what, when, where and why?!" said Sundance Channel general manager Sarah Barnett in a statement. "Social media has given us a lot of information about what our audience is craving- and we are listening. They want insider knowledge and a deeper perspective-- this show will deliver that."

RealativityREAL will produce Writers' Room with Tom Forman serving as executive producer and Marco Bresaz executive-producing for Sundance.
